Diabetic friendly foods to manage blood sugar levels and stay healthy.

Managing blood sugar levels is the main objective for diabetic people. Right food choices is very important. Complex carbohydrates are carbohydrates that take longer to break down into glucose; such as vegetables, fruits, whole grains and beans. Protein is made up of amino acids. Along with growth and repair, they preserve muscle mass, hormone production, enzyme production, properly functioning immune system and to provide energy if carbohydrates aren't available.

Proteins from vegetable sources are thought to be better than those from animal sources. Fat is used for cell membranes, energy, absorbing fat soluble vitamins, support for your internal organs and to provide taste and texture to food. Fibre, a type of carbohydrate, removes waste and promotes bowel health by allowing waste to move more quickly through your gut. They are mostly found in grains, fruits and milk but are also found in nuts, seeds, beans and vegetables.

Managing blood sugar levels is the main aim of diabetic people. Right food choices are very important. Eating at regular intervals of time is best practice. There are many factors involved in diabetes management. We will share with you some of the basic things about food choices.

Carbohydrates are of two types, simple carbohydrates, and complex carbohydrates.

Sugar is present in our normal everyday foods and drinks. Say for example white rice, fruit juices, and processed foods. These belong to simple carbohydrates.

Starch and Fibre are also part of carbohydrates, but these are complex in nature. Whole grains, fruits, and vegetables are simple examples of this.

Simple carbohydrates will raise your sugar level immediately on consumption. Whereas fibre foods help. They don't raise sugar levels, but they release the required energy in a slow manner.

Many factors, including lifestyle, sleep patterns, and stress affect blood sugar levels. But food is an important aspect of it.

After we eat, carbohydrates broke down into glucose and enter the bloodstream. Insulin in our body allows glucose to enter cells to provide energy.

Consider a person with diabetes who takes food with high carbohydrates. Immediately it raises their sugar levels. To keep their sugar level normal, they need a high amount of insulin or have to undergo medication.

But food with natural fibre will not break so fast, so it will not raise the sugar levels. Foods, such as vegetables, fruits, whole grains and beans belong to complex carbohydrates.

Added to this, Fibre removes waste and promotes bowel health. It allows waste to move faster through your gut.

Next comes protein, They are from amino acids. Along with growth and repair, they do other activities. They preserve muscle mass, hormone production, enzyme production, and a functioning immune system. And to provide energy if carbohydrates aren't available.

Proteins from plant-based sources are better than those from animal sources. A lot of debate goes on this topic.

So, Diabetic friendly food should be 1. Low in carbohydrate, 2. Rich is fibre, 3. Considerable amount of protein should available.
