Yes: blood sugar can vary by processed food intake, number of calories, and fiber in diet. The best diet is one that is low in processed carbohydrates, high in fiber, and protein. The carbohydrates should be such as fresh fruits and vegetables. Avoid white bread, cakes, and sugar containing foods, they may cause the symptoms you are describing.
