bread raises blood sugar level. if you balance it w/meats (protein + fat) will this stunt the release of insulin, thus keeping bs level lower?

A healthy: well-balanced diet is most important. Everything you eat can raise your blood sugar. Eat bread with a lower glycemic index -- less processed. If you're overweight, work on dietary restriction, increased exercise and whatever medication your doctor has prescribed -- and keep monitoring your glucose.
