What is a good emergency carbohydrate snack for when your blood sugar is low?

15g simple carbs: Assuming you mean for a diabetic that can eat, 15 grams of simple carbs (things that taste sweet, made of real sugar) such as glucose tablets, juice, quick dissolving candy. Complex carbs that require digestion (bread, pasta) will take longer to raise blood sugar. Avoid snacks with fat, bc the fat will slow absorption too. ...Read more

If you like it...: But it won't either help or hurt you. A good, healthy well-balanced diet and daily exercise is much more important than any specific restriction. Gluten restriction is only important if you're gluten sensitive and the same with dairy if you're lactose intolerant. You can't avoid sugar since it's in all the foods you eat. ...Read more

Is there a limit to how much fruit you eat per day? Is the sugar in fruit good for you? Thank u

Is there a limit to how much fruit you eat per day? Is the sugar in fruit good for you? Thank u

Fruits have sugar: Everything in moderation. Eating too much fruit is unhealthy. Fruits have sugar (some have lots of it), and sugar is sugar. It's bad to eat too much fruit sugar. Think of fruit as a snack item, a treat. The fiber and water in the fruit is good to have, as well as the vitamins and other nutrients... but not the sugar. Fruit juice also has lots of sugar (it's better to eat fruit than drink juice). ...Read more

Why is a fat diet not good for you?

Why is a fat diet not good for you?

Moderation: How much fat are we talking about? You need carbohydrates- to run the brain, heart, muscles etc. If your diet is over 50% fat, you may be limiting the ability of the body to function. Some fats, like unsaturated fats are healthier than saturated fats- are solid at room temperature. I say moderation- 20% of diet from protein, 60% from carbs like fruits, vegetables,grains and 20% healthy fats ...Read more

Can eating chapathi only (as a dietary food) good for blood sugar patients? Is rice bad for blood sugar?

Can eating chapathi only (as a dietary food) good for blood sugar patients? Is rice  bad for blood sugar?

Carbohydrates: Eaten alone, chapathi and rice may cause your blood sugar to rise rapidly. Insulin doses and pancreatic response may not be able to keep up. If you want to eat those foods, adding protein, non-starchy (fibrous) vegetables, and healthy fat will help your system deal with the carbohydrate more gradually. Chapathi is a little more nutrient-dense than rice, though. http://tinyurl.com/mxm8qh3. ...Read more
