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

I think I have indigestion... But it's kept me from eating for the last 2 days and is not easing. I'm a fitness instructor so no food = no good. Help!?

Let's See...: Being unable to eat anything for 2 days because of "indigestion" (I assume this is your description of a painful sensation in your upper abdomen) is problematic and warrants a closer look. Many people experience a "hyperacidity" that disrupts sleep and causes a sour taste. But, an inability to eat anything sounds more concerning. How about a visit to your pcp?
