International Food Villains of the Diabetes World

Should people with diabetes and those at risk of developing this condition, eat carbohydrates or not?

The answer is ‘yes and no!’

Complex carbohydrates which are low in sugar can help us eat well, and make for the most delicious meals. This is because our bodies take time to digest them, and they do not lead to sudden spurts in blood sugar.

Simple carbohydrates enter the blood stream quickly, and many people who either suffer from diabetes, or who are prone to it, tend to have trouble moving the glucose surges in to cells for energy.

A simple carbohydrate which is high in sugar is a red sign, because it is nearly impossible for anyone without a fully functional pancreas to handle all the calories! Staying away from such food is a cornerstone of diabetes management and prevention as well.

Simple carbohydrates high in sugar are international favorites, and meal tables and food service outlets are full of them. Here is a list of the 10 top villains:









Sodas with sugar

Candies and Chocolate
