9 Foods Diabetics Should Never Eat

September 3, 2019

Both type 1 and type 2 diabetes can be debilitating
diseases that negatively affect a person’s quality of life. Diabetes is caused by high blood sugar levels
in the blood when the pancreas isn’t able to do its job properly or when certain cells
don’t use the insulin that the pancreas supplies. Today’s video will reveal 9 foods that people
who suffer from diabetes should remove from their diets. With exercise and sensible food choices, a
person who has been diagnosed with diabetes can normally keep their blood sugar levels
at manageable levels. Here are the foods we recommend diabetics
avoid: 1. Fruit Juices
Store bought fruit juices are full of extra sugar that will cause glucose levels to spike. Drinking these kinds of juices on a regular
basis has been proven to increase the risk of type 2 diabetes. Eating a piece of natural, whole fruit is
a great alternative. 2. Sugary Carbonated Drinks
Soft drinks and energy drinks are terrible for our bodies. They contain an enormous amount of sugar and
calories that are making people obese at an alarming rate. Those who already struggle with weight issues
are more likely to run the risk of developing diabetes, if they continue to consume these
drinks that are full of preservatives and additives. 3. White Bread
There’s an old adage that says, “The whiter the bread, the quicker you’re dead.” Although that may be alarming, for someone
with diabetes, this kind of bread that contains bleached flours and refined starches doesn’t
do much for us besides drive our blood sugar levels up. Refined carbohydrates are best to avoid. Instead, look for whole grains and oats that
contain more fiber and don’t cause spikes in blood sugar levels. 4. White Rice
Here’s another refined product that diabetics should avoid. Studies have shown that if you eat white rice
once a day, you’re 27% more likely to develop diabetes than if you were to eat whole grains
on a daily basis. White rice is digested easily by our bodies
and causes our glucose levels to rise quickly after eating it. Grains with a high fiber count are better
for us than white rice. 5. Potatoes
Though they taste great and are filling, the starchy potato should be avoided by those
who suffer from blood sugar problems. The starch in potatoes gets broken down too
quickly by our bodies and is absorbed into the blood stream. When that happens, our blood sugar levels
are going to rise quickly. This warning also includes French fries and
potato chips. Not only are both made from potatoes, they’re
also deep fried in hydrogenated oils that lead to an increase in cholesterol levels. So, eating French fries could lead to a greater
risk of diabetes and heart disease. 6. Artificial Sweeteners
Slick marketing tactics have sold artificial sweeteners to diabetics as a healthy alternative
to sugar. They’re not. These industrialized products hurt us more
than help us by reducing insulin sensitivity. They also tend to slow down our metabolism
and calorie burning ability. For someone with diabetes, it would be better
to consume sugar in moderation than these chemically-ridden sweeteners. 7. Raisins
Raisins are a quick and tasty snack that’s rich in vitamins, antioxidants, and fiber. But they also cause spikes in blood sugar,
and that’s why people with diabetes should try to avoid them. 8. Fat Cuts of Meat
Fatty cuts of pork or red meats like beef and lamb are harmful to those with blood sugar
issues. They contain saturated fats and increase the
risk of heart disease. They also increase inflammation in the body. 9. Whole Milk
Dairy products are also loaded with saturated fats—especially whole milk and anything
that is labeled as a full-fat dairy product. These kinds of dairy products raise cholesterol
levels—most notably the LDL or bad cholesterol. They also have a negative effect on our insulin
resistance. Almond milk is a healthier alternative.

    the point of juices for us are for if we get low. if we are supposed to avoid them we can drink milk. But what of you are lactose intolerant. What would you drink. Water juice.

    I know there are other stuff to drink than juice and milk. But come on. And also not everyone gets diabetes from being big. Even if you are big you probably wont get it.

    Sorry this made me rage.

    So you tell diabetics should go into raweating you aren't allowed to eat almost everything

  • Reply Warrendoe January 6, 2019 at 10:31 am

    Not factually accurate video. A low carb diet is good for diabetes and recommends meat and fat.
