Foods with Low GI have a lesser impact on your blood sugar levels. Limitation : GI score does not reflect the actual quantity of any given food and is determined in line with 100 gms of food. Limitation : GI score does not tell you anything about the rest of the nutritional value of a given food.
The incidence of Diabetes in both young and older adults has tripled in the last twenty years; and so have the number of myths surrounding it. One of the most common widespread beliefs is that Diabetes is an untreatable lifelong disease that limits a person from being able to do regular things like they did before. But gone are the days of “Once a diabetic, always a diabetic.” Evidence-Based Studies have shown that it is possible to stop this progression and work towards successfully preventing and Reversing Type 2 Diabetes.
Research studies show that the onset of Type-2 diabetes and prediabetes can be delayed or even prevented with lifestyle and dietary changes. By following a regular routine of healthy food changes, physical activity, and weight loss it is possible to prevent and manage both prediabetes and Type-2 diabetes. Other lifestyle modifications like managing your stress levels, quitting smoking and alcohol also contribute to a large extent.
