White Bread White bread is a staple in many breakfast menus. It may be quick and convenient to have a slice or two of white bread with some jam or butter before leaving the house. 2. Sugar-Loaded Breakfast Cereals When youre running late in the morning, you may not have time to eat anything but a quick bowl of cereal. 3. Fatty Meats Fatty or marbled cuts of meat are not good for people with diabetes or those at risk of the disease. 4. Soda Sweetened sodas are hugely popular throughout America, but it is a bad beverage choice for diabetics due to the high sugar and calorie content. 5. Canned Fruit Juice Canned fruit juice may be a convenient way of ensuring regular fruit intake, but it is not good for diabetics or people at risk of the disease. 6. White Rice White rice is a staple in diets in Asian countries and very popular elsewhere in the world. But due to being highly processed, white rice can cause blood sugar spikes similar to that of sugar. 7. Potatoes and French Fries Consuming potatoes whether baked, boiled, mashed or as French fries on a regular basis is harmful for people who have diabetes. 8. Pancakes or Waffles with Syrup Though easy to make and tasty to eat, pancakes are another food that people with diabetes or at a higher risk for it should avoid. 9. Sugary Fruits Fruits are generally a healthy option for everyone. Most fruits are healthy for diabetics as well but not the ones that are high in sugar content. 10. Flavored Coffee A normal cup of black coffee with no sugar is perfectly fine for a prediabetic. The problem arises when you go to your local coffee shop and order that large sized Frappucino or white Chocolate Mocha or any other beverage of the sort.

26 Best And Worst Foods For Diabetics

Despite conventional wisdom, a diabetes diagnosis doesn’t mean you have to commit to a bland and boring diet. There are loads of delicious foods that are safe and healthy to eat—you may just not know what they are yet. But that’s okay, because we’re here to help! Read on to discover the best and worst drinks, grains, proteins, and produce picks for your diet, according to top nutritionists. Once you’ve read through the list and added some things to your shopping list, click over to these 15 Cooking and Eating Tips If You Have Diabetes to find out how to transform the Eat This picks into delicious, satisfying meals. According to the American Diabetes Association, it’s important to choose the most nutritious whole grains possible. Although grains help to maintain steady blood-sugar levels and provide heart-healthy fiber, white flour-based products can’t claim the same. Because the bran, germ, and endosperm have been compromised, these foods elevate blood-sugar levels and should only be consumed on occasion. “Oats contain a type of fiber called beta-glucan, which seems to have an anti-diabetic effect,” explains Jackie Newgent, RDN, CDN, author of The All-Natural Diab Continue reading >>

    My experience pretty much mirrors Aarons and I also agree with Teymur. By and large I can get by with less sleep than before and when I do sleep I seem to benefit more from it, which is to say I seem to recover more quickly. In the very early days I had stints where I had some sleep disruptions of various kinds (not being able to get to sleep when I wanted to and so on) but resolved itself in time.

  2. Aaron Goold

    I agree with Jbs. This is just an n=1 answer, but I need less sleep after being in ketosis for at least a week. I used to need 9 hours of sleep. Now I can get 6-7 and feel fine. However, sometimes I wake in the middle of the night and cannot fall back asleep. I've heard from Dave Asprey (Bulletproof guy) that this is common with ketosis. He suggests having some quality carbs before bed. I tried, but haven't noticed a difference. The weird part is, some weeks I'll get only 5-6 hours a night due to work/stress/etc. I'll be tired the first 10-15 minutes, then feel fine all the way until bed. I still prefer to get 7-8 hrs, but now I'm not dying when I don't get it.
    Update: Wanted to add, I also practice intermittent fasting. Not sure how much that also affects sleep/ketosis, but something to consider in my response.

  3. Teymur Mammadov

    Not sure what you mean by sleep “architecture” - I’m going to assume you mean sleep patters (possibly?). Some people who go extremely low-carb (ketosis may have different degrees, you can be considered to be in ketosis with both 0.7 mMol and 4 mMol, but they are, obviously, very different levels of ketones) or no-carb often report sleep pattern disruptions - but individual reactions may vary. If that is an issue, it is recommended to consume low amount of healthy carbs at night before sleep (that’s one of the reasons I personally prefer consuming my carbs - however low - at night) - not so much as to take you out of ketosis, but enough to not interfere with your sleep.

    If you really meant to ask how ketosis affects sleep requirements - I would tend to agree with other writers: typically you might see a reduction in the need to sleep as you get more into ketosis and the associated lifestyle. I do personally consider that moderate ketosis is healthier than the so-called “balanced diet” - and healthier bodies need lees sleep. This effect, however, is not something that happens immediately. It requires you to become generally keto-adapted and make this a lifestyle. In other words - do not expect that by slipping into ketosis first time you would suddenly wake up refreshed after 5 hours of sleep :)

FREE 6 Week Challenge: https://gravitychallenges.com/home65d... Fat Loss Calculator: http://bit.ly/2O6rsdo The carb cycling diet is one of my favorite diets because it is one of the fastest way to burn fat while retaining as much muscle as possible. Most people don't know that carb cycling is actually a form of ketogenic dieting. The ketogenic diet is a diet that is lower in carbohydrates, which makes our body convert more dietary fat and body fat in to keytones in the liver. Which it then goes on to use for energy. Like I've said in many of my videos the human body prefers to use carbs as its primary source of energy. You're body won't produce too many keytones on a high carbohydrate diet, because your body won't need extra energy from fat due to the fact that its getting its energy from the more preferred carbohydrates. The only way for our body to use more fat for energy is by not having its preferred source there all the time. Eliminating carbs completely, however can have many drawbacks on our health and well being. Protein, carbs, and fats are all important and necessary for our body. So in comes the cyclical ketogenic diet aka carb cycling and also known originally as the anabolic Diet. There are many different approaches to carb cycling, but the general idea is that At some points of the week you're going to have a high amount of carbohydrates, and at other points of the week you're going to have a low amount of carbohydrates. Setting up the high carb and low carb splits will vary from one plan to the next. Some people may have very small changes in the amount of carbs they have from day to day. An example of this would be to set up a low carb, medium carb, and high carb day. Let's say 300 grams of carbs on high carb, 250 grams of carbs on your medium carb, and 200 grams of carbs on your no carb day. Another more advanced approach would be to do a High carb, low carb, and no carb day. The way that I like to set this kind of split up is by having a high amount of carbs on my high carb day, which for me would be somewhere around 400 grams, I would have one third or at the most half that amount for low carb day, and then try to get as close to 0 grams as possible on my no carb day and then repeat. An even more advanced approach would be to just cycle between high and no carb days. Or take it even a step further and do high, no, no. I don't really recommend having any more than two no carb days in a row. Make sure you don't jump to any extreme carb restrictions. An example of this is doing a 800 calorie diet when you could lose weight and maintain a better body composition with a 1500 calorie diet. Jumping to an extreme will not help you lose weight faster, in fact it'll probably backfire. Also in case you're wondering what kind of food you can eat on your no carb day, some great options are fish, chicken breast, ground turkey, protein shakes, Steak occasionally, and you can also have healthy fat sources like avocados, coconut oil, olive oil. and fatty fish like Salmon. For carbs make sure you are eating good sources of carbs like oats, brown rice, and sweet potatoes and avoid the junk food carbs. You can incorporate one cheat meal on one high carb day in the week, but that's it one cheat meal. You may notice that your strength and energy levels may go down while dieting like this. In fact you may feel like straight up garbage in the beginning. Understand that a lot of people feel this way when creating any kind of a calorie deficit. You're body will take a little while to adapt to using fat for energy instead of carbs. So the first 2 weeks can feel miserable. Give your body some time to adapt. A good idea is to plan your high carb days the day before a heavy lifting day, because this way you have stored glycogen available for your heavy lifts the next day. If you have no idea how many carbs to have on each day, try using a calorie calculator to find your maintenance macros and then add at least 50 grams of carbs to get the number for your high carb day. I'll include a calorie calculator in the description. Once you have your high carb number you should be able to figure out your low carb day. No carb day is obviously no carbs. After doing a carb cycling plan you may need to do some reverse dieting

The Diabetes Diet

What's the best diet for diabetes? Whether you’re trying to prevent or control diabetes, your nutritional needs are virtually the same as everyone else, so no special foods are necessary. But you do need to pay attention to some of your food choices—most notably the carbohydrates you eat. While following a Mediterranean or other heart-healthy diet can help with this, the most important thing you can do is to lose a little weight. Losing just 5% to 10% of your total weight can help you lower your blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels. Losing weight and eating healthier can also have a profound effect on your mood, energy, and sense of wellbeing. Even if you’ve already developed diabetes, it’s not too late to make a positive change. By eating healthier, being more physically active, and losing weight, you can reduce your symptoms or even reverse diabetes. The bottom line is that you have more control over your health than you may think. The biggest risk for diabetes: belly fat Being overweight or obese is the biggest risk factor for type 2 diabetes. However, your risk is higher if you tend to carry your weight around your abdomen as opposed to your hips and thig Continue reading >>

    Can non-diabetics have days of high numbers?

    HI Everyone-
    I have not been diagnosed with anything, but have been on and off monitoring my numbers over the past 9 months. On a regular test I had a fasting of 91. My dr wasn't concerned but I had read that normal was 83. I have health anxiety so I went out and bought a glucose meter. I started testing and everything seemed normal (except my fasting was typically around 90-91. My 1 hour and 2 hours were pretty good. For some reason I picked up the meter again and started testing and was getting some very large spikes at 1 hour. Not every time, but sometimes. It was usually after lunch (which is my first meal normally) and I was very very anxious testing at one hour for some reason. Once or twice I saw the number get as high as 175. By two hours I was always back around 100. I went to my dr in a panic and she felt that my anxiety was causing my 1 hr numbers to be high. I will admit that a few times I have not been meaning to test and I realize I ate 1 hour ago and I decide right then and there to test. My numbers at those times were much better....i hadn't had the build up of anxiety. ANyway I asked for a 1 hr oral glucose test and an hbaic. I passed the 1 hr test, but my number was 134. To me that is high but I do admit as much as I tried to stay calm I was anxious. My AIC was 5.1.
    I check from time to time and I have had some very disturbing numbers the past week. I keep reading that illness and lack of sleep can affect numbers. Is this true in non-diabetics also, or just diabetics? I took my fasting the other day. It was about 10am and I hadn't eaten since the night before. I had just finished vacuuming the house so my heart rate was up. It was 101/102 (took it twice) I was worried and I took it 10 minutes later and it was 107. 5 minutes later it was 110. It actually came down after I ate something.
    The next morning my numbers were 98/99
    Next day 97
    Today I got up and it was 107/105. Eeks! I went back to bed and freaked out to my husband for 10 minutes, went and took it again and it was 94/94??? I don't understand?
    However, i don't think I am sick, but I am in the middle of a horrible allergy problem. Since the first day of high numbers I have had a horrible sore throat, headache, and feel like my head is going to explode. I feel like I have a bad cold, but I know it is allergies as it happens every time the wind picks up here (which it did last week) I have also been dealing with a teething baby this past week and was up in the middle of the night for about 40 minutes with her. She woke up at 7am this morning, but with the time change a few days ago, my body still felt like it was 6am...and the allergies and lack of sleep didn't help.
    I have tested my post meal numbers the past couple days at lunch. Each meal had about 50g of carbs, but also had a good amt of protein. My 1 hrs were 101/114 and my two hours were both under 100. So those seem fine.
    I guess my question is- can not feeling well and lack of sleep affect someone with normal glucose tolerance to the point where I would be getting readings in the prediabetic levels a couple mornings? Or do these things only raise blood sugar in people who have glucose issues? And why would my glucose drop from 107 to 94 this morning in 10 minutes. Should I stop testing until I feel better?
    Sorry for the super long post but I would love some insight. As I said, I have pretty bad health anxiety so I get very nervous about these things. BTW- all other numbers on my blood test are good. High HDL, low LDL, triglycerides 43, BMI 18.5. I'm vegetarian so I probably eat a lot of carbs, but I eat very healthy food most of the time. Thanks in advance!

  2. furball64801

    You may drive yourself nuts worrying over a number. My suggestion is eat 3 meals a day, lower the carb intake and get out and walk. And the term healthy food means a total different thing to anyone dealing with blood sugar numbers. Carbs turn to sugar so you may have to eat more veggies and less of a few other things. None of those numbers can damage you but it might play with your anxiety that you have.

11 Foods To Avoid With Diabetes

Diabetes is a chronic disease that has reached epidemic proportions among adults and children worldwide (1). Uncontrolled diabetes has many serious consequences, including heart disease, kidney disease, blindness and other complications. Prediabetes has also been linked to these conditions (2). Importantly, eating the wrong foods can raise your blood sugar and insulin levels and promote inflammation, which may increase your risk of disease. This article lists 11 foods that people with diabetes or prediabetes should avoid. Carbs, protein and fat are the macronutrients that provide your body with energy. Of thesen three, carbs have the greatest effect on your blood sugar by far. This is because they are broken down into sugar, or glucose, and absorbed into your bloodstream. Carbs include starches, sugar and fiber. However, fiber isn't digested and absorbed by your body in the same way other carbs are, so it doesn't raise your blood sugar. Subtracting fiber from the total carbs in a food will give you its digestible or "net" carb content. For instance, if a cup of mixed vegetables contains 10 grams of carbs and 4 grams of fiber, its net carb count is 6 grams. When people with diabetes Continue reading >>

    I was wondering what your doctors have told you to do regarding taking metformin on Fasting days. Do you still take it?
    I could ask my doctor but scared she will tell me not to fast. I have spoken to her about dieting in the past and just got a lecture on lower calories and more exercise. Which although I know that’s a good idea I have had no succeeded in losing weight with this mentality for the last 10 years.
    I have PCOS and Insulin Resistance. It’s a pretty mild case but it worried me as I don’t want to get diabetes. I am a nurse and I know all about the complications some people get.

    Hi,
    Met does not cause Hypos, to the very best of my knowledge, so it shouldn’t effect you adversely.
    I’m on 1000mg Met a day ( when I can be bothered) and regularly eat under 1000 cal a day.
    In fact, ATM, I’m hitting no more than 800 cal a day…my BG MMOL has dropped 20% in a matter of a few days AND I’m taking my Met too.
    Pls read up on how Met interacts with your liver and you may come to the same conclusion as me.
    I wish you well.

  3. onnecar

    I just checked with my doctor today. Metformin does not cause hypos so can still be taken on fast days. I would probably still take it with food though. Albeit a low cal meal, as you can take it with either a snack or a full meal. As above though, will be checking my levels. I am also on sitagliptin which can cause hypos so I will be stopping this before I start the diet. Also my blood pressure meds as I don’t want low pressure. However that is just me as some people with very high blood pressure may not be in a position to do this.
