Carbohydrates are the most important type of food that needs to be monitored in your daily meal. However, there are so many rules and regulations of what food you can take and what food you cannot take. This is very confusing to many people, and that is the reason why you need to have your diabetic recipes. Your doctor should be able to help you to come out with your special diabetic recipes.
Carbohydrates, when they are taken will break down into sugar and are absorb by our body. The sugar will be added to the existing sugar that is already inside your body. You don’t have to afraid to take carbohydrates every day. Carbohydrates are very important in supplying nutrients to our body. The only thing that you have to worry about is the portion that you need to take.
Some foods that contain carbohydrates can cause your blood sugar level rise in minutes and some with slower reaction. This is confusing, and to some people this is scary. That is why it is important that you check your sugar level after every meal. If possible, you should have your own device to check your sugar level for your own convenient.
Ideal diabetic recipes should contain enough portions of nutrients that are needed by your body. Reduce the number of foods on every meal but increase the frequency. You don’t have to starve. But remember you must avoid eating 2 hours before bedtime. When you sleep, your body is resting, and your digestion system is also slower. The foods that you take will not be burned as energy. It will be broken into sugar and the level of sugar in your blood will rise tremendously. This is very dangerous.
My recommendation is that your diabetic diet should contain more starchy carbohydrates that help to maintain normal blood sugar level. You may want to cut down on carbohydrate to some extent, either because of they rais your blood glucose levels too high or becaus you want to lose your weight, but it is never recommended to cut them out completely. Always remember to monitor your sugar level and you should be ok.
