Almonds control postprandial blood sugar

Many sugar friends are always unable to open their diet because of the burden of diabetes. For example, I heard that rice is high in sugar and does not eat staple food. Fruits raise blood sugar and stay away from it. Excluding fat-containing nuts and meat from the diet… In fact, these practices are misunderstandings in the diet of diabetes. Because as long as you eat the right method, choose the right time and the right amount, diabetic patients can be relieved on the diet.

Almonds are one of the foods that are easily misunderstood by people with diabetes. In the famous large-scale epidemiological study of the Nurses Health Study, women who ate about 150 grams of nuts per week had a 27% reduction in diabetes risk compared with women who never ate nuts. According to this quantity, you only need to eat 20 grams of nuts per day (about the amount that a woman’s hand can hold). In other words, eating a small amount of nuts, as long as you stick to it everyday, you can get the benefits of helping to prevent diabetes.

Almonds are good for controlling postprandial blood sugar, especially when eaten with starchy foods. Blood sugar experiments have found that using almonds to match white bread can significantly reduce postprandial blood sugar. If the postprandial blood glucose response when eating white bread is 100, then eating 60 grams of almonds can reduce the blood sugar response by nearly 30%. A related study confirms that obese diabetics who consume 70 grams of almonds a day can significantly reduce glycated hemoglobin and lower LDL (LDL) when total energy is constant. This means that almonds are good for long-term glycemic control and prevent cardiovascular complications in people with diabetes.

Therefore, it is recommended that diabetics eat a large almond every day, which not only helps blood sugar control, but also protects the heart and prevents cardiovascular complications. For obese people at risk of developing diabetes, eating almonds is also a good choice for preventing diabetes.
