5:39 The guidelines for carbohydrates
Today we're going to talk about sugar and diabetes, and what I would eat if I had diabetes. Diabetes and other blood sugar related problems are among the most common health problems I see.
Sugar increases insulin, which lowers the sugar in the blood and puts it in storage as fat. Carbs and sugar or carbs mixed with protein raise insulin, but fat does not raise insulin.
We do not need carbohydrates. A healthy diet should consist of fats and a moderate amount of proteins. A diabetic diet should have high quantities of fat. Sugar stimulates hunger, and you crave more food. 40 % of all heart diseases are related to excess sugar. Keeping your blood sugar levels in control is a primary objective for a healthy body.
What I would eat if I had diabetes:
• Low carbs
• Moderate protein
• High fats
The current recommendations for carbohydrates based on the American Diabetes Association are 45-60 grams of carbohydrates per day.
I believe blood sugar problems can be improved if the right foods are eaten, but overall sugars and carbs must be reduced. Fats can be increased.
Correction: at 0:26 – I mentioned that the "High sugar diet or high carbohydrate diets are really high-fat diets" The correction is that high sugar diets and high carb diets are producing high amounts of fat. They are not high-fat diets.
