Eat Fruits at Breakfast for Stable Blood Sugar

Spread the love

Breakfast is often said to be the most important meal of the day. Even though this is an arguable claim, there is one fact about breakfast worth noting: it's usually the first blood sugar spike of the day.

Carbohydrates are essentially a breakfast staple. You will be hard pressed to find a morning menu that contains a carb-free meal. Whether its fruit juice loaded with added sugars or a piece of toast glazed with butter, it's hard to avoid a blood sugar spike when eating breakfast. That's not to say elevating your blood sugar is inherently harmful though middle-aged adults and Type 2 diabetics should pay particular attention to their food choices as they start their day.

Two food items that almost always leave their mark on breakfast are fruits and bread. When imagining the first daily meal, most people will think of a slice of toast or a bagel, or a serving of fruit as something to eat. As a side note, many people enjoy yogurt in the morning, which is an excellent option.

That said, rarely do people choose fruits consistently as their morning food. In fact, some people only eat fruits in the morning when served a hotel breakfast while on vacation. Inconvenience is often used as an excuse. Dicing up a mix of fruits into a bowl takes more work than spreading peanut butter on a slice of toast. It's true eating an apple is quick and easy, but not everyone likes apples. Eating one a day as the doctor suggests would also get stale if you're not a creature of habit. Coupled with the fact many people simply don't have an affinity for fruits, it's easy to see why toast, a bagel, or bowl of cereal is the #1-morning choice.

If you're looking to lose weight or remedy your high blood sugar levels, it will benefit you to eat fruits instead of many of the other options for the time being. Fruits, despite their high sugar content, are very high in fiber. Eating foods containing fiber means your blood sugar won't spike as much as fiber helps slow down sugar absorption. Additionally, the bread you would be eating otherwise does not contain the same nutritional profile that fruit would.

Vitamins and minerals are found abundantly in fruits and vegetables but not in artificial cereals and bread. If you'd like, mix your fruits with yogurt. A dose of probiotics can only help your digestion.

If you're looking to lose weight and manage your Type 2 diabetes, it's essential to limit your bread intake and get your carbs from fruits and vegetables instead.

Although managing your disease can be very challenging, Type 2 diabetes is not a condition you must just live with. You can make simple changes to your daily routine and lower both your weight and your blood sugar levels. Hang in there, the longer you do it, the easier it gets.
