Everyone knows that diabetics should avoid eating sugar. But did you know that carbohydrates can raise blood sugar levels more than sugar?

Studies have shown that cereals, breads, and cereals are high-glycemic food sources. Being such, they are converted to glucose too quickly, raising blood sugar levels. Some diabetics, or those at risk for diabetes, try to “avoid” this trend by switching to “healthier” alternatives, such as whole wheat bread.

Unfortunately, whole wheat bread has also been found to be just as likely to increase blood sugar levels as white bread. In reality, there is no such thing as a “low glycemic” grain product – if you have carbohydrates (especially refined ones), you pose a risk of diabetes.

These findings reinforce the fact that we must return to an organic plant-based diet and ignore the grain-based diet suggested by the faulty food pyramid. Since people followed the advice of the food pyramid and consumed 6 to 11 servings of carbohydrates a day, the rates of obesity, heart disease and diabetes began to increase year after year after year!

This is where organic fruits and vegetables should come in. It is also a good idea to switch from pharmaceutical supplements to natural ones, such as the Acai berry. Acai has protein, antioxidants, and fiber that help you eat fewer carbohydrates without compromising your energy levels for the day.

Therefore, limit your consumption of rice, pasta, junk food and bread, and start consuming brightly colored fruits and brightly colored vegetables. And don’t forget an Acai supplement either.
