Limiting your sugar intake is not enough!

All carbohydrate is turned to glucose in the body. Keep your carbohydrate intake between 10 and 14 portions per day (1 portion = 10g carbohydrate), ideally 3 meals x 4 carb portions. Follow this link uk.sitestat.com/diabetes/we...

Eat low GI carbs. Follow this link glycemicindex.com/

Make up the balance of your meals with natural, additive-free, unprocessed protein and fat foods such as meat, poultry, fish, seafood, eggs, cheese, coconut oil, palm oil (not hydrogenated), olive oil, butter, ghee, duck fat, goose fat, and lard.

I think not only carbohydrate but also protein and fat also turned into glucose at the time of digestion but protein may take some 3 to 5 hours and fat may take 8 and more hours But carbohydrate digest immediately the blood sugar spikes immediately

But for old aged persons and bed ridden sick peoples cannot digest protein and fat due to their health conditions so they may take carb is main food but for diabetic they may take little quantity of food


Only about 10% of fat is turned to glucose, and about 56% of protein. If you only eat enough protein to provide what you need for growth, repair and maintenance then it can't be used for glucose.

Carbohydrate is the biggest determinant of blood glucose levels; even mainstream Diabetes UK states this to be the case.


Agreed for vegetarians proteins from pulses like whole channa and moong contain average og 60 gms of carb and good protein also if we take 50 gms of cooked these pulses how much carb utilized the body
