@NIJISHA ,

Try keeping other options around him. He might like something else & slowly reduce his addiction to Marie Gold Biscuits.

A couple of option that come to mind : Roasted Peanuts, Almonds, Peanut Chaat Masala, Channa, etc.

Thanks

Apart from what Recyan said other options are walnut,paneer,raw coconut etc.fruits like orange and apple in moderation.

I have head from diabetic patients that peanut increase

BS levels.

It could be possible if they are already on comparatively high carb diet. For most people peanuts don't raise BS.

They are rich in cals.

It doesn't make any difference if one is monitoring his/her intake.

Avoid having whole wheat bread. Substitute it for brown bread. That too burn it. I burn my burn for 15 minutes. This tip I got from another diabetic. His logic was all carbs are burnt this way.

Bread itself is useless stuff for anyone whether whole wheat or made from maida.

Heating will not destroy carbs. It will only damage it.

Don't do that. It is all Carbohydrate and maida. Max 2 biscuits per day as snacks is OK but not more. Don't be taken in by marketing buzz.

See a dietician and get a chart made out for a balanced diet.

Britania - Ragi biscuits are safe. But not more than 3/day.

Hi Nijisha,

Anything in excess is not the right way!!!

As our current lifestyle doesn't allows one to takeup proper or sufficient nutritional diet, one has to compensate it with supplements. I would recommend what i have recommended for my father.

Any processed food is BAD for a diabetic. (It includes biscuits, breads, cakes, etc..). Please go for alternative less processed option (like having a chapati roll instead).

Seems this much intake is very high, just few 5-6 are ok. This much high quantity defiantly raise sugar level.
