Sugar free but with carbs foods

Hi , have one doubt in mind, can we consume sugar free foods which is having carb content (says 65 to 75 %) , is there any harm ?

I think it is not good to consume foods laced with sugar substitutes not only because of the carbohydrate load but also because one will be consuming considerable quantities of substitutes.I do consume substitutes but only two tablets a day.I hope one day I will come out of that also.

But how sugar can increase just after last bite ?

Because first bite was 20-40 minutes before and blood sugar rises within a few minutes of first bite, and of course, can continue rising for a couple of hours depending on total composition of meal.

I eat 2 chapati (30 gram) each with Sabji (leafy veg) for lunch and dinner .. will that cause spike in blood sugar

Depends on glycemic index.

Sugar is direct enemy of Diabetes and High Carb is indirect enemy of Diabetes.

U r eating sugar free food but eating high Carb so it is surely harmful.

U shud eat max.45 to 50gm Carb at a time.(ideally)

Also depends upon yr metabolism and other all parameters.
