Best foods and sweetners

Hi guys

There are so many things on the internet on what is good and bad obviously low sugar and low carbs but is hi protein ok.

And also is there any sweetner out there that doesn't raise your blood sugar levels i have read some reports that stevia sweetner doesn't but not sure if thats correct as well.

Anyone having any success and which is the best way to monitor sugar levels.

Cheers

  • Chubby,

    Xylitol is used by diabetics:

    Fructose is OK too & has the advantage that it can prolong PCa cell access to hormonal vitamin D.

  • STEVIA IS A NATURAL SWEETENER. THE STEVIA PLANT IS A PLANT GROWN INDIGENIOUSLY IN SOUTH AMERICA, AND NOW IN THE U.S. THE STEVIA JUICE IS DISTILLED OUT AND CRYSTALIZED. VERY SWEET NATURAL. PRO-VIA IS A COMPANY THAT USES STEVIA EXTRACT AND MIXES IT WITH ANOTHER SUBSTANCE AND TAKE THE VERY SLIGHT "DIFFERENT" TASTE OUT OF THE PURE UNCUT VERSION OF STEVIA. THOSE THAT WANT THE PURE STEVIA DO NOT MIND THE VERY SLIGHT "DIFFERENT " TASTE. ALSO YOU CAN USE STEVIA IN THE GRANULAR FORM FOR BAKING/COOKING AND IT DOES NOT BREAK DOWN. BUY STEVIA OR PRO-VIA AT COSTCO. IT IS CHEAP ONLY $14.00 FOR 800 PACKETS. AT WHOLE FOODS/SPOUTS OR OTHER SPECIALTY STORES THE PRICE IS OUTRAGIOUS. STAY AWAY FROM BUYING IT AT THOSE PLACES.

  • Thanks guys ill have a look at these but there are different reports about stevia rasing sugar levels so unsure, xylitol looks promising

    Cheers

  • Bitter melon is also shown to reduce blood sugar levels. You can find it in asian grocery stores. Nature's way of battling diabetes.
