3. Cakes and Pastries
Cakes and pastries are not good for diabetics as they are loaded with sugar, sodium, junky white flour and preservatives. Their dangerous combo of sugar and refined flour spikes blood sugar and promotes inflammation, which interferes with insulin’s ability to function properly.
4. Soft Drinks and Energy Drinks
Soft drinks and energy drinks are the worst type of drink for diabetics, they are loaded with calories that lead to weight gain and people who are overweight are at a higher risk of developing diabetes compared to those with the healthy weight. Cutting out soda and other energy drinks is one of the most powerful ways to control blood sugar, lose weight, and improve your health. One sugary drink a day adds 150 empty calories and 40 to 50 grams of blood-sugar-raising carbohydrates to your diet, and can lead to a weight gain of 15 pounds per year.
