5. Fruit Juices
People with diabetes need to moderate their fruit juice intake as larger glasses of juice can substantially raise blood sugar levels. Regular consumption of fruit juice has been linked with an increase in type 2 diabetes risk. Compared to whole fruits and vegetables, juice doesn’t offer much fibre and are loaded with fruit sugar that cause a sharp rise in blood glucose levels. Apples, oranges, and pears all contain soluble fibre, but not when juiced.
6. French Fries
French fries are starchy vegetables that have a worst impact on your blood sugar levels. These fries soak a lot of oil and lead to excess weight gain. A small, 85-gram serving of fast-food French fries contains 33 grams of carbohydrates, including 3 grams of fiber. They are the worst form of potatoes and has a 21% increased risk of developing diabetes compared to a 14% increased risk for other forms of potato. If you really like fries, bake them yourself at home, without oil.
