Best Foods For Diabetes - Foods that Raise Blood Sugar

High fiber foods – Fiber helps slow down glucose absorption.  Aim for at least 30g of high fiber foods per day from vegetables, berries, nuts, and seeds.
Chromium rich foods – Foods such as raw cheese, Brewer’s yeast, broccoli and other foods are high in chromium. Chromium deficiency can lead to poor blood sugar control.
Coconut – MCFA’s found in coconut can help balance blood sugar levels and be a preferred fuel source for your body rather than sugar.  Including coconut oil, coconut milk, coconut butter in your diet is a great way to intake MCFA’s.

Wild-caught fish – Omega-3 fats reduce inflammation and can help counteract some of the negative effects of elevated blood glucose.
Low glycemic load foods – Foods with a low glycemic value tend to not spike blood sugar as much as high glycemic foods.

Foods that Raise Blood Sugar

Sugar and grains – Refined sugar rapidly spikes blood glucose and a high grain diet also negatively affects blood sugar levels.

Soda, juice, or other sweet beverages – These forms of sugar enter the bloodstream rapidly and can cause extreme elevations in blood glucose.

Refined and processed foods – Any foods that are refined, processed, and contain no fiber generally will raise blood glucose.

Cow’s milk, especially for Type 1 – There has been research showing that children with type 1 diabetes can be sensitive to the protein in cow’s milk (A1 casein).  Use fermented goat’s milk products instead.

Alcohol – Can dangerously lower blood sugar.  Beer and sweet liquors are high in carbohydrates and should be avoided.
