Clearing Up Myths About Blood Sugars After Eating

Found on: https://www.wheatbellyblog.com/2019/05/clearing-up-myths-about-blood-sugars-after-eating/

Blood sugars rise after a carbohydrate-containing meal. But SO many myths surround this phenomenon of after-meal, or “postprandial,” blood sugars.

Understand how to manage this little facet of health and you can be enormously empowered in losing weight, reversing type 2 diabetes, and gaining control over long-term health.

Among the myths I discuss in this video:

  • Check blood sugars 2 hours after a meal—absolutely the wrong way to do it for our health purposes
  • Blood sugars up to 200 mg/dl after a meal are healthy—Blood sugars this high after eating are a recipe for health disaster.
  • Low-glycemic index foods are better than high-glycemic index foods—No, there’s hardly any difference.
  • Consume carbohydrates with fats, fiber, and protein to prevent rises in blood sugar—Less bad does not necessarily mean good!
