TOP 10 Foods that do NOT affect the blood sugar

August 16, 2019

Hey! In this video, I’m going
to show you the Top 10 foods that does NOT affect your blood sugar. These are both healthy,
beneficial and of course perfect for people with both types of Diabetes.
Before we get started I just wanted to share
a quick little tip for you who are just starting out with eating healthier and different and
that have a hard time getting rid of all the carbohydrates. A great thing with protein
and fat is that it slows down the conversion from food to blood sugar which means if you’re
still eating carbohydrates -even though I recommend trying to get rid of as much as
possible- you can add fat and protein to your meal to slow down the absorption of the carbohydrates
which means you will not get as strong peak in the blood sugar as you would have with
the carbohydrates alone.
Now that said, it still will affect your blood sugar but just for you who hasn’t started
out or have a 100% commitment, it’s a step in the right direction.

NOW, let’s look at those Top 10 foods that does not affect the blood sugar. Bare in mind
that this list has no specific order and the first or last one doesn’t mean they’re the
best or healthiest.

Ok, so number 1: Onion & Garlic. Is very healthy and beneficial
and is actually the food that has less pesticides and chemicals on them of the conventional
food (if you feel that organic is too expensive) which makes it cheaper and easier to buy since
it’s not that big difference between the organic ones.
So, garlic is really awesome for TONS of stuff.
It helps for example with: High cholesterol
Poor digestion Diabetes and Blood sugar of course
Yeast infections Boost immune system
Increase absorption of iron and zinc Antioxidants
Cold and flu It’s anti-fungal
Parasites Allergies and so on.
Back in the ol’ days, I’m talking like hundreds
and thousands of years, this was used a lot by doctors since already then, they knew how
great garlic was.
Onions are a very good source of vitamin C, B6, biotin, chromium, calcium and dietary
fiber. In addition, they contain good amounts of folic acid and vitamin B1 and K.
It’s also a great help for the liver.
Number 2:
Leafy greens. This is the most important part of my meals.
Leafy greens are so healthy, full of micronutrients like vitamins and minerals, are very beneficial
for the body in so many ways and they are alkaline which supports a tremendous amount
of health, especially in this world where almost all “normal” food is so acid for our
bodies. This is just pure superfood with no effect
on the blood sugar.
Number 3: Fatty seeds.
Healthy seeds full of healthy fats like flaxseeds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, chia seeds
and alfalfa seeds are super healthy and are very high in fat and protein and have either
no carbs or low amount and almost exclusively all of those carbs are dietary fiber and according
to my experiences with seeds and also according to which is a huge
database with food and their nutrition, these seeds have no Glycemic load which is a number
that measure how much it effects the blood sugar.
So next time you put cereal in your yogurt,
replace it with some great seeds or just eat them as they are as snacks.
Number 4:
Avocados. This is truly my candy throughout the day! It’s delicious, can be used in many
ways and easy to prepare and eat, have as a snack or whatever you want. Avocado is full
of healthy vitamins and minerals as well and also have a great amount of the healthy fatty
acids Omega 3 and 6. It’s also full of Vitamin A, C, E, K, B6,
Folate and it’s also anti-inflammatory.
Ok, so number 5: Coconut. If you eat the raw meat, cocoflakes
or the coconut oil, you will not have to worry about your blood sugar since Coconut has a
high amount of fat and most of the carbs are dietary fiber and it has basically no Glycemic
load at all. I always use coconut oil if I cook something (which is very rarely) and
I also just eat it as it is or use it for baking raw desserts of some sort.
Number 6 is nuts.
Nuts like walnuts, hazelnuts, peanuts or almonds are super high in healthy fats and proteins
as well, barely any carb (which again is just dietary fiber) and is very anti-inflammatory.
Short said: Nuts are healthy, great snacks that doesn’t mess with your blood sugar. Just
be little more careful with the cashew as they tend to have more carbs but again, it’s
nothing like a glass of juice or a snickers bar but I’ve seen a little raise in my blood
sugar with cashew when I really go nuts and eat like 100-200grams of it which makes sense
since the Glycemic load is 11 per 100gram and over 15 it is classified as affecting
the blood sugar so it’s close but the other ones are no problem.
Number 7:
Herbs. Basil, cilantro, oregano, mint, lemon balm and so on are very good because they
have basically no macronutrients, which is the proteins, the fat and the carbs, but instead
a lot of vitamins and minerals so they have no effect on the blood sugar but gives great
taste to food and have healthy vitamins and minerals and a lot of cleansing and healing
properties. Make sure they are organic and fresh or do as I do, plant your own!
Number 8:
Eggs. A great source of the very essential vitamin B12 and good amount of protein and
fat. No effect on the blood sugar and a great way to start the day and they’re easy to cook
and cheap as well. What not to love? Just be careful not to eat too much since eggs
are a dairy product which makes our body acids so compensate with an avocado and some salad
to it, that’s what I do for breakfast and I love it!
Number 9:
Again, this is top 10 foods that doesn’t affect the blood sugar and even though you might
know I promote a very high alkaline diet, for some people or in some times, you have
to use some dairy products and that’s ok, as long as it’s not more than the alkaline
food and not too often. So here goes number 9 which is Butter and cheese. And I’m talking
real real butter without any additives, that is high in fat and is just.. pure butter!
Cheese is harder to mess around with but even though, the animals that the cheese is made
from can have been treated badly and been fed growth hormones which of course affects
the outcome of the cheese products so make sure it’s organic here as well.
the last but not least, number 10 is:
Oils. Oils are 100% fat and you got to be very delicate
and careful with what you choose. I only use organic coconut oil, organic cold pressed
extra virgin olive oil or organic hemp oil. I always make sure that it’s organic, high
quality and nothing bogus in it because using normal conventional sunflower oil, or palm
oil and all those other mixes are just pure crap and bottles of chemical shit storm, frankly
But the good ones are fantastic to have on your food to spice up the flavor or to cook
if you have to and of course my favorite, make your own pesto!
So now, you’ve been going through the Top
10 Foods that doesn’t affect the blood sugar and you also saw what health benefits and
properties they have. So a quick recap:
Number 1: Onions and garlic – great body cleansers in
so many ways
Number 2: Leafy greens, these are just made for everything
and is truly superfood.
Number 3: Seeds. Can be used in several ways, full of
great fats and vitamins & minerals.
Number 4: Avocado. My personal favorite that is the
perfect snack or side dish to any meal
Number 5: Coconut. Full of fat, delicious flavor and
comes in many ways and forms like oils, fat, flakes, flour and so on.
Number 6:
Nuts. Great snack and replacement for candy and great to have instead of cereal or granola
in your yogurt or milk.
Number 7: Herbs. Mostly full of micronutrients instead
of protein, fats and carbs and of course spice up the food and make it more alive and has
many ways to benefit the body and your overall health.
Number 8:
Eggs. Perfect for breakfast, a lot of uses in baking and cooking and a great source of
the essential Vitamin B12.
Number 9: Butter and cheese. Acid for the body so keep
it in moderation but as you know has many uses in our lives and cheese is delicious
to frikkin’ everything in my opinion. Full of fat, no problems for the blood sugar.
And number 10 which is oils that we also have
great use for in our kitchen.
And as I always recommend, keep everything you buy as local, as clean from chemicals
and as organic as possible and even consider growing your own in your garden, it’s really
not that hard and I will make a video about that in the future but until then, Google
can offer you
a lot of help.
I hope this video gave you a lot of value and help and if it did, please like the video

    I am insulin dependent. So I keep a sharp eye on what I eat, and what effect it has on my BG level. I can eat watermelon, cantaloupe, and honeydew melon all day long, and it does not affect my BG level. Strawberries are the same. However, one banana, and my BG level spikes quickly and stays there for a while. All this to say, don't discount all sweet fruits. If you want to eat any food in particular… Substitute a meal. Lunch is best for this. Test your BG. Eat ONLY that food. Test again an hour later, and again an hour and a half later. You'll have a pretty good idea what that particular food does to you.

    What's wrong with eating eggs? How about the torture of keeping chickens and small areas, debeaking them without painkillers, killing all the day old baby chicks when they are male because they are useless. No thanks to the eggs. Slimy gross disgusting balls of torture. Unless you have your own chickens running free and happy on a good diet, 90% of all eggs are induced by cruelty. Not to mention they don't feed chickens a good diet which goes right into the eggs. Try to eat dairy free animal free products. Cruelty-free and healthier.

    High proteins, high fiber, and low carb diet can help control sugar. Over a longer period the better. If good enough, a diabetic can work in a occasional cheat with that type long term diet with no sugar spike. When I'm experiencing a bit of a sugar spike then onions, garlic, bell peppers, cabbage, greens/spinach/kale, salad, and beans for high protein. Sugar drops like a rock to more normal levels.

    Like most of these sites, this is just a bunch of crap. First of all, anything you eat affects your glandular system in some way and everything you eat has some kind of impact on your diabetic condition. That is a fact of the basic chemistry of the human body. Then, like any other aspect of a person, diabetes and what affects it and how to handle it is totally individual and no list of 10 is accurate for all, or even most. It is a disservice to those who are just beginning to handle living with the condition to post these fallacies. I was diagnosed 12 years ago with Type 2 diabetes although it is likely that it had been affecting me quite a while before that. At first I took an oral medication but after a year and a half that medication led to an acute episode of kidney failure. At that point, my regular doctor and I made an agreement about allowing me to handle the condition without medication. I have now been doing that for almost a decade and my A1C is usually between 6.1 and 6.3 when it is taken every three months. I am very careful about my diet and am fortunate that I am a very good cook. However, I never gave up any food completely. I learned how to cook in ways less stressful to my system; I exercise regularly and lost 70 pounds in the first year after going off meds; I get enough sleep which is very important. This is what works for me and I had to find it on my own with the help of a very fine physician who remains willing to risk with me the non-medical management of my condition. Anyone with diabetes or even with genetic potential for it should work closely with a good personal physician to find what works best that themselves not try to manage by reading these foolish lists of ten postings.

    From my own recent experience, do this and your cholesterol will normalise from 6.7 to 5.3 in 2 – 3 weeks. I had been in the high 6 range for > 10 years, and so pleased that I’ve finally made it.

    Eat a very low carb (no refined carb food) meal for dinner, bitter melon juice and 1 or 2 boiled eggs for breakfast, small quantity of mixed nuts for < 3 snacks, drink plenty of water / 3 table spoons of apple cider vinegar. No alcoholic drinks …. no refined food or juices.

    This means intermittent fasting with at least 12 hours between eating main meals.

    I lost 5 kg from 80 kg, and most encouraging are the feelings of mental alertness and regaining physical strength. Don’t try to normalise cholesterol by eating this & that, taking medicine or supplement.
