  • You can eat carbohydrates without increasing blood sugar levels.
  • Here is how to eat carbs in a smarter way without causing sugar spikes.

There is no perfect diet for everyone. Even then there are a few general rules if followed by everyone can go a long way in maintaining good health. Our diet mostly contains three major components that are carbohydrates, vegetables, and proteins.

Just as it is important to eat veggies and proteins for nutrition and muscle development, the inclusion of carbohydrates is equally important to get the required amount of energy in calories.

But carbohydrates have also been known to spike sugar levels in a person. While for diabetic patients cutting down on carbs is very important to maintain their blood sugar levels, even healthy people should monitor their carbohydrate levels and their impact on the body as a sudden spike in sugar levels can cause other issues like gastric problems and inflammation.

It does not necessarily mean that you should eliminate carbohydrates completely from your diet. No, rather you can use them smartly and by eating them in the right way can easily avoid the spike in blood sugar levels.

According to leading health expert, Pooja Makhija, eating the foods in the right order can make a big difference to the functioning of your hormones, aging, and weight.

The theory put forth by Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City says that if a person eats vegetables and proteins before carbohydrates, it automatically reduces insulin by 30 to 40 % and thus controls glucose spikes.

Makhija in her Instagram video clip has said that it is a way of putting some clothes on the carbohydrates so that the insulin and glucose curve is flattened using the fiber in proteins and vegetables. That is why the blood sugar levels do not get much affected despite eating carbohydrates in this way.

According to Makhija, eating in this way leads to better hormonal balance, better skin, slower aging, fewer cravings, improved fertility, reduced inflammation, and less chances of getting other diseases.
