SLOW RELEASE CARBOHYDRATES WITH MOST OUR MEALS
Most breads, white rice, breakfast cereals, white potatoes, soft drinks and baked goods contain carbohydrates that are quickly broken down into sugars. Quick-release carbs cause a sharp and rapid rise in your blood sugar levels, increasing your risk of putting on weight and getting type 2 diabetes. Slow-release carbs on the other hand are healthier options to keep your blood sugar levels more stable between meals and help you feel more satiated so that you can reach and maintain a healthy weight and prevent chronic diseases.
Overall, unless your diet is sharply carb-restricted, your best bet is simply to skew each meal toward healthy, unprocessed carb-containing foods such as fruits, vegetables, legumes and whole grains – along with proteins and healthy fats. Your carb count, and your ratio of slow to fast carbs, will usually fall into line as a result.
Slow-release carbohydrate foods -- carbs that are absorbed slowly and keep your blood sugar steady -- keep hunger pangs away and help prevent chronic diseases, such as Type 2 diabetes and heart disease. By contrast, carbohydrates that are absorbed quickly -- such as white bread, hamburger buns, cookies, donuts, candy, french fries and most breakfast cereals -- are absorbed rapidly, causing sharp spikes and dips in your blood sugar that make you hungry a short time later and set you up for health problems. Feel better and stay healthier with slow-release carbohydrates.
Your body digests whole grains more slowly than refined grains, which have been stripped of their bran and germ, and thus fiber, and are absorbed almost as quickly as pure glucose. Whole grains -- barley, oats, brown rice, wild rice and bulgur -- and products made from whole grains, such as whole-wheat breads, bagels, pasta and crackers, and 100 percent bran cereal -- provide a slower, more sustained source of energy that keeps your blood sugar stable. Quickly absorbed, refined carbohydrates are linked to Type 2 diabetes, heart disease and weight gain, notes the Harvard School of Public Health. Whole grains may decrease your risk of these conditions.
Fruits & Vegetables
Most fruits and vegetables are slowly absorbed carbohydrates that have minimal effect on your blood sugar and insulin levels. Eat dark green vegetables, such as spinach, kale and broccoli; and orange vegetables, such as squash, pumpkin, sweet potatoes and winter squash. Vegetables that are quickly absorbed include white potatoes, corn and parsnips. Whole fruits are preferable to fruit juice, which is absorbed rapidly due to its lack of fiber.
Not only are beans an excellent source of slow-release carbohydrates, they're also a good source of protein and fiber, which slow the digestive process further. Beans -- like whole grains, and most fruits and vegetables -- have a low glycemic index, a measurement that gives information on how a food affects blood sugar and insulin levels. Include lentils, garbanzo beans, black beans, pinto beans and other beans in your diet for sustained energy and reduced risk of chronic diseases like Type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
