Bananas and coffee are popular energy-boosting foods. But they can also cause blood sugar spikes that lead to energy crashes. Bananas have a high glycemic index (GI). It means they can cause a rapid increase in blood sugar levels. Meanwhile, caffeine in coffee can stimulate the release of cortisol. It is a hormone that can elevate blood sugar levels. These changes can be problematic for individuals with prediabetes or diabetes.

How to optimize your banana consumption and coffee intake
• Pair a banana with protein-rich food such as whey protein in a smoothie for protein-rich food.
• Consider limiting banana portions to 30 grams.
• Try black coffee without sugar or milk (americano).
• Add healthy fats such as coconut oil or almond milk to your coffee.
• Consider drinking decaf coffee or switching to herbal tea in the afternoon.

High blood sugar levels can lead to a variety of health problems, including prediabetes, type 2 diabetes, and weight gain. By optimizing banana consumption and coffee intake, individuals can reduce blood sugar spikes. They will, thus, be able to achieve sustained energy levels throughout the day.
