Having a carbohydrate-heavy last meal can wreak havoc on your glucose levels – that’s a given. But what’s the best alternative? While there are multiple ways to balance your diet, balancing your macronutrients is critical. Studies show that adding more protein to your last meal can ensure satiety and stabilise your blood glucose.

Staying satiated by optimizing your last meal
• Instead of having a large portion of carbohydrates, like bread or rice, add a generous helping of protein, such as eggs, meat, beans, fish, paneer, and the like.
• Opt for fibre options such as salad greens and vegetables with each meal.
• Healthy fats, such as those from nuts, signal hormones that make you feel full after a meal.

Sudden changes in blood glucose levels are known as “glycemic variability.” Protein and fibre have been found to cause the least glycemic variability. Thus, including them in your last meal helps stabilise your glucose levels and ensures higher metabolic scores.
