How To Manage Blood Sugar Levels with Chapati and Rice?

Chapati and white rice are high-glycemic index and high-glycemic load carbohydrates, which means they are digested quickly and cause a rapid spike in blood sugar levels. This can lead to postprandial hyperglycemia, where blood sugar levels remain high after meals. Eating a diet high in high-glycemic index carbohydrates can also lead to long-term hyperglycemia, which increases the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

Get the maximum out of Chapati and Rice
• Pairing chapati and rice with healthy fats and proteins can help slow digestion and stabilise blood sugar levels.
• For each meal, it is recommended to have only one grain, either rice or chapati.
• The recommended portion size for grains is about 30-40 grams.
• Opt for different types of flour for chapatis, such as almond flour, coconut flour, and other alternatives to wheat flour. 
• You can also opt for black rice or cauliflower rice instead of white rice.

Having chapati and white rice together is like a double whammy for your digestive system. Too much starch content can lead to indigestion, bloating, and other discomforts. So, avoid combining them to ensure good digestive health.
