Mixing Carbs: The Secret to Steady Blood Sugar Levels

Carbohydrates are an important part of our diet. They provide our bodies with energy. But, not all carbohydrates are equal. Some break down quickly and lead to a rapid rise in blood sugar levels. Other carbohydrates break down slowly and provide a more measured release of energy. Mixing different carbohydrate sources can help slow their breakdown.

How to improve glucose levels by mixing carbs
• To slow down glucose absorption, you can combine high-fibre carbs (like whole grains and vegetables) with low-fibre carbs (like fruit and white rice).
• Consider including protein and healthy fats in your meals, as they can also help maintain healthy glucose levels.
• Try avoiding carbs with a high glycemic index (such as sugar and refined grains), which can increase blood sugar levels.

Carbohydrates are broken down into glucose, which is then used by cells for energy. But, consuming too many or even the wrong types of carbohydrates can increase blood sugar levels. This can lead to various health problems. Mixing carbs can help improve your health. It can also reduce the risk of diabetes and other health problems.
