Making dietary adjustments to control blood sugar spikes is crucial for individuals who are insulin resistant. Including certain foods in your diet such as almonds, bananas, curd made from toned milk, raisins (seedless), and walnuts are beneficial in regulating blood sugar levels. These “power foods” can help stabilise blood sugar levels and reduce the risk of complications associated with insulin resistance.

Dietary Modifications for Managing Hyperglycemia
• For a balanced snack, you can add 1 scoop (25g) of protein to your mix.
• When using bananas, try practising portion control and limiting to 25g to avoid excess carbs.
• Consider going raisin-free to prevent excessive carb intake and promote stable blood sugar levels.
• Almonds, curd, and walnuts are sources of good fats, which can help regulate blood sugar levels and provide a stable response.

Both bananas and raisins have a high glycemic index (GI), which can lead to hyperglycemia. The GI of bananas can vary depending on their ripeness, with riper bananas having a higher GI. Raisins, on the other hand, are carb-heavy and contain sucrose, glucose, and fructose, which can rapidly increase blood sugar levels, leading to hyperglycemia.
