Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth: Twix Tricks for Stable Glucose Levels

Written by Team Ultrahuman

Eating Twix, a candy bar high in sugar, can lead to a rapid spike in blood glucose levels due to the body’s release of insulin to manage the sudden influx of sugar. However, this spike is often followed by a crash in glucose levels, leaving one feeling fatigued and hungry again. Consuming large amounts of sugary or high-carbohydrate foods like Twix regularly can lead to chronic elevation of blood sugar levels, which can eventually lead to insulin resistance and metabolic disorders such as diabetes.

Stabilising your glucose levels while eating Twix
• Try to consume Twix with other foods that slow down digestion, such as protein or fibre.
• You can pair it with healthier foods. You could enjoy a mini Twix with a piece of fruit or a handful of nuts to add some protein and fibre to your snack.
• Try to avoid consuming Twix on an empty stomach, as this can cause glucose levels to spike more quickly.

When you consume foods like Twix that are high in sugar and carbohydrates, your body rapidly breaks down these molecules into glucose, causing a spike in blood sugar levels. This triggers the release of insulin from the pancreas, which helps to move glucose from the bloodstream into cells for energy or storage. It’s important to consume a balanced diet and limit the intake of sugary and high-carbohydrate foods.
