Chicken Shawarma is a flavorful Middle Eastern dish that many people love. However, frequent consumption of this dish can lead to a rise in blood sugar levels, even in non-diabetic individuals. The combination of grilled meat, vegetables, and sauces wrapped in bread can cause a quick spike in blood sugar followed by a drop in glucose levels, leaving you feeling tired and sluggish.

Healthy Shawarma, Happy Blood Sugar: Here’s How to Have Both!
• Try choosing whole wheat tortillas or pita bread instead of white ones. This will give you more fibre and nutrients and less refined carbs.
• Consider asking for more chicken and vegetables in your shawarma. This will fill you up and reduce the number of refined carbs.
• Use homemade or grilled chicken as a healthy alternative.
• Limit or skip sauces and dressings to avoid excess sugar and calories in your meal.

Switching to a low-carb Shawarma can prevent health problems like insulin resistance and weight gain. Making healthy Shawarma choices is important to prevent its harmful effects and stay fit in the long run. It is recommended to take a 10-minute walk after your high GI meals to help improve glucose response.
