Eating sweets can cause a rapid increase in blood glucose levels. This triggers the release of insulin, a hormone responsible for transporting glucose into body cells for energy. Over time, consuming too many sweets can lead to insulin resistance and impaired glucose metabolism.

Stabilising your Glucose Level While Eating Sweets
• Choose sugar-free versions of sweets or those with natural sweeteners like Stevia, which can lower blood glucose levels.
• Consider eating a small portion of sweets after a meal that is rich in protein and low in carbs.
• Try consuming sweets loaded with nuts, as nuts slow down the absorption of sugar in the bloodstream.
• Portion control your sweet intake and enjoy them as a balanced meal.
• Incorporate exercise into your routine.

Sweets consumed are broken down into carbohydrates and then into glucose. When this enters the bloodstream, it releases insulin, rapidly increasing blood glucose. Over time, this can lead to insulin resistance, a condition where the body’s cells become less responsive to insulin. This is a condition where blood cells become less responsive to insulin, causing blood glucose levels to remain elevated.
