7 Worst Foods You Can Eat for Diabetes (+ Healthy Alternatives)
#4: Chinese food
There are four things I need to make clear about most Chinese foods out there. They are:
- High in calories
- High in fat
- High in sodium
- High in carbs
Furthermore, many Chinese dishes include ingredients that are fried, which is again a big ‘no’ for people with diabetes. Any option like orange chicken or sweet and sour meals can send your blood sugar levels through the roof, so it’s best to avoid them.
Captain’s Tip: If you’re really keen on Chinese food, you can learn to prepare healthy alternatives to your favorite dishes right at home. For example, you can opt for steaming veggies instead of frying them or use low-fat, low-sodium condiments and flavorings.
