Many of us here have achieved lower PP levels by reducing the type of food that causes it to rise in the first place - carbohydrates.

From what you say, it appears that you have a glucose meter and are checking your blood glucose (BG) regularly. http://www.diabetesforum.com/diabete...ng-method.html is an excellent way to determine what exactly the foods you are eating are doing to your BG. It is the method most of us here do.

I understand that India has different foods than the Western countries, but what is common to both is a reliance on carbohydrates - rice, wheat, potatoes, etc. As diabetics we just cannot base our meals on these starches but must look for our nutrition in other foods, such as more vegetables that aren't high in carbs. And what makes this way of eating more successful is to greatly increase fats in our diet. Fats don't affect blood sugar at all, they are filling and make foods satisfying.

In India I believe you have coconut oil and ghee which are good fats. So also is olive oil and avocados, if you can get them.

I have found recipes for many foods by doing an internet search for "low-carb _____ " and have found low-carb recipes for substitutes for traditional Indian foods.

Added:
I just did a search on "eating low carb in India" and several sites came up.

Our simple answer as to 'how' to stop your blood sugar from spiking at 2 hours after eating, is reduce your carb intake! I understand that you may have limited choices in India, but from others I have read on this website who also were from India, it still is possible.

Remember that our method is to dramatically reduce eating carbs (e.g. rice, breads, fruits, etc.) and replace that by eating more fats e.g. (Olive oils in salads or on other foods you like, Heavy Cream in tea, Avocados, ect.).

By increasing your fats, your body will replace the carbs for energy with fats for energy....that's what we do!

Good Luck

My eateries are as follows:

Breakfast: milk/oats/walnuts/turmeric/APRICOT

https://www.amazon.in/Quaker-Oats-1-...inhydr18418-21


Lunch: for 5 days in office

1) Roti/Chapati(made from whole grain wheat dust)

https://www.indiamart.com/sri-ganesh.../products.html

2)veggies like cabbage, cauliflower, soyabeans, gourds

For SAT & SUN:

Brown rice, some chicken with stew & veggies.


Evening snacks: chickpeas,peanuts,cucumber,tomato

Dinner: Roti and veggies from Monday to Friday and Brown Rice in Sat & Sun


Anything and everything contains carbohydrate here in india even if they are sugarfree.

What is your suggestion?

Eating low carb requires a person to look at meals in a different way. Instead of building a meal around foods that contain carbs, it it helpful to start with the lower-carb foods.

If you eat dairy, then the low-carb choices would be cheese, cream cheese and cream (if you like milk, dilute cream with water).

Since you eat fish and chicken, start making your meals with these, rather than with breads. Cook them in butter/ghee and other fats. Just don't have rice with the meal.

The vegetables you mention are all good low-carb choices, with the exception of tomato which most diabetics need to limit to a small amount at a time.

I think you have the resources to make good low-carb meals.

Did you do a search on "eating low carb in India" yet? You may find many more ideas from those sites.

In fact very few foods do not contain some carbs! But diabetics must choose to eat foods with low carbs. I am sure it is more difficult in India, but still possible...Your breakfast as an example...

Breakfast: milk/oats/walnuts/turmeric/APRICOT...Red are high carbs...

Consider adding some chicken or fish. Also, add vegetables (cabbage, green beans, squash, and avocados) to most meals. My typical meals include meats, eggs, and vegetables, Using heavy cream if you can get it....is ok in tea or coffee, but all other forms of milk have milk sugar and are high carb. I also use almonds, pecans or walnuts to add some texture and flavor to many meals...Of course rice is very high in carbs.....

Continuing to eat high carb foods will lead to diabetic complications....and destroy your health over time....it is difficult to find and change to foods that are safe for you, but not doing this is very dangerous....

Good Luck

I would suggest you to understand that its the carbs that is causing all the trouble.
I will suggest you to shun all carb rich foods.
Carb rich foods are not the only ones that are sweet, the foods that contains wheat, rice or infact any form of grains are high in carbs.

There are many app available which can show you carb content in any food (i use healthifyme)

if you want to understand in detail, i think the following article can help you alot.
