We do love a good infographic here at The Diabetes Diet – and this one by Zoe Harcombe caught our eye…
If you are following a low carbohydrate diet to improve your blood sugar control, then fruit is something you need to treat with caution.
You can eat fruit as part of a low-carbohydrate diet, but in moderation (one to two portions a day) and certain fruits are better than others, such as berries. It’s also best to eat fruits after you’ve eaten your meal as this will slow down the absorption of the sugar in them.
If you choose not to eat fruit at all, there are plenty of nutrients and fibre in vegetables – red peppers are an amazing source of Vitamin C, for example – so you won’t be missing out on anything.
