Hyperglycaemia 101

Welcome to class Healthy living 101 lol๐Ÿ˜€
Topic: Hyperglycaemia

Just a reminder about why we discourage foods with high glycemic values like processed carbohydrates such as frosted cornflakes and surgary drinks.

Please take a look at the charts above.

When you take high glycemic foods, they are immediately converted to GLUCOSE in the body (you might as well just eats up a plate of sugar, right?)๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜…
This causes a massive glucose spike (HYPERGLYCAEMIA) in your blood stream. This is SOOO O O BAD for your blood vessels.
The hormone INSULIN swings into action to try and mop up all this glucose and you end up at the other end (HYPOGLYCAEMIA). This is also SOOO OOO BAD for your body and powerful cravings set in making you ravenously hungry, even though you ate not too long ago (that explains why you got so hungry just 2 hours after that massive plate of white rice, see?)๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜
Swings in BLOOD Glucose are dangerous for the body.
Aim to always eat foods with low glycemic value as they release sugar gently and keep you fuller for longer.
*Tip: Always eating a higher proportion of vegetables with any meal ensures that glucose in the meal is released slowly. So if you are having white rice (high glycemic value) ensure that you eat it with LOADS OF VEGETABLES.
