Diabetes Diet

Healthy food without sugar: a smart diet

A sugar-free diet is not only aimed at rapidly reducing weight, but also maintaining the blood glucose level in a normal state. Do not assume that eliminating only sugar from the diet, the weight and volume will start to go away.

Sugar contributes to the rapid weight gain, because it has a high glycemic index (GI), which reflects the speed of glucose splitting in the body. Also, this indicator shows the presence of glucose in other products.

If you want to bring the body into shape and adjust all the functions of the body, it is necessary not only to eliminate sugar, but also foods with a high glycemic index. Below will be described the nutrition system with this diet, presented an exemplary menu, as well as told about the benefits of the GI for the work of all body functions and effective fight against excess weight.

Principles of diet

It seemed that the principle of the diet itself can be revealed in its name, but this is absolutely not the case. The diet excludes sugar and all products that contain it - sweets, baking, drinks, alcohol (liqueurs), sauces and others.

Why does sugar contribute to weight gain? The fact is that this is a fast carbohydrate, that is, it nourishes the body with energy, but is quickly absorbed, preferably in fatty tissues. Complex carbohydrates on the contrary, long digested by the body and give a feeling of satiety.

Excluding bad carbohydrates, a person not only improves his body, but also switches to a healthy diet.

The diet completely excludes such products:

  • sugar;
  • chocolate;
  • carbonated sugary drinks;
  • syrups;
  • liqueurs;
  • low alcohol drinks;
  • baking;
  • jam;
  • condensed milk;
  • sweet yogurts.

For a faster weight loss effect, it’s worth excluding fast carbohydrates from the menu. It is quite easy to choose them - according to the glycemic index (GI).

This concept will be discussed in detail below.

The importance of GI while reducing weight

GI displays the rate of breakdown of carbohydrates in the body after consuming a particular product. The lower the score, the less glucose in the food.

A sugar-free diet coupled with a choice of GI foods gives fast and most importantly lasting results. In just two weeks you can throw up to seven pounds. At the same time, properly chosen diet prevents the development of diabetes.

It is necessary to eat foods with low GI, and occasionally it is allowed to supplement the diet with foods with average indicators, but not more than three times a week.

The scale division of the GI:

  1. 0 - 50 IU - low;
  2. 50 - 69 U - medium;
  3. over 70 U - high.

Boiled potatoes and carrots, juices and pasta should be excluded from the menu. But do not assume that the food in this diet will be monotonous.

On the contrary, the list of allowed products in each category is quite extensive.
