7 Worst Foods With Prediabetes
3. White Rice, Bread, and Flour
Even food that doesn’t taste sweet can break down into sugar in your system. This is certainly the case with refined starches. Things like white flour are processed so strongly that all of the original fiber, minerals and vitamins are removed. The result is a product that is digested very quickly and gets into the bloodstream like a ton of brick.
For this reason, it is important to avoid foods like white bread, most pasta, and white rice. The best options are whole grains such as brown or wild rice, as well as whole grain bread and pasta. You still can’t go overboard with carbohydrates of any kind, but you can enjoy a normal serving of these whole grains without running your blood sugar up to speed.
