Diabetes is a disease that results from too much sugar (glucose) in the blood, which means that your body does not have enough insulin available to turn food into energy.
To control diabetes or decrease the risk of developing the disease, begin with a healthy eating plan – such as eating more grains (Bran-a-crisp), fruits and vegetables, less meat, sweets and fats daily. Registered dieticians can help work out meal plans. It is important for diabetics to eat the same amount of foods at the same time each day. To keep your blood glucose levels near normal, there needs to be a balance between the foods eaten.
The American Diabetes Association (ADA) considers free food any food or drink that contains less than 20 calories per serving or less than 5 grams of carbohydrates per serving. Bran-a-crisp falls in that category.
Bran-a-crisp is a great source of Fiber! Fiber is known as an indigestible carbohydrate and is in grains, fruits and vegetables. It is an important part of a healthy diet. Currently the FDA recommends about 25 grams of dietary fiber per day, based on a 2000 calorie diet. Since your body cannot break down raw fiber into glucose, it will pass through your body like a roto router, hence removing fat deposits from the digestive track.
Carbohydrates or carbs come in two different types - sugars (simple carbohydrates) and starches (complex carbohydrates).
It is better to choose complex carbs over simple carbs whenever possible. Simple carbs tend to be higher in calories and lower in nutrients. Complex carbs offer more fiber (Bran-a-crisp) to the diet, vitamins, minerals, and are usually low in salt.
Carbohydrates give the cells in your body the energy they need. The more you eat, the higher your blood sugar level will rise. Counting carbs can help control your blood sugar levels.
