Great post from @thesavvydietitian on nutritious and non nutritious carbohydrates. Carbs are needed to sustain training and healthy lifestyles. Getting the right carbs as part of a balanced diet is key. Read original comments below for More Info. #Repost@thesavvydietitian with @get_repost ・・・ Today is WORLD DIABETES DAY! I thought a discussion about CARBOHYDRATES was highly appropriate! ⠀ Now I (Savina) actually work predominantly in diabetes, so I’d like to think I know a thing or two about the topic! 🙃
I like breaking carbohydrates into the following categories: 🔸Nutritious Carbohydrates: provide the body with dietary fibre, vitamins and minerals. ⠀ 🔸Non-nutritious Carbohydrates: provide the body with nothing nutritionally but can be eaten mindfully in the right portion. (They won’t KILL YOU). ⠀ You DON’T have to avoid carbohydrates if you are diabetic ❌ INSTEAD it is more important to focus on the QUALITY and the QUANTITY that you consume. (Like a broken record, portion control, portion control, portion control!) ⠀ The amount of carbohydrate each person consumes will depend on that INDIVIDUAL. If your sedentary then you will need less. It isn’t rocket science 🚀🔬 ⠀ Does a ketogenic diet help with managing diabetes? The research says Yes. The research also says it isn’t sustainable long term (e.g the rest of your life, you can’t say it is because you haven’t lived the rest of your life, have you?). A lower carb approach as promoted by @csirogram is a far better approach.
