Fit Tip: Beware of Gluten-Free Products!!
That’s right! Beware of gluten-free products. Cutting gluten out and substituting it with the gluten free option may keep you from your goal especially if it involves lowering your blood sugar.
“People who give up wheat often are tempted to satisfy their cravings by buying gluten-free bread or pasta. Don’t do it. The manufacturers use substitutes such as brown rice, rice bran, rice starch, corn starch tapioca starch, which also increase glucose and cause insulin surges. Even oatmeal can cause blood sugar to skyrocket” - excerpt by William Davis, MD from “Put Down that Slice of Bread!”
So next time you reach for the gluten-free option check the ingredients label!
