Why Diabetics must Have Wheat Sprouts, Daily!

Wheat sprouts benefits for diabetics

It is very important to keep blood sugar levels in check for diabetics. As most of the grains contain high carbohydrates, diabetes patients should choose the grains in their diet carefully.

Whole wheat is one of the best grains for diabetics.

Sprouted wheat grains contain high protein and fibers. They are lower in carbohydrates and calories than the non-sprouted wheat. Wheat sprouts also have a low glycaemic index which means they metabolize slowly in our body and do not cause a sharp increase in blood sugar levels. Sprouting also increases the value of grains making them rich in vitamin c and b complex.

Moreover, wheat sprouts also maintains cholesterol and blood sugar level, the two very important factors for diabetics.

How good is it for me to go in for clear soup or salad to begin with before a meal?

SOUPs work as appetiser, liquid diet, warming during winters while providing nutrition as it is made by combining ingredients such as meat and / or vegetables with stock, juice, water, or another liquid. So it activates the salivary enzymes and digestive juices - means it is very good! SALADs on the other hand are good source of fiber, and many other minerals & vitamins along with water soluble vitamins B & C, which are destroyed during cooking by heat and exposure to sun light. Fiber in salads helps in better absorption of nutrients in intestine and also binds extra sugar, and bad fat and excretes it out of the system thus preventing diabetes, cholesterol and obesity to a great extent.

To gain weight you need to combine a balanced eating pattern with regular physical activity. You should be eating at least 6 small meals a day, rather than sticking to 3 square meals. You could divide it as 3 main meals and 3 snacks. You need to be eating every 2-3 hours. Space out snacks during the day so you don't spoil your appetite. Bread, cereal, rice, whole wheat, dalia and pasta: biscuits, and corn-bread are good sources of carbohydrates. Fruits: dried fruits, fruit nectars, and large quantities of fresh fruits vegetables: include, potatoes, peas, corn in your diet. Meat, poultry, fish, dry beans, eggs, and nuts: beef, pork, lamb, poultry, salmon, omelets, nuts, peanut butter, kidney beans, chickpeas will help you gain weight. Include dairy products like milk, yogurt, and cheese: milk, fruited yogurts, hard cheeses, ice cream, puddings, custards, milkshakes. -nuts and seeds make a healthy option for snacks. -roasted channas and peanuts are good -peanut butter on the sandwiches are a great mid-meal choice. -you must know that cereals actually contain some healthy calories. Stay hydrated: drinking plenty of water and other fluids like juices, milk, soups etc, will work in your favour. Do not drink water before a meal and in between the meal as it may make you lose your appetite, thus calorie intake suffers. Sleep: at least 8 hours of sound sleep is a must. Since your body is actually building up muscles, while you rest. Weight gainers have long term side effects.
