9 Foods You Should Never Eat If You Have Diabetes


6. Specialty Coffee Drinks

Even though a plain and simple cup of coffee packs up countless nutrients and health benefits, those sweetened and popular coffee drinks that we all consume from our favourite nationwide coffee chains contain nothing but heaps and heaps of blood sugar raising-sugar.

The immensely popular peppermint mocha from Starbucks that we all adore contains a whopping 54 grams of sugar and an even more upsetting 63 grams of carbs. And if you’re a huge fan of the caramel swirl latte from Dunkin Donuts, keep in mind that despite containing skim milk, it packs up 55 grams of sugar-loaded carbs.

Therefore, it is always advisable to enjoy all your caffeine cravings with freshly brewed and homemade, unsweetened coffee.

Coffee and Low Blood Sugar

7. Candy

Well, this should not come as a surprise at all. Candies are loaded with heaps of sugar, artificial colour and other processed ingredients that will spike your blood sugar levels and aggravate your diabetic symptoms. Candies pack up sugar in a very concentrated form, and the greater your consumption of concentrated sugar, the higher your blood sugar levels are likely to spike.

So, unless you’re picking out sugar-free gum, be sure to eliminate all your favourite candies and treats from the grocery list. You can always treat your candy cravings with homemade peanut butter and rich dark chocolate.
