HEALTHY DIABETIC DESSERTS
Life is too short to live without a good dessert. And to the surprise of many, it is possible to eat healthy diabetic desserts that taste good and are good for you. The importance of making desserts with healthy whole foods is just as important as what to leave out – the refined sugar, blood sugar spiking flours and the artificial ingredients all of which cause chronic inflammation. The healthy dessert recipes below will all have a positive impact on your insulin resistance and overall health, when consumed in moderation.
MAKING DESSERT RECIPES HEALTHY
Getting diagnosed with Type 2 or Prediabetes is a challenge for anyone. It is a time when eating habits need to be modified to control blood sugar levels. However, desserts can still be eaten while controlling your weight and blood sugar spikes. But not just any desserts can be eaten. Those listed on this page are low in sugar (read: carbohydrates) and have good fat from healing sources. The Five Hour Diabetic desserts and meal plans are based on the successful low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) nutrition model.
Sugar is the enemy of all diabetics. Unfortunately, most desserts are high in sugar and can drive diabetics to become insulin resistant. The more sugar (and/or carbs) that are consumed, the more synthetic insulin that is required by the body. The more insulin taken by a diabetic the greater the risk of weight gain. As weight gain increases the body becomes more insulin resistant. This process can spiral out of control unless sugar and carbohydrate intake is severely restricted.
The war on fat is over. The low-fat fad played a big role in our nation’s obesity epidemic. Food manufacturers cut the fat, but had to increase the sugar content to sell their products. Sugar consumption sky-rocketed in the 80’s and 90’s. The diabetes epidemic followed close behind. Fat, from good sources, can make you lose weight.
FRUIT: NATURE’S DESSERT
Fruit is defined as the fleshy part of a flower-bearing plant used to spread seeds. But we know it is as the naturally sweet produce with some of the most diverse flavors in the culinary world. And it makes some great diabetic desserts! While fruit makes its sugars naturally, it can still spike your blood sugar levels significantly. For diabetics, it is best to consume fruits in moderation and in whole format. Read more about which fruit to avoid on the food list to cure Type 2.
