It's true! You DON'T have to avoid chocolate if you have high blood sugar

by , 08 April 2014

Imagine being able to snack, guilt-free, on a piece of chocolate every now and then despite your type II diabetes. Well, it's possible! You just have to know what types of chocolate you can eat… Keep reading to find out what types of chocolate won't cause your blood sugar to go on a rollercoaster.

Some types of chocolate are healthy despite your blood sugar problems

The cacao bean contains healthy flavonoids; types of strong antioxidants that help keep inflammatory processes in your body at bay.
 
And the more natural the type of cacao you eat the better – even if you suffer from blood sugar problems!
 
WebMD says that baking cocoa and cocoa powder – the processed form of the cacao bean – are the best source of antioxidants. But you do get types of chocolate that have a high concentration of flavonoids because of their cocoa content. So they’re actually healthy for you.
 
Even though they’re healthier for you than milk chocolate or white chocolate types, you need to be careful of foods with refined sugar because it causes a spike in your blood sugar.
 
Luckily, there are types of chocolate that are suitable for diabetics too! So you can enjoy a piece of chocolate every now and then despite your type II diabetes.

Is DIABETES a BALD-FACED LIE!?
 
Imagine if you could throw away your needles, get off of insulin and never worry about blindness, amputation, or worse.

The Health Sciences Institute announces the "Medical Breakthrough of the Century"--From insulin dependent to NON DIABETIC in 6 weeks!?

So ask yourself... What's the first thing you'll eat when you're DIABETES-FREE?

Choose chocolate that contains sugar derivatives so it doesn’t spike your blood sugar
 
WedMD goes on to say that lots of manufacturers use maltitol, a replacement for sugar that doesn’t take away from the flavour of the chocolate. Essentially, there are many types of chocolate suitable for diabetics that don’t affect your blood sugar.
 
However, there are a few side effects if you eat too much! Sugar replacers tend to cause bloating, gas and diarrhoea. Also, don’t just assume that because the chocolate is sugar-free that it’s calorie-free.
 
The bottom line is that you can still enjoy chocolate if you have type II diabetes. But as with everything, enjoy in moderation!
