Worst Breakfast Habit for High Blood Sugar

Start exploring

one of the worst breakfast mistakes someone can make is skipping protein, fiber, and healthy fats

A lot of typical breakfasts are loaded with carbohydrates and high in refined sugars, and both of which cause extreme blood sugar spikes early on in the day, suggests Julie Upton, MS, RD, CSSD

"Foods that are sugar-rich or primarily low quality processed carbs are digested & absorbed quickly which causes blood sugar levels to rise rapidly," she explains. Sugary beverages are also the worst

for raising blood sugar levels, Upton explains,"the sugar goes into the bloodstream really quickly and efficiently."When your body breaks down sugar in foods,it's absorbed into the blood as glucose &

highly increases the body's insulin. This can also cause blood sugar levels to remain high and not drop for hours after eating.Inconsistent and high blood sugar levels can have effects on your body

in the later years of life, not just your current every day."Poor eating habits long-term can decrease your body's ability to appropriately move glucose (blood sugar) from your bloodstream

into your cells for energy," says medical expert Molly Hembree, MS, RD, LD, a retail dietitian coordinator for Kroger.Skipping breakfast isn't a hopeful solution either, in fact, "going without that

morning meal can increase blood sugar after both lunch and dinner," according to the CDC.Eating too many carbs can also contribute to peaking blood sugar levels, but Upton points out,

"if you eat carbs, make them whole grains or fruits and veggies."
