Why Whole Foods?
The Importance of Whole Foods It’s easy to head to a fast food restaurant or grab a packaged treat, but is this real food? Modern processing has made meals that are tasty, but they lack any real nutrition – not to mention the chemicals, colorants, and other toxic ingredients they contain that are not good for your health.
Instead, it’s important to choose whole foods. When you consume a whole food such as an apple instead of apple juice or piece of chicken instead of a nugget, you get it the way nature intended. Eating more whole foods will help anyone get healthier, but that’s especially true for diabetics.
First, whole foods contain many more nutrients when compared to processed foods. Many of these vitamins, minerals, and other phytonutrients are required in order for your body to function properly. They’re used in every process including creating hormones such as insulin.
Second, whole foods still have all of their fiber. Since it’s harder for your body to digest fiber, the amount of glucose released through digestion is slower. This means less insulin and fewer spikes in blood sugar.
Third, whole foods keep you full longer. So instead of getting hungry an hour after you eat, you’ll feel satisfied throughout the day. This leads to choosing healthier foods and eating less.
