NICE HELPFUL TIPS,

A RECENT STUDY HAS SHOWN THAT ONE CAN MANAGE SHOOTING UP OF SUGAR LEVELS IN BODY AFTER THE MEALS IN REGULATING THE WAY WE EAT OUR MEALS.

NORMALLY WE EAT CARBOHYDRATES (RICE, ROTI ETC.) ALONG WITH PROTEINS (DALS, MEAT ETC.) FOLLOWED BY FRUIT.

BY EATING FRUIT FIRST AND FOLLOWING UP WITH SOME PROTEINS AND AT THE LAST EATING CARBOHYDRATES WITH MINIMUM QUANTITY OF DAL/MEAT KEEPS SUGAR LEVELS LOWER AND UNDER CONTROL.

ONLY PROTEIN DIET, IF POSSIBLE CAN CURE SUGAR LEVELS.
