9 Foods That Badly Fluctuate Blood Sugar!

1) Watermelon

Watermelon affects blood sugar more than berries and apples since it has fewer fiber and protein. That doesn't mean you should avoid it, but try adding feta cheese.

2) Potatoes

Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health says a cup of potatoes boosts blood sugar like a can of soda. Mix a small potato with fiber-rich vegetables like broccoli and bell peppers.

3) 100% juice

Certified diabetes care and education specialist Ruth Pupo Garca, RDN, CDE, explains that fructose has nothing to stop it from swiftly washing your system with sugar.

4) Sauces and condiments

Ketchup, barbeque sauce, and salad dressings can be as sweet as cookies or ice cream. Follow the label's serving sizes to avoid deceptive sugar overload.

5) Sugar-free products

Despite the fact that they don't include any added sugars, the grains and other items utilized in their production still contain carbohydrates.

6) Artificial sweetener

Using artificial sweeteners in sugar-free snacks, sodas, or coffee may increase your risk of insulin resistance, a pathway to diabetes, according to a 2020 study.

7) Kombucha

When it comes to this superdrink, says registered dietician Danielle McAvoy, RD, MSPH, reading the label is critical. Some kombucha brands are loaded with sugar.

8) Flavored yogurt

One particular pairing to avoid? Granola-topped yogurt with an added flavor. Erwine notes, "This combination may include 40 grams of added sugar.''

9) Coffee drinks

The added sugar in your speciality coffee beverages is a fast track to a blood sugar drop. A 16-ounce grande coffee shop latte, for example, may have 35 grams of added sugar."
