22 Foods to Avoid with Diabetes

These top food offenders contain high amounts of fat, sodium, carbs, and calories that may increase your risk of high cholesterol, high blood pressure, heart disease, uncontrolled blood sugar, and weight gain. The good news is you can indulge in your favorite foods and still eat healthfully with our satisfying and delicious alternatives.

 

Think Twice Before Eating These Foods

At Diabetic Living, we believe that eating with diabetes doesn’t have to mean deprivation, starvation, or bland and boring foods. However, some foods really are best left on the table or in the store. Everyone — with diabetes or without — would be wise to avoid or limit the foods on this list because they are high in saturated fat, sodium, calories, or carbs, or might contain trans fats. High amounts of sodium and saturated fat can lead to heart disease, while excess sugars, high carb counts, and added calories can cause unwanted weight gain and blood sugar spikes………

 

Nachos

You walk into a restaurant and you’re feeling starved. A quick scan of the menu and there they are: nachos, one of your favorites. You order them as an appetizer and also order a meal. Unfortunately, most restaurant nacho orders equate to and often exceed an entire meal’s worth of calories, carbs, and fat. For example, a regular order of Chili’s Classic Nachos has 830 calories, 59 grams of fat, and 39 grams of carb…….

 

Coffee Drinks

A simple cup of joe with a little milk or even half-and-half can be a low-calorie beverage perfect for a person with diabetes. But many coffee-shop drinks rival decadent desserts for their high calorie, carb, and fat contents. For example, a 16-ounce Starbuck’s White Chocolate Mocha (with whipped cream and 2 percent milk) comes in at 470 calories and 63 grams of carb. Similarly, a medium Dunkaccino contains 350 calories, while the large size has almost 500 calories……

 

Biscuits and Sausage Gravy

Sometimes known as the bad boy on the breakfast buffet, traditional biscuits and gravy is indeed high in calories, fat (particularly saturated fat), and sodium. For example, the McDonald’s Biscuit and Gravy* entree has 570 calories and 13 grams of saturated fat.

That amount of saturated fat may not sound like too much, but consider that the American Diabetes Association suggests eating less than 7 percent of calories from saturated fat — and for most people, this is about 15 grams of saturated fat per day. Similarly, Bob Evans’ Sausage Gravy* recipe has 1,828 milligrams of sodium, exceeding the ADA’s recommended 1,500-milligram maximum per day……..
