7 Worst Foods With Prediabetes

Fried foods are problematic because they are loaded with fat and calories and quickly pack pounds onto your frame. Different fried foods affect your blood sugar differently, however. For example, French fries will spike your blood sugar more than fried chicken, because potatoes are largely carbohydrate while chicken contains more protein. Still, it is the preparation of these foods that is problematic.

Both chicken and potatoes can be very healthy when prepared differently. When fried, the extra fat content slows down the absorption of sugar, but doesn’t moderate it in the same way as fiber. Instead, you are likely to be hit with a huge spike at an unpredictable time. For all these reasons, fried foods are better off avoided.
