So Let's Get You On Your Way With These 10 Questions And Answers For HOW TO EAT HEALTHY, that many Scientists have agreed upon.
1. Which of the following vegetables has the most carbohydrates in a standard serving?
2. A banana has twice as many carbohydrates as an apple.
3. Sugar-free varieties of yogurt, ice cream, and cookies are low in carbohydrates.
4. A slice of white bread and a slice of whole wheat bread have the same carbohydrate count.
5. An 8-ounce glass of skim milk has more carbs than an 8-ounce glass of whole milk.
6. People with diabetes should avoid eating carrots because they are high in carbohydrates.
7. Which of the following breakfasts is highest in carbohydrates?
8. Which of the following snacks is lowest in carbs?
9. An 8-ounce glass of orange juice has more carbohydrates than an orange.
10. Which of the following sweeteners is highest in carbohydrates?
01 -- The answer is C, corn. Corn is a starchy vegetable, which means it is higher in carbohydrates than non-starchy veggies like tomatoes, cauliflower, and spinach. Starchy vegetables, which also include peas, potatoes, and winter squash, are still good for you, but you'll need to watch your portions of these foods more carefully. A half cup of starchy vegetables has about 15 grams of carbohydrate, while the same portion of a cooked non-starchy vegetable has about 5 grams.
02 -- The answer is B, false. Some people with diabetes avoid bananas like the plague because they think they're super high in sugar, a type of carbohydrate, relative to other fruits. In reality, a medium banana and a medium apple each have around 25 grams of carbohydrate, and they both sweeten the deal with a good amount of fiber and health-boosting vitamins. Pair your preferred fruit with a tablespoon of peanut butter for a dose of healthy fat to balance out the carbs.
03 -- The answer is B, false. While sugar-free foods don't contain any sugar, they can still provide carbohydrates from other sources like starches and dairy products. Sugar is one type of carbohydrate, but it's the total carbohydrate count that determines the effect a food will have on your blood sugar. Always check the "Total Carbohydrate" line on nutrition labels to accurately track what you're eating, even when choosing sugar-free or "diabetic foods."
04 -- The answer is A, true. Both white bread and whole wheat bread contain about 15 grams carbohydrate per slice. However, because it's a whole grain, whole wheat bread is higher in fiber and other nutrients than refined white bread.
Choose whole grains whenever possible to get the most nutritional bang for your buck, but be sure to enjoy them in moderation since they're still high in carbohydrates.
05 -- The answer is B, false. Skim (fat-free) milk and whole milk both contain 12 grams carbohydrate per cup. The carbs come from lactose, a type of sugar found in some dairy products. Though all types of milk have similar carb counts, the American Diabetes Association recommends drinking skim or 1% milk because these choices are lowest in saturated fat, an unhealthy fat that raises cholesterol levels
06 -- The answer is B, false. There's a widespread belief that people with diabetes should stay away from carrots, but this is a myth you should definitely ignore. While carrots do contain more carbohydrates than some other vegetables, a half cup serving has just 6 grams. These colorful veggies also bring to the table a plentiful amount of fiber, beta carotene, and other beneficial nutrients, making them a perfectly healthy choice for people with diabetes. So don't shy away from carrots — they have a lot to offer.
07 -- The answer is C, a whole wheat bagel with 2 tablespoons peanut butter. A standard bagel from a bagel shop provides over 60 grams of carbohydrate, the equivalent of 4 slices of bread. For a more balanced, lower-carb breakfast, order your bagel "scooped" – with some of the doughy filling removed – or eat only half for a reasonable 30 grams of carbohydrates.
08 -- The answer is A, 1/4 cup of almonds. All nuts are low in carbohydrates and a smart snack choice for people with diabetes. A quarter cup of almonds – one small handful – has only 8 grams of carbs. Although nuts are extremely healthy, they're also high in calories, so it's important to stick to a small portion. If you prefer to satisfy your hunger with air-popped popcorn, yogurt, or grapes, that's fine too. All of these snack servings clock in under the suggested 30 gram carbohydrate limit and come packaged with good nutrition.
09 -- The answer is A, true. A glass of orange juice has 26 grams of carbohydrate, while a whole orange has just 18 grams.
Fresh fruit is always a better choice than juice because it is less concentrated in sugar, higher in fiber, and more filling. Instead of gulping down a glass of juice, bite into a sweet, satisfying piece of fruit.
10 -- The answer is D, all of these sweeteners contain the same amount of carbohydrates. A teaspoon of any sweetener, including sugar, maple syrup, and honey, contains roughly 15 grams of carbohydrate. That's a concentrated dose of carbs, so you'll need to
use all sweeteners sparingly to keep your blood sugar from spiking.
