Dr. Clove, can I eat these staple foods?

First of all, we recommend dry rice. We recommend steamed bread for those who are used to eating pasta.

    White rice porridge: its sugar index is relatively high, because absorption is better, blood sugar rises faster after meals, and the concentration of each cooking is not well controlled, the total calorie intake is not well controlled. Noodles: the situation is similar to porridge. Coarse cereal porridge, coarse cereal rice, coarse cereal steamed bread: dietary fiber is mostly a good aspect; However, it is also starch, which does not mean that you can eat more coarse cereals than refined rice flour, and the same amount needs to be controlled. Steamed stuffed bun: breakfast can be eaten with vegetable bags. Potatoes, sweet potatoes, melons, sweet potatoes, lotus roots…: All kinds of tuber foods because of high starch content, obviously raising blood sugar, so if you eat after, rice should be eaten less.
