The candidate of Medical Sciences, an endocrinologist at the Moscow State University clinic, Zukhra Pavlova, on her Telegram channel, focusing on numerous questions from patients, explained how to reduce the harm of eating cake if you cannot give up sweets.
It should be understood that sweet is just a high-calorie food, and after that you will want to eat even more. This is due to the effect of sugar in the pancreas, a large amount of insulin is triggered in the blood, the excess of which causes hunger, the doctor noted. Therefore, the rule here is this: you should not eat sweets in the morning (there is such a widespread opinion), but after eating, this is the most important criterion. That is, for example, after a copious dinner.
“You don’t need to eat a whole cake. If you bite off a bit and don’t drink tea so as not to take away the taste, maybe half is enough for you. But half an hour or an hour after dessert, drink more water,” the doctor said.
Also, the specialist advised eating desserts that contain protein.
“Read the label: there should be eggs, cottage cheese, maybe some other source of protein,” the endocrinologist said.
The doctor emphasized that muesli, a popular breakfast option, also looks better as a dessert than a main meal. They also have a lot of carbohydrates, and this is a high glycemic index and a load on the pancreas.
