What Can You Drink While Fasting?

What breaks a fast?

– Anything that elevates your blood sugar What drinks can elevate your blood sugar? Aspartame “Aspartame may act as a chemical stressor by increasing cortisol levels, and may induce systemic oxidative stress by producing excess free radicals, and it may also alter gut microbial activity and interfere with the N-methyl D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor, resulting in insulin deficiency or resistance”. NO: Diet drinks, sugar-free drinks Research:…

Drinks that will lower blood sugar?

1.Green Tea “In the study, mice were placed on a corn starch diet to mimic what happens when humans eat starchy foods. The mice were then fed an antioxidant found in green tea called epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG). The researchers found that, in mice given EGCG, the blood sugar spike that typically occurs after eating was significantly reduced (about 50% lower) compared to mice that were not fed the antioxidant.”


2. Black Tea “We demonstrated that black tea reduced incremental blood glucose after sucrose consumption at 60, 90 and 120 minutes compared with placebo,” wrote the authors of the study, which appears in the Asia Pacific Journal of Clinical Nutrition. That study, which involved data from 50 countries around the world, found that countries with the highest levels of black tea consumption—Ireland followed by the United Kingdom, Turkey and Russia—were associated with the lowest incidence of type 2 diabetes. The U.S. ranked close to the bottom of the list of black-tea drinking countries.


3. Oolong Tea “In conclusion, this study supports the concept that oolong tea is effective in lowering the plasma glucose levels of subjects who have type 2 diabetes and who take oral antihyperglycemic agents. Furthermore, oolong tea, in conjunction with antihyperglycemic agents, was more effective in lowering plasma glucose than were the drugs alone.”


4. Stevia “Stevia preloads significantly lowered postprandial glucose levels compared to sucrose preloads (p. less than 01), and postprandial insulin levels compared to both aspartame and sucrose preloads (p less than .05). When consuming stevia and aspartame preloads, participants did not compensate by eating more at either their lunch or dinner meal and reported similar levels of satiety compared to when they consumed the higher calorie sucrose preload” YES: Teas, stevia drinks ….but test


5. Coffee “study of more than 1100 Dutch men and women found that the risk of developing impaired glucose tolerance [33] was decreased with coffee consumption. Research:… —————————————- Dr. Mindy’s Website:
