Re: Want to understand why pizza is bad for blood sugar
There is a tremendous amount of carb in pizza. That is the source of the problem. The fat and the protein delay the peak of your glucose, but there is a very heavy carb load. Don't forget too that many sauces also contain sugar, so the pizza sauce is also a good source of carb. I did a quick check, and one medium slice of a Domino's pepperoni pizza has 25g of carb. And who can eat only one slice. Have 2 or 3 and that is 50 or 75 g of carb (the equivalent of 3 - 5 slices of bread). That's a lot of stuff that will be broken down into sugar.
Hope this answers your question a bit. It's amazing what is in the food we eat, isn't it?
