I AM A DIABETIC, I EAT RICE DAILY

Hi, my name is … would it matter? Like Shakespeare said, ‘What’s in a name’.

Similarly, what doesn’t matter is where I come from, all I can say is, I am Indian, and I love rice. The biryani, pulao, mango rice, coriander rice, coconut rice, tamarind rice, sambar rice, sesame rice, lemon rice, curd rice, and this list can be infinite when you mix and match these ingredients.

What’s the common denominator? Rice!

Ever wondered how it feels to eliminate rice from your daily diet chart? According to India Diabetes Report 2000-2045 by International Diabetes Federation, up until 2021, about 74 Million Indians suffered with Diabetes, and this number will frivolously grow to over 124 Million by 2045. Do you know what’s worse? Approximately 53% of these people remain undiagnosed. All of whom will at some point have to give up on rice.

But why?

White rice can be pretty damaging for a diabetic. With its high Glycemic index (GI), it can cause erratic spikes in blood sugar levels. This can be compared to a sudden flood of water in a low-lying area which knows its fate every cyclone, storm, or heavy rain. It’s about knowing thy fate. The fate of diabetics after consuming white rice, as mentioned above, is evident. An inevitable risk that is difficult to avert.

Do you know what’s the alternative in such a scenario?

Saying goodbye to the illustrious list of biryani, pulao, mango rice, coriander rice, coconut rice, tamarind rice, sambar rice, sesame rice, lemon rice, curd rice, and the other relatives. Refined carbs after all!

So, embrace more whole grains. Not that you won’t love whole grains, but will you want to say goodbye to your favourite white rice?
