Subjects maintain normal blood sugar levels after eating IsaLean Bars (Chocolate Decadence and Lemon Passion Crunch flavors). Fans of Isagenix IsaLean® Bars will find enjoying them all the sweeter now that a new study has shown that eating them won’t spike blood sugar levels. Whether customers have preference for Lemon Passion Crunch or Chocolate Decadence flavors, they can rest assured with clinical findings showing that both meal-replacement bars maintain normal levels of plasma glucose and have a statistically significantly lower glycemic effect when compared to standard controls. In the study, Brigham Young University researchers tested blood glucose response for each of the bars and white bread (standard control) in 11 adult subjects (five men and six women)—for this type of testing, experimentation is typically performed on 10 or more subjects with standard protocols. The scientists took blood samples  before subjects ate the test food and then at 15, 30, 45, 60, 90 and 120 minutes after eating.
These results came from healthy men and women and are not applicable to people with type 2 diabetes, who should continue to monitor blood sugar with any food eaten. Meal-replacement bars have gained popularity as a convenient way to assist in weight management. IsaLean Bars represent a convenient, high-protein meal replacement designed to meet weight management and nutrition goals.
The bars are high in whey protein, offer a balanced amount of fats and carbohydrates, and provide daily requirements of vitamins and minerals. The high-protein bars also present multiple benefits because of impact on satiety as well as muscle protein synthesis—aiding weight management and helping to maintain or increase muscle mass with age. World Health Organization statistics show more than 1 billion people are overweight and at least 300 million of those are clinically obese.

Carbohydrates (car-bow-HIGH-drates) are nutrients in food that turn into glucose (sugar) after being digested to provide energy to the body. Below are some basic guidelines for counting and regulating the amount of carbohydrate in the diet.
Limit high-fat protein sources, including highly marbled beef, regular cheese, hot dogs, and processed lunchmeats (such as bologna and salami). Rather than frying, prepare foods by baking, broiling, grilling, or steaming.
Fat does not raise your blood glucose, but like protein, can keep the blood glucose elevated if eaten in excess. You can eat unlimited amounts of food and drinks that have zero carbohydrate and zero calories.
People with diabetes should eat the same moderate amount of total carbohydrate at about the same time every day.


Labels on many supermarket foods read “low carbohydrate” (low carb). Before you buy a low-carbohydrate food, be sure to look at the nutrition label.
Some low-carbohydrate products may have higher amounts of other items such as calories, fat and soduim than the regular products. Review this sample nutrition label to help you understand more about counting carbohydrates. Look at the total carbohydrate number. This shows the amount of carbohydrate in 1 serving of this food. For help in finding a doctor or health service that suits your needs, call the UPMC Referral Service at 412-647-UPMC (8762) or 1-800-533-UPMC (8762). For UPMC Mercy Patients: As a Catholic hospital, UPMC Mercy abides by the Ethical and Religious Directives for Catholic Health Care Services, as determined by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
Probably you are thinking, then what to eat for diabetic if these products, foods are not allowed? Though required daily calories amount may vary upon patients body weight, age, sex, activity – it is recommended for type 2 diabetic patients to take 1400-1900 calories diet per day in order to control weight. Eating foods balanced in protein, fats, fiber and complex carbohydrates are considered a better approach to maintain blood sugar levels (1 & 2). Each participant acted as his or her own control by testing the bread and the bars in a random order.
The health-food bar market reached $5 billion in 2010 and retail sales are predicted to increase 10 percent per year over the next five years. The combination of carbohydrates doesn’t lead to elevated blood glucose levels, as the BYU study has shown.
In the United States, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has reported that more than one third of adults (more than 72 million people), and, sadly, roughly one out of every seven children are obese. With regular articles from our Research and Science Team and the Scientific Advisory Board, you can stay abreast of the latest evidence-based updates about weight management, healthy aging, and energy and performance. People with diabetes should have a moderate amount of carbohydrate at each meal, rather than avoiding them completely. If you eat 2 servings, you must double the number of carbohydrate grams. Dietary fiber, sugar, and sugar alcohols are indented under the total carbohydrate count because they are part of the total carbohydrate amount.
To find a dietitian in your area, call the UPMC Referral Service at 412-647-UPMC (8762) or 1-800-533-UPMC (8762), then select option 1. UPMC policy prohibits discrimination or harassment on the basis of race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, age, sex, genetics, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, familial status, disability, veteran status, or any other legally protected group status. Glucose, fructose and other ingredients that end with -ol- or -ose-, as those are various types of carbohydrates.
Beans, peas, parsnips, carrots, potatoes – all vegetables that has a large amount of carbohydrates and starch in it. Fresh fruit juices – as they contain lots of carbohydrates, though diluted with no less than 3 parts of water it can be consumed.


Peaches, apple, lime, grapefruit, though diabetic diet requires fruit and vegetable to divide at least for four times through the day, as it helps to control your blood sugar levels. Instead of processed food try to take whole grain, whole wheat spaghetti along with brown rice.

Eating the right amount of carbohydrate at each meal will help to keep blood glucose in a healthy range. It is important that you limit the amount of fat you eat and choose healthy fats most often. For example, if 1 piece of sugar-free hard candy contains 5 grams of total carbohydrate and you eat 3 pieces at a time, you ate 15 grams of total carbohydrate.
Remember, there are no government guidelines for low-carbohydrate and net-carbohydrate products. They also may have a laxative effect and cause bloating, gas, and diarrhea in some individuals.
Further, UPMC will continue to support and promote equal employment opportunity, human dignity, and racial, ethnic, and cultural diversity. Normally it is quite difficult to avoid sugar, thus gradual decrease of sugar is recommended. Continental dark chocolate having no less than 70 percent cocoa solids can be consumed, though remember if sugar is the first ingredient named in chocolate, then try to not eat that chocolate. It is cereals, nuts, seeds, vegetables, fruits, pulses, as all this food helps to lower glucose level as well as blood cholesterol. Interesting fact: Indian and Pakistani people really like white rice, thus indian diabetic patients should avoid white rice as often as possible.
It means that diabetic patient should take at least 300 grams of carbohydrates daily per your diabetic diet plan. In general, women should have 3 to 4 carb choices at each meal and men should have 4 to 5 carb choices at each meal.
Example: 5 large pretzels contain 26 grams of total carbohydrate, which equals 2 carbohydrate choices.
This policy applies to admissions, employment, and access to and treatment in UPMC programs and activities.
Tea and coffee should not be drank too often and only with small amount of sugar to enhance the taste. A healthy diet for people with diabetes would be to limit sodium to less than 1,500 mg daily.
