Sugar Free Ice Cream || Diabetic Food
Everyone Loves Icecream; just bring a pack of ice cream to your home and it will take no time to get vanished from your refrigerator.
However, diabetics are the ones who are cursed and are not that privileged to enjoy ice cream to the fullest.
In this article, we will try to find if diabetics can eat ice cream.
We have always heard that diabetics should be careful of eating sugar and must keep away from foods that are high in carbohydrates.
So, can diabetics eat ice cream?
Is there any product which is less in carbohydrates?
Is sugar-free ice cream helpful?
Sadly, most of the ice creams available in the market are full of carbohydrates and can skyrocket the blood sugar of diabetics. So if you are diabetics and live in India, I felt sorry to stay that there are no ice cream choices for you in the market.
But what about “Sugar Free Ice cream”?
Are they free of carbohydrates?
Can diabetic buy it from the market?
Sadly, the “sugar-free” ice creams that are available in the market contain artificial sweeteners which can be dangerous if eaten in excess. Also, these ice creams are made up of milk, which itself contains a heavy amount of carbohydrates for diabetic metabolism.

Luckily, you can make your own ice cream in your home by using heavy cream or eggs. There are many tutorials available on Youtube which shows great recipes for making low carb ice cream.

LOW CARB CHOCOLATE ICECREAM
As far as I have seen, most of the diabetics have an attitude that they can eat anything as long as they are taking the right dose of insulin or medicine.
Well, they are right in their own way; one can definitely eat anything while compensating it with the right insulin dose.
But my experience is that it gets extremely difficult to get right blood sugar number if you are eating regular high carb diet and your chances of getting into low blood sugar level also increase.
My mother died that way!!
she used to eat everything and compensate it with insulin.
One night she miscalibrated her dose which resulted in severe hypos during her sleep and ultimately death.
If you ask my advice, I will suggest you to follow low carb diet consistently, it will get much easier to control your blood sugar and you will also feel fit and healthy.
