 A watermelon is equal to 8 bowls of rice? How to eat melon happily in summer


For watermelon, diabetics will worry more about it. Watermelon is so sweet that I dare not eat it. The glycemic index (GI) of watermelon is 72. It is indeed a food with high GI value, which can rapidly increase blood glucose. However, the effect of food on blood glucose depends not only on glycemic index but also on blood glucose load (GL and GI do not fully describe sugar content, and GL can more comprehensively describe the impact of food on blood glucose in human body). For example, the GI of watermelon and soda biscuit is 72, but GL of soda biscuit is about 55, and GL of watermelon is about 5, the difference of GL between them is 10 times. In other words, watermelon has little effect on blood sugar compared with biscuits. Of course, the premise that watermelon has little effect on blood sugar is not to eat more! Generally speaking, diabetics are not absolutely not allowed to eat watermelon, two or two watermelons need not worry too much.
