​Diet soda​

Studies have found that consuming zero-calorie artificial sweeteners, like the ones found in diet sodas, increases blood sugar levels over the long term.


​Quick-cooking oatmeal​

While this oatmeal may be beneficial for weight loss, since it is processed and stripped of fibre, it will lead to a sharp rise in blood sugar.


​Orange juice​

Without fibre of the fruit — that slows the breakdown of starch into glucose — consuming juice can spike your blood sugar levels.



White and whole-grain breads have a high glycemic index (GI), meaning they can quickly and steeply raise blood sugar.


​Soup from restaurant​

Most of the time, this soup will contain lots of added sugar, which can lead to blood sugar spike.



Grapes are high in sugar and relatively low in fiber, which can cause spikes in blood sugar.
