London: Got a craving for fast food? Make sure that you avoid coffee to wash the meal down, for a study says that it can cause a rise in your blood sugar levels.
The study is the first to examine the effects of saturated fat and caffeinated coffee on blood sugar levels using a novel fat cocktail which contains only lipids. This specially designed beverage allows researchers to accurately mimic what happens to the body when we ingest fat. For the study, healthy men drank about one gram of the fat beverage for every kilogramme of body weight for their first meal. Six hours later, they were given a second meal consisting of a sugar drink.Typically when we ingest sugar, the body produces insulin which takes the sugar out of the blood and distributes it to our muscles, said Beaudoin.
