Toronto: Avoid coffee during a fast food meal because it could have dangerous repercussions for your wellbeing as it causes a spike in blood sugar levels."A healthy person`s blood sugar levels shoot up after eating a high-fat meal, but that spike doubles after having both a fatty meal and caffeinated coffee - jumping to levels similar to those of people at risk of diabetes," says Marie-Soleil Beaudoin from University of Guelph."The results tell us that saturated fat interferes with the body`s ability to clear sugars from the blood and, when combined with caffeinated coffee, the impact can be even worse," said Beaudoin, doctoral student who conducted the study, reports the Journal of Nutrition."Having sugar remain in our blood for long periods is unhealthy because it can take a toll on our body`s organs," adds Beaudoin, who conducted the study with Guelph professors Lindsay Robinson and Terry Graham, according to a University of Guelph statement.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.
