We’re about to explore 5 terrible, and 5 amazing drinks. Discover what to drink, and what not to drink, for the best blood sugar control.

1) Sugar-free drinks may sound healthy, but these drinks tend to be high in fat and usually contain artificial sweeteners. Artificial sweeteners could actually worsen your insulin resistance.

2) Fruit juice looks healthy, becomes it comes from fruit. But when the liquid from fruit is removed, the high sugar content remains, while the fiber gets left behind. This means that pure fruit juice could skyrocket your blood sugar only minutes after drinking.

3) Iced coffee drinks should, in theory, be healthy – if they are simply black coffee with ice. But store-bought and pre-packaged iced coffee drinks are usually loaded with cream, sugar, and other unhealthy chemicals. Many of these drinks to be over 500 calories.

4) Energy and sports drinks seem to work well for athletes, but that’s because they were DESIGNED for athletes. If you’re not getting a lot of physical activity, the high sugar and caffeine content won’t do you any favors.

5) Soft drinks are filled to the brim with sugar. But even if you opt for sugar-free versions, they’ll still be loaded with artificial sweeteners and other unhealthy additives and preservatives.

6) Pomegranate juice is actually one fruit juice which could help you manage your fasting glucose levels. Pomegranates contain unique polyphenol antioxidants which have been shown to reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease.

7) Coffee, on its own, contains an array of beneficial nutrients, including vitamin B2. This antioxidant has been shown to fight oxidative damage.

8) Vegetable smoothies will keep the fiber content, along with the vast variety of nutrients contained within veggies. Try celery, spinach, or carrot smoothies. You can add some flavor by including a small helping of fruit.

9) Many varieties of tea can supply a ton of positive health. Teas contain powerful antioxidant polyphenols, and have been shown to reduce insulin resistance.

10) Plain old water is still the best drink in the world. It’s the best option to keep you hydrated, and when you drink enough water, your body can eliminate excess glucose through your urine.
