Overseas medical insurance policyholders who are struggling with their cholesterol should realise that consuming one single food is unlikely to reduce levels by itself, a nutrition expert has pointed out.
Linda Main, dietetic advisor at Heart UK – The Cholesterol Charity, was responding to a study by the University of Hull, which suggested small amounts of dark chocolate can bring down cholesterol levels in people with type 2 diabetes.
"Whilst it is possible for diabetics to have small amounts of foods that contain sugar as part of their normal diet, it is possible that eating high sugar foods in isolation can increase blood sugars and worsen diabetic control," she explained.
Eating foods such as dark chocolate, which is rich in polyphenols, might best be done after a meal, when the effects of the sugars will be moderated by the other food.
Other times are after exercise, when physically active individuals want to replenish their energy stores, Ms Main added.
