According to nutritionist Elena Solomatina, addiction to flour contributes to the appearance of excess weight and the development of insulin resistance.

Doctor Solomatina advised Russians how you can eat products made from premium white wheat flour less frequently.

“Products made from premium flour include white bread, rolls, cookies and pasta made from soft wheat,” the expert clarified in an interview with Moskva 24.
The specialist noted that such food is a source of large amounts of sugar and simple carbohydrates, which are absorbed very quickly and sharply increase blood glucose levels in a short time. The body's response is an intense release of insulin, and if a person often eats flour products, he runs the risk of “earning” insulin resistance, that is, addiction to the secreted insulin. In this case, the body becomes susceptible to developing type 2 diabetes.

In addition, simple carbohydrates consumed with white flour products quickly create an energy surplus, which causes fat deposition and increases body weight. In addition, the increased concentration of glucose in the blood after consuming them negatively affects the condition of blood vessels, which allows cholesterol plaques to appear in them. The associated development of atherosclerosis is a direct threat to the health of the heart and brain.

Thus, doctor Solomatina stated: avoiding products made from white flour reduces the risk of diabetes and heart disease.

“Refusal products made from premium flour is the prevention of cardiovascular failure, hypertension, type 2 diabetes and retinal degeneration that develops against it,” the doctor informed.
Earlier, the portal wrote that sugar, according to doctors, is one of the most harmful products for blood vessels.
