It's Vital to Limit Your Intake of Bagels

With all the information about bagel nutrition facts,it becomes clear that it is healthy when eaten in moderation because there is a limit of how many carbs and calories to take in to maintain a healthy body weight. Here are some other reasons why it makes sense to limit your intake of bagels.

1. Too Much Carbs

You get about 66g of carbs from a 6-inch bagel. It may not look much but you should also consider the fact that you get almost no protein, fiber, or fat from that bagel. Its carbohydrate content is the same as the carb content of four slices of bread. You have to be very active throughout the day to handle this much of carb or else you will increase your risk for diabetes. It will also hamper your weight loss efforts.

2. High Glycemic Index

Eating a typical bagel is like having 16 teaspoons of sugar. Moreover, your body absorbs the starches in bagels more quickly than table sugar, which leads to an immediate increase in the levels of sugar in your blood. Bagels are high on glycemic index – the higher the index, the more it affects your blood glucose levels. Bagels have a glycemic index of 70, which is even higher than sucrose (60). Therefore, it makes sense to limit your intake of bagels to avoid diabetes and other complications.

3. Not Healthy to Begin a Day with

You should get at least 30g of protein in the morning because it helps build and maintain muscle mass and boost your metabolism. Having bagels for breakfast is not the right idea because they do not provide enough protein. Even if you use peanut butter and cream cheese, you won't get 30g of protein, which can make you hungry all day. Besides, bagels are high in sugar, carbs and calories, which is not a healthy choice for breakfast.
