Some people had very little inflammation after eating, while others had much more.

But how exactly does food trigger inflammation? When you eat, sugar and fat make their way into your bloodstream.

In response, your body takes action to bring your blood sugar and fat levels back to normal in a controlled way.

Research shows that food-induced inflammation can increase the risks of developing heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure.

This video discusses how avocados and red wine may reduce meal-induced inflammation.

There were several strategies recommended to reduce the impact of inflammation after eating.

Control unhealthy blood fat responses by choosing whole foods that are higher in fibre and lean protein, increasing your intake of healthy omega-3 fats from sources like fish, nuts and seeds, and reducing your overall body fat.

Control unhealthy blood sugar responses by choosing foods containing complex carbohydrates and fibre, such as whole grains, fruit and vegetables, and limiting sugary processed foods and sodas.

Reduce inflammation after eating by choosing foods that are high in ‘anti-inflammatory’ bioactive molecules such as polyphenols, found in colourful fruits and vegetables and other plant-based foods.

Understand your biology and choose foods that are less likely to cause unhealthy blood fat or sugar responses after eating.
