    You are what you eat, we’ve all heard a million times. “For a long life and lithe figure, eat lean, leafy foods,” says every annoying Whole Foods shopper you’ve ever met (not to mention many scientists and respected researchers). But a recent study suggests that what you use to eat is just as crucial as what you eat — and may even help chop chronic disease risk. Enter the humble chopstick.

    Scientists at the National University of Singapore and the Clinical Nutrition Research Centre, also in Singapore, compared participants who used spoons, hands and chopsticks. Those who ate a bowl of rice with chopsticks showed a significantly lower glycemic response — meaning that their blood sugar levels rose slower — than those who ate with spoons or hands. Eating with chopsticks also lowered the rice’s glycemic index, a number representing boost in blood sugar levels after eating. Earlier studies have linked a lower glycemic response to reduced risk for Type 2 diabetes and related chronic diseases, like obesity and heart disease.

    Well I may consider using chopsticks to eat my cauliflower rice  Exclamation

    But I think most low carb diabetics would agree surely it's best to drop the big six ?
