5 Best Foods For Diabetes

5 Best Foods For Diabetes

Health Concerns: Diabetes , Type 2 Diabetes Diabetes is the 7th leading cause of death in the U.S., and doubles the risk of heart attack and stroke.1 However, type 2 diabetes is a lifestyle disease - our food choices can either prevent or promote insulin resistance and resultant diabetes. Many conventional diabetes diets rely on meat or grains as the major calorie source. However, these strategies have serious drawbacks. High-nutrient, low glycemic load (GL) foods are the optimal foods for diabetics, and these foods also help to prevent diabetes in the first place: Green vegetables: Nutrient-dense green vegetables leafy greens, cruciferous vegetables, and other green vegetables are the most important foods to focus on for diabetes prevention and reversal. Higher green vegetable consumption is associated with lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes, and among diabetics, higher green vegetable intake is associated with lower HbA1c levels.2, 3 A recent meta-analysis found that greater leafy green intake was associated with a 14 percentdecrease in risk of type 2 diabetes.4 One study reported that each daily serving of leafy greens produces a 9 percent decrease in risk.5 Non-starchy vegetables: Non-green, non-starchy vegetables like mushrooms, onions, garlic, eggplant, peppers, etc. are essential components of a diabetes prevention (or diabetes reversal) diet. These foods have almost nonexistent effects on blood glucose and are packed with fiber and phytochemicals. Beans: Beans, lentils, and other legumes are the ideal carbohydrate source. Beans are low in GL due to their moderate protein and abundant fiber and resistant starch, carbohydrates that are not broken down in the small intestine. This reduces the amount of calories that can be absorbed from beans; plus, resistan Continue reading >>

Many researches have shown that diabetes mellitus is on the rise and is becoming more common among young people. Diet plays an important role in the control of the disease and prevention of complications whether medication is required or not. Dietary management is an important step towards proper control of diabetes. Many people misunderstood dietary management of diabetes as tedious and painful dietary control. Although many individuals with diabetes know the basic principles of dietary management, they find it difficult to apply in their daily lives. In fact, diet for people with diabetes is a healthy diet. It does not have to be boring, it can be delicious, full of variety and suprising. As long as we are able to master the tricks, individuals can easily modify their diet to meet their lifestyle, work and social needs. The diet for diabetics emphasizes the even distribution of carbohydrates in main dishes, soups, fruits, and snacks. Carbohydrate is a substance which affects our blood glucose level. Apart from granulated sugar, brown sugar, and honey used in seasoning, carbohydrates also include the starch found in grains, tubers / root vegetables, and dried beans, fructose in fruits, and lactose in milk. When carbohydrate-rich foods are distributed evenly in meals in appropriate portions, a desirable blood glucose level can be maintained. Follow the recommendations and principles of the Healthy Eating Food Pyramid Eat at regular meal times and evenly distribute the portions. Avoid overeating or eating too little. People who are used to eating 3 large meals can cut down the portions they eat for meals and add 1 to 2 healthy snacks in between. Limit the intake of sugary foods. People who like sugary foods may use artificial sweeteners. Reduce the use of cornstarch to Continue reading >>

Beef And Veggie Chili Made Diabetes Friendly

Beef And Veggie Chili Made Diabetes Friendly

Chili is a food that can be laden with carbs and fat, so I wanted to tweak my recipe to make it more diabetes friendly. The main source of carbs in this recipe are beans- which are full of fiber. Fiber can help to normalize glucose levels. Also, I included cinnamon which has been shown to be beneficial in the diabetes diet. The cinnamon can be increased in the recipe based on your preferences or you could let each person add extra cinnamon to their serving if desired. I would consider this to be a mild chili and would be suitable for the whole family or those who prefer less spicy foods. You may adjust the seasonings up if you like a more spicy chili. In addition, feel free to alter the types of veggies in the ingredients to whatever lower starch veggies you may have on hand. Good additions could include zucchini, cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, etc. Calorie and carb counts are listed on the recipe for your convenience. Continue reading >>

10 Best Type 2 Diabetes Blogs Of 2018 | Everyday Health

Diabetes is one of the most stressful and serious chronic diseases a person can face, and its prevalence only continues to grow throughout the United States. Today an estimated 30.2 million American adults live with either type 1 or type 2 diabetes , and type 2 diabetes is most common of the two, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) . Commonly diagnosed among adults over age 40, a sudden type 2 diabetes diagnosis can completely rock your day-to-day life, not to mention lead you to change your priorities. From learning how to monitor blood sugar (glucose) levels to counting carb intake, type 2 diabetes isnt just a condition. Its a lifestyle. But one of the most helpful ways to develop diabetes-friendly habits is finding online support from others who share the same diagnosis. A study published in January 2012 from Diabetes Research and Clinical Practice suggests that people with type 2 diabetes were more successful in monitoring their blood sugar, lowering their blood pressure, and developing a healthy diet, among other good habits, when they attended diabetes support groups. In case youre seeking some support, too, weve rounded up some of the best type 2 diabetes blogs of the year.

Flax Pancakes | Low Carb & Diabetic Friendly

Flax Pancakes | Low Carb & Diabetic Friendly

Light, fluffy and tender Low Carb Flax Pancakes that are ridiculously simple to make. Awesome breakfast for Carb Counters & Diabetics – but great for anyone who enjoys a healthy breakfast! Pancakes. People love them. Pancake options, combinations and toppings are endless. The humble pancake has been reinvented a million different ways and people still find joy in getting creative with them. With a diabetic in the family I had to rethink my pancake recipes. I worked on some whole wheat pancakes and coconut flour pancakes, both delicious and will be shared in the future. But I knew I could do better. The flavor and textures were great – but I knew I could get lower with the carbohydrate numbers. I knew the solution as well – the almighty ground flaxseed meal. I love ground flax. It’s an ingredient I use often – it tastes great, is filling, packs some serious nutrition and it’s cheap! I add it to yogurt, smoothies, to many of my baked goodies and I love making breakfast foods with it – I make a mean flax porridge and endless flax mug muffin combinations. I knew with a little coaxing it would take on pancake form perfectly. I found a few recipes online to try and start with – like always, it’s a lot of trial and error. When I finally found something that worked I just about fell in love. Simple, to the point, and tasted like a pancake you would want to eat any given morning. You’ll definitely know that it’s not your regular all-purpose flour pancake, but man-oh-man, it sure is surprisingly close. Light, fluffy and tender – with a drizzle of syrup some might not even notice the difference. My family was in disbelief. My daughter loves them and says they remind her of “French Toast Pancakes”. Seriously, people without any dietary restrictions can a Continue reading >>

Best Websites For Diabetes Recipes

Of all of the benefits of computers and a good internet connection, perhaps the best one is access to information. In the past, the distressing diagnosis of a new condition meant relying on a doctor or nurse for information, leaving you in the dark if they were not available. Now, with just the click of a mouse or the tap of a touch screen, detailed information and help is available whenever you need it. This can be especially helpful if your condition is something that needs attention on a daily basis. Diabetes, for example, requires informed action every day and every time you open the refrigerator. If you were born with Type 1 diabetes, you may be used to dealing with monitoring blood sugar and managing insulin, but if you have developed Type 2 diabetes, or are living with someone who has recently been diagnosed with either type, things can be a bit confusing. What can you eat? What is dangerous? Where can you find diabetes recipes? Can food help manage blood sugar, and how can you get all of the nutrition you need daily? One of the best places to start for answers to these questions and a multitude of diabetes recipes is Pinterest. This online tool functions as a sort of bulletin board for websites. There are many Pinterest boards that specialize in diabetes recipes. Here are a few of our favorites. Diabetic Living is a Pinterest board created by Better Homes and Gardens magazine.

My Healthy Diabetic Meal Plan

My Healthy Diabetic Meal Plan

This healthy diabetic meal plan is a real-life example of what my daily diet typically looks like. Have you ever searched for “healthy diabetic meal plan” in Google or on some of the large diabetes website? I have, and I quickly became frustrated by articles that were too general to be useful and meal plans with boring food (or a ton of carbs). That’s why I wanted to share EXACTLY what my meal plan is like, how to cook the meals I eat, and how you can adjust my meal plan to your personal calorie needs. I want this to be a meal plan you can start following yourself tomorrow if you like! There is a link at the end of this post where you can download the meal plan as a PDF. The download also contains a table where you can see how much to make of each recipe based on your daily calorie need. Plus, it includes metric measurements for our international readers. How the plan works I prefer to eat six smaller meals throughout the day rather than the classic three big meals of breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Eating smaller meals allows me to spread out my carbs between the meals, making blood sugar control easier. I also rarely feel hungry between meals because I eat every 3-4 hours. Each meal has less than 30 grams of carbs, a good amount of protein, and some healthy fat. Because the meals are very similar in size and macronutrients, you can really eat them in the order you like. If you prefer chicken for breakfast and pancakes for dinner, I won’t hold you back (but I may give you a strange look…) If eating six daily meals doesn’t work for you because of your schedule (work, family, etc.), please don’t stress about it. You can just combine some of the meals and have four meals instead. It’s better to have a routine that works than trying to force yourself to eat s Continue reading >>
