Shopping List For Diabetics

Control Type 2 Diabetes, Shed Fat Our Shopping List for Diabetics is based on the Pritikin Eating Plan, regarded worldwide as among the healthiest diets on earth. The Pritikin Program has been documented in more than 100 studies in peer-reviewed medical journals to prevent and control many of our nation’s leading killers – heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, metabolic syndrome, and obesity as well as type 2 diabetes. If you’ve recently been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, pay special attention. Research on newly diagnosed type 2 diabetics coming to the Pritikin Longevity Center illustrate how profoundly beneficial early intervention can be. Scientists from UCLA followed 243 people in the early stages of diabetes (not yet on medications). Within three weeks of coming to Pritikin, their fasting blood sugar (glucose) plummeted on average from 160 to 124. Research has also found that the Pritikin Program reduces fasting insulin by 25 to 40%. Shopping List for Diabetics – More Features Here’s another big plus to our Shopping List for Diabetics.

    I hate vegetables!

    I have type 2 and am very bored with my diet! I cannot stand vegetables I can't even choke them down the only one I like is corn but it's the worst one for a diabetic. I'm a very plane jane eater I don't a lot of fancy stuff and hate onions. Because there are very few things I like that I can have I repeat meals a lot and it's beginning to drive me crazy! Please let me know if anyone has any suggestions.
    Thanks!

    I know you posted this question about 6 years ago, but I felt I had to comment anyway. lol
    I'm exactly the same way. It seems like the only vegetables I do like are spinach, broccoli, corn, peas, green beans, edamame, and sometimes asparagus. And, just like you said, corn (and peas) are not very good for a diabetic. So it doesn't leave me a lot of options, as far as vegetables go, to prepare for dinner.
    I think the most helpful thing I can suggest is getting one of those blenders that pulverize your ingredients (I actually got a Ninja blender that was on sale for a great price). Making yourself a smoothie that combines fruits and vegetables is a wonderful way to consume your recommended portions. This is also a great opportunity to throw in vegetable ingredients that you normally wouldn't eat on their own. I start off with a 16 or 32 oz. glass (big I know, but it makes me feel fuller quicker), and throw in a cup of spinach and maybe a grape tomato (any kind of tomato immediately makes me gag when I try to eat the, - the juice, the pulp, the taste…blech. I'm getting sick just thinking about it!), a banana (half or whole) or a cup of greek yogurt to make the smoothie thicker and creamier, frozen berries (I use blueberries and sometimes frozen strawberries), a few broccoli florets, two tbsp of flax and maca powder each, two tsp of cinnamon, one tbsp of honey for sweetness, one part unsweetened almond/cashew/soy milk and one part 1% milk, and just a dash of vanilla extract for flavouring. I pulse everything on high for a minute, and enjoy. You don't taste any of the vegetables and really only taste banana or berries. I normally make this for breakfast, and then perhaps again for part of my dinner. This is the best way I can think of for me to get my required fruit and veg portions. Hope this helps :)

    i agree with douglasslb..write down what foods you like.even if it means makeing 2 coloms.the ones you like the most on one side.and the ones you like least on the other side.might even try useing word pad to type it out.then print it..then each time you fix a meal sit down with it and look it over to decide what you want to go with and try out when it comes to puting them togeather..and next time you go shoping.go up n down each ilse to see what you havent eaten in some time but like at least some what.my mom cooks a great asparagus cassarol.might want to try some thing like that.
