12 Fabulous Foods To Beat Diabetes

Eating for Type 2 Diabetes En español l For years, experts recommended a low-fat diet, but new research finds that low-carb diets are better at reducing high blood sugar. The American Diabetes Association encourages people to work with a nutrition professional on a personalized diet plan. These tasty foods will enhance any plan. Berries Blueberries, blackberries, strawberries and their richly colored cousins are all high in fiber and brimming with vitamins and antioxidants. They don't have much in the way of carbs, so they're low on the glycemic index (GI). Still, they contain a lot of sugar, so limit your serving size. Cheese Cheese is a satisfying food. It has practically no carbs, which means it won't significantly influence blood sugar levels, and because it's high in protein, a little will go a long way in controlling hunger pangs.

    There are a lot of low carb members on the team but this team isn't about that. It's about choosing the right carbs and that can differ somewhat from person to person. I have never been on a real low carb diet. I eat treats on special occasions and even allow myself a low sugar, high cacao piece of chocolate a day as that is allowed on my diet as long as it is not over 100 calories. I don't avoid any vegetables and can have starchy veggies and I eat one almost daily but I eat more nonstarchy ones. I actually prefer white rice but seldom have it or even rice period. A serving isn't much and I can eat a lot more veggies for the same calories and less carbs and more vitamins and minerals. I like volume to stay full as it keeps me from wanting to snack. I love veggies but I just like rice. I like bread but I don't tolerate it - too many carbs, too many calories, and I can't have gluten so it is too expensive too. The same with pasta - it and bread are triggers for me.

    Mort-
    I am actually glad I mentioned the low carb thing because I guess I thought it was kinda
    - now I really feel good about being here because I completely agree about the processed foods and like having the support to continue to avoid them!
    I raised -fed my kids that way too. BUT we go to have some things like cake once in awhile.
    There is this movie called Ice Princess and the Mom played by Joan Cusack says to her daughter on some special day when she is waking her about how that day they can have white rice instead of brown lol...and my kids laughed because she sounded like me.

    I'm the same way with too many carbs in the morning. The more I eat, the more I am triggered. I eat egg whites every day for breakfast because I have to have protein and it can't contain very many carbs. I can't tolerate veggies and things like chicken for breakfast. It is too gross to me. I don't eat anything until about 11 as I do daily intermittent fasting which keeps my blood sugar more stable. I could eat beans every day but can't handle them every day. I like them okay but don't love them. I don't eat grains every day either and should seldom eat them unless it is quinoa or maybe a serving of long cooking brown rice which doesn't seem to trigger me. Wheat is out. I can tolerate cheese and maybe one yogurt a day, sometimes.
    I totally agree that vegans and vegetarians should really join those teams as they are specific to what they are eating and this isn't. Eating right on a vegetarian diet involves attention to detail and I'm not offering advice on that as that is not the focus on this team. We are not a low carb team either as many of our members eat the standard American diet. We are about eating the right kind of carbs, not about giving up meat, fish, eggs, protein, or fat. This group encourages eating less added sugar, processed food, and junk food. They are to be treated as treats and eaten only sparingly if one can tolerate them at all. There is no debate among most experts if standard candy, cookies, cake, pie, doughnuts, etc. are good for you.
