Type 2 Diabetes Food List (recommended Forbidden)

Type 2 Diabetes Food List (Recommended Forbidden) The number of people with diabetes is on the rise. But the good news, it is preventable and manageable. If you have type-2 diabetes, the most common form of diabetes, your diet plays a key role to control it. Here is food list (recommended and forbidden) for diabetics! Sugar (glucose) is the source of your energy. It is required by cells of the body to keep them survive. The bodys cells need glucose to help make muscles and other tissues, too. Your body gets glucose from your dietary glucose (food) and liver. In the body, glucose is metabolized with the help of insulin. When there is excess glucose, the liver stores it as glycogen. And if there is low glucose in the blood (such as when we have not eaten in a while), the stored glycogen is converted back into glucose to help make the blood sugar level back to normal! Insulin is a kind of protein and hormone produced by beta cells of pancreas. This hormone is responsible to control blood sugar and keep it normal. If there something goes awry with your insulin, your body is poor in controlling your blood sugar as a result, the blood sugar is much easier to rise. Normally, the high amo Continue reading >>

    Has anyone decided to start a Keto diet post-sleeve? I'm 5 months post-sleeve and just starting a Keto diet. I knew I was in trouble when I felt so bad after the sleeve. Testing confirmed my fears, I was allergic to almost everything I was eating on the bariatric diet. Lactose, carrageenan, soy, even whey. All that's left for protein is egg whites and plant based.
    I've found almost NOTHING in the literature about the Keto diet in Bariatric patients. We simply CAN NOT consume enough calories to meet standard intake levels for Keto. However, I feel 20 years younger on the diet - fewer joint aches, no hunger, mental clarity, even energy. Only 4 days - what a difference! I haven't seen the scale move yet, but my pants are starting to droop.
    For those of you who are unfamiliar with Keto, it's macros are a bit different than bariatric macros. Much higher fat, medium protein, super low carbs. I can have as much full fat whipped cream as I want, but not an apple. It's such a backward seeming diet - but it works. Hit a stall? 3-4 days on eggs only (keep up the hydration, of course). Eggs any way you want them. Swimming in butter or an omelet or fried in olive oil or baked in a quiche. Interesting.
    So - is anyone here on a keto diet post-sleeve? What kind of calorie intake and macros do you use? Are you losing faster than non-keto bariatric patients? Does it all seem so much easier than adjusting to the bariatric diet? Please let me know...

    I am not familiar with the Keto diet, but based on your description, it sounds similar to the original Atkins Diet during the induction period where the objective is to limit carbs to 25 grams a day and reach a state of ketosis. It even had you testing your urine daily with special strips to determine if you had reached ketosis!!
    I don't think that bariatric surgery requires any special type of diet, per se, as long as it allows you to lose weight and maintain general nutrition, protein and liquid requirements. The two most common bases of diets, bariatric or otherwise, are probably either calories or carbohydrates, and both have generally been proven to be effective for losing weight and keeping it off. I personally prefer a low carb diet, primarily because I have always found it doesn't sacrifice taste as much as a low calorie based diet does. Plus, if you are Type 2 diabetic, as I was before my surgery, low carbs can be even more beneficial in reducing your blood sugar. Probably the most effective diet is both low carb and low calorie, but I think it would also require low taste making it very hard to maintain, at least for me!! They cut away 75% of my stomach, but I think it would have been even more effective if they had cut away 75% of my taste buds!!!
    Since about a month after my surgery, I have generally followed a low carb diet, generally less than 50 grams a day. There are a lot more low carb items available now if you do a little research on the web, so it is a lot easier to follow a low carb diet now than it was 20-30 years ago.
    It sounds like the Keto diet is working for you, but I am not sure that 4 days is long enough yet to declare it a success!!
    You indicate that the Keto diet may be considered somewhat backward, but I think it would only be considered backward because of the low fat mantra that our government has been trying to sell for the last 20-30 years with very little scientific basis!! And the result has been unprecedented obesity in our population!!

    I have not done keto post-op yet as I'm only on week 3, but I intend to start weaning into it once I'm back on regular foods and have tested what my stomach can handle. I don't think necessarily that post-op wls means you can't successfully use a keto-diet, but I would be careful adding in your fats. It may not be as much as an issue with a VSG versus a RYN since a VSG does not remove any intestinal track for nutrient absorption, but high fats still have the chance to trigger dumping syndrome. And that's very very not good.
    I think for blending a keto and bariatric diet successfully, still focus on getting your 2-3 oz of protein at each meal if possible and complement it with a healthy fat like the eggs cooked in butter, or meat with avocado. Since you have allergies to many of the common protein sources, definitely talk to a nutritionist to go over what type of foods you'll be eating and that might want to include still sipping on a protein shake throughout the day with some MCT oil added in there to load your macros. You can even use MCT oil while cooking and it'll give you a good boost.
    Calorie wise, I think you'll be aiming for 800-1,000 easy a day with the fats and might need to watch that you're not going too high. Macros (fats, protein, carbs), might see if you can balance it to keep your fats and your proteins pretty even at 50-40-10, or 45-35-20.
    Let me know how it goes!
    P.S. Not sure if you have tried it, but I have been lactose intolerant since a kid and I found Fair-Life milk a couple of years ago that I am able to drink without issues. Due to their filtering process, it removes practically all lactose from the milk and has 13g of protein per 8 ounces so it's a good amount for the fat and carb ratios.

10 Foods To Avoid On A Diabetic Diet

If you’re on a diabetic diet, you’ve probably been told that sugar is a no-no. But for diabetics, the truth is not as simple as “allowed foods” or “forbidden foods.” More important than sugar content of any one food is the overall balance of foods you’re eating. Focus on avoiding too many carbohydrates of any kind. Eat smaller meals. When you do eat carbs, choose the more densely nutritious complex carbohydrates and eat them with protein at the same time. The following list of foods to avoid on a diabetic diet is not a hard-and-fast list, but a guideline to help you limit your intake of foods likely to increase your blood-sugar levels. Talk to your doctor about your specific needs if you have any questions about your diabetic diet. Refined Pasta and Noodles Most pasta and noodles have a high glycemic index, meaning they’re made with simple carbohydrates like refined wheat flour or rice. Diabetics should be careful not to eat too much pasta. Eating pasta made of whole grains with a low-carb sauce rich in protein and with lots of green and red vegetables may mitigate some of pasta’s strong effects on blood-sugar levels. Rice Avoid white rice, which has been refined Continue reading >>

    Same food... same insulin... same time of day... vastly different results.

    So I eat the same thing for breakfast about 4-5 mornings a week. Cereal (whole grain fibery stuff), milk, two cups of coffee. I measure out the cereal by weight so I know I'm getting the same amount every day. I take the same amount of insulin to cover it.
    MOST of the time, it's just fine 2 hours later, it typically spikes me about 40-50 points, then 3+ hours later I'm back down to wherever I started from.
    But some days, it only spikes me 20 points 2 hours later... and other days, like today, I'm EIGHTY points above where I started.
    Fairly certain I'll come back down at the 3+ hour mark.
    There's been nothing weird going on today. Same Lantus as always last night, no stress in my life, worked out yesterday. Overall, just a typical morning.
    But why oh why does this happen? Is this just the fun of being diabetic? Do you all get really different results from the same foods?

    Sometimes it's the vinegar on your salad.
    Sometimes it's where in injection of insulin occured.
    Sometimes we digest food quickly.
    Sometimes we digest food slowly.
    Sometimes the workout makes it different.
    Sometimes the workout does not make it different.
    I have yet to figure it all out!
    The only think that works for certain is just barely eating seems to provide the most consistent results. Unless of course you are sick, going to be sick, just worked out, or the moon is acting funny again.

    Since I'm not on insulin, yet my calculations don't have to be exact. But I find the same thing alot. The same amount of carbs produces different results. I did some experiments on testing during the day when I hadn't eaten in 4 or 5 hours. I found my bg numbers were actually higher and that was after eating a low carb lunch. So I think there is a lot more to this than just carbs. I think the stress in our bodies makes our bg go up. This is undetected stress and our bodies are misinterpreting signals to produce cortisol for ordinary events in everyday lives.

Foods Not To Eat With Type 2 Diabetes

For many, diabetes cannot be controlled through diet alone, but making wise food choices is beneficial for all people with diabetes. There are no foods that are absolutely prohibited when you have diabetes, but certain food types make controlling blood sugar extremely difficult and also contribute to poor overall health. If you have diabetes, avoiding sugary foods and foods with unhealthy fats, for instance, can enhance your wellness and minimize the necessity of medical intervention to manage your diabetes. Video of the Day Foods and Drinks High in Sugar Natural sugars are present in many healthy whole foods. You can eat sugar in moderation, even if you have diabetes. But sugar is a carbohydrate, and like all carbohydrates, it will affect blood glucose levels. When you do consume a food high in sugar, let it take the place of another carbohydrate you would have otherwise consumed. For example, if you plan to having a cookie after your meal, don't eat the baked potato that came with the meal. In general, it's advisable to avoid regular consumption of sugar-rich foods like cake, cookies and candies. Also, be aware of the sugar found in beverages, including sodas, fruit drinks and hi Continue reading >>

    I'm glad it's working for you. My doctor put me on it and I would sleep for 18 hours at a time, black out when I wasn't sleeping, and throw up when I wasn't blacking out. It was a horrendous experience. Her reaction to my concerns regarding these symptoms caused me to seek out an entirely new clinic who took me off it immediately.
