Top 10 Foods that Help Me Manage Type 2 Diabetes

Top 10 Foods that Help Me Manage Type 2 Diabetes


Top 10 Foods that Help Me Manage Type 2 Diabetes
Top 10 Foods that Help Me Manage Type 2 Diabetes
Ive had Type 2 diabetes for 14 years. Finding the right combination of low-GI foods and living a normal life has been really trying. A few months ago, I decided to start eating clean.
I also dont eat carbohydrates like potatoes, pasta, rice, bread and sugar of any kind. I eat very little fruit, and I stay away from sodas, even diet sodas.
A lot. Thanks to this diet I no longer take medication for Type 2 diabetes.
These are the top 10 foods that help me manage my diabetes:
85% Dark Chocolate: When I was a kid and tried my very first Hersheys Special Dark from the bag of mixed mini chocolate bars, I was horrified at how bitter it was. I picked all of them out and (gasp) threw them away. As an adult, I grew to enjoy the subtleties of dark chocolate. I learned to appreciate that its not a treat thats meant to be chewed quickly and devoured. Its meant to be savored and allowed to melt on your tongue. A single 1-inch square after dinner is my regular treat at the end of the day.
Sparkling water: I used to drink a 6-pack of Classic Coke every day. Sure, that was back in college when we all thought we were invincible, and I havent binged to that extent in 20 years. I never drank diet soda but I know that there are studies that show diet sodas cause insulin resistance. Nowadays I get my soda fix with zero-calorie sparkling water. I drink it ice cold in a fancy glass with a twist. I discovered its the fizz I like, not the sweetness.
Cauliflower: As a vegetable, its okay. But as Continue reading

How I Stay on Track With My Diabetes Diet During Holiday Meals | Everyday Health

How I Stay on Track With My Diabetes Diet During Holiday Meals | Everyday Health


My 79-year-old mother is a house- and pet-sitter in her hometown and is usually busy whenever the holidays roll around, so the family usually spends these special occasions anywhere but her house. Over the last few years, weve held gatherings in various places from the local steak house and our favorite barbecue joint to other family members abodes, such as my cousins house in Atlanta, where we enjoyed Turkey Day in 2015.
That year was the first time we had enjoyed Thanksgiving at her house in several years, but the memory stands out for another reason: I ate way too much.
I remember the day distinctly: I made three trips through the food line, had a quick nap in the recliner while reminiscing about family gatherings spent down on the farm at Grannys, and, two hours later, was ready for a turkey sandwich and more deviled eggs. I was so full that I could barely move, and I hadnt had dessert yet!
How Holiday Meals Tend to Derail My Diabetes Management Plan
Although I remember the discomfort of last years feast vividly, this episode of joyful binge-eating actually wasnt a stand-alone event. Whenever a big day rolls around, no matter how hard I try or how many preparations I make, I usually tend to go off my meal plan, eat too many carbs, and overeat, not finding my way back into my healthier lifestyle until about a week later.
As someone who has lived with type 2 diabetes for 20 years, I have learned a lot, but I continue to struggle with the management of my disease. Its a daily struggle, but as I have matured, not only in real life but as someone with a chronic illne Continue reading

The Diabetes Supplies Thief

The Diabetes Supplies Thief


Oren Liebermann is a CNN journalist based in Jerusalem who has received two Emmy awards and three Associated Press awards. His travel memoir, The Insulin Express, tells of his Type 1 diabetes diagnosis while globe trotting through 30 different countries. This is an excerpt.
I never see the bastards coming. There are two one driving the motorbike and the other sitting behind him. The second guy is the thief. The first is the getaway driver. Their target is a small pouch sticking about two inches out of my left cargo pocket. Im sure they think it has money since, somehow, I doubt they realize that no tourist would have his billfold hanging out of his pocket. Inside the pouch that I got from Etihad Airways on my way home after my diagnosis are my diabetic supplies: my blood sugar monitor, test strips, and about a third of an insulin pen. The red plaid pouch scores far more points for functionality than style.
They yank the pouch from my pocket as Cassie and I are walking to dinner along the river in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. They make a left and speed off. I immediately start sprinting after them, running full speed for about fifty meters, adrenaline pumping through my veins. Without my diabetes supplies, I am left guessing at my blood sugar. My glucose monitor is the single most important piece of equipment for me to control my diabetes. I cannot imagine a life without it because there is no life without it.
I keep them in sight, but Im not exactly closing the gap. Its not that Im slow. Quite the contrary. I was the fastest Jew in my high school, which almost means somethin Continue reading
