BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

For those suffering from diabetes, watching their diet and health is not a choice, but a requirement for staying alive. Making healthy choices can aid in managing diabetes and help avoid related illnesses. The creation of these diets is specifically designed to reverse this disease in those who have it. A key component to diabetes diets is managing the amount of simple and refined carbohydrates consumed, ensuring that consistent exercise is performed and managing portion control.
A diabetes diet can be a catalyst for maintaining your desired weight, avoiding heart disease and managing blood sugar.

PRO
  • Diabetes diets meets the special needs of diabetics
  • Some diets are endorsed by ADA
CON
  • Diet plan may not be relevant for all dieters
DIET and NUTRITION

Although the specific eating plans will vary from diabetes diet to diabetes diet, most of the diets will require that your daily caloric intake comes from complex carbohydrates, lean proteins and very little or no saturated fats. It is suggested that for those following a diabetes diet, consuming plenty of fresh vegetables, whole grains, protein, some fruit and occasional sweets will result in balanced blood-sugar levels and even weight loss. Some diabetes diets might suggest that you eat 5-7 small meals throughout the day while others will have you adhere to a more traditional three-meals-a-day approach.

EXERCISE

Since exercise is a key component to healthy living and weight loss, most diabetes diets will include an exercise plan that should be followed on most days of the week.

CONCLUSION

Diabetes diets can be a very effective choice to address the specific needs of diabetics. Most diets will subscribe to a diet low in refined carbohydrates and saturated fats and high in fresh vegetables, lean proteins and exercise and moderate amounts of fats, fruit and complex carbohydrates. But before beginning any diabetes diet, visit with your doctor or diabetes professional.

I've been a diabetic for many years. This book is a good guide, and I rely heavily on diabetic nutrition clases offered my doctor and hospital.

The diet is designed to prolong diabetes....why would the ADA or the medical community want to cure it if it is a $132 billion dollar cash cow? Truth is there are way too many carbs promoted in this diet and all diabetics should look more towards restricted carb plans. I did...and I am no longer on any meds or insulin after being diagnosed 2 months ago with Blood sugars of 480 and A1C of 12. Today my A1C was 4.8. My doctor is still scratching his head.

I would be weary of the sweetners that you intake, just because the ADA says its ok we still have to be very careful. I did enjoy a lot of the recipes from the Diabetes diet and also make sure to speak with my doctor regularly.

I looked at the ADA site and it says that a lot of the usual sweeteners are ok to eat. Plus, they dont have calories. I like this diet b/c its really easy.

The Diabetes diet gives you lots of recipes to help you with your sweet tooth. As for sweetners, I only know that artificial sugar is no good.


lucy_y

I keep hearing about sweetner alternatives for those of us with diabetes yet I don't know which ones....any have recommendations?
