Diabetes: First of all, I recommend that you avoid packaged foods marketed as sugar-free. Avoid artificial sweeteners, too. Eat real unprocessed foods like lean proteins, fresh non-starchy vegetables. Uses seasonings and spices like cinnamon, fenugreek, herbs to enhance flavor. After 2 to 3 weeks off of artificial sweeteners and other lab-made foods, your taste buds will recover and you may enjoy food!

Nutritious Diet: I will assume you have Type 2 Diabetes. I work with patients one on one to help them change their daily habits to reduce the insulin resistance that is at the root of their Type 2 Diabetes. Many patients can achieve normal blood sugars without medications through intensive lifestyle counseling with a physician. This includes reducing stress, improving sleep, improving nutrition and exercise.
