Simple....: First you have to live....then develop disease ...then die. So for your sustenance.....you need carbohydrate......rice , wheat, barley, variety of other grains, potato for immediate and sustained supply of energy. Diabetes is a disease of Insulin dysfunction, lack of ability to burn the calories you consume, idle life style.
