I'm a vegetarian, I need a diet advice for complete set of vitamins, protein and all.

I'm a vegetarian, I need a diet advice for complete set of vitamins, protein and all.

If you eat dairy that will help but w/out dairy you are more at risk for low protein if you don't know how to combine foods properly. A nutritionist is the best person to see. Peace and good health. ...Read more

Is brown rice healthy for consumption for a type 2 diabetic? I like brown rice veggie sushi, is it a healthy choice for me? Thanks.

Better than white: Rice -whether it is white or brown is a carbohydrate and should be eaten in a limited amount when you have dm. Brown rice is a better choice because it is higher in fiiber and tends to have better effect on blood sugars. I usually encourage my pts w dm to stay < 30-45grms/meal in women and < 45-60 in men- rice i feel is a carb that encourage getting rid of and focusing on increased veggies. ...Read more
