Absolutely!: A good diet for most people with diabetes is also a good diet for most people without diabetes. People with type 2 diabetes can eat almost anything, following two basic principles: portion control & balance. Portion control keeps total calories in a range to allow for weight loss/prevent weight gain. Balance means eating protein along with carbs to slow absorption of the sugar, and prevent spikes. ...Read more

What would happen if you don't get enough food to eat when you are a diabetic?

What would happen if you don't get enough food to eat when you are a diabetic?

The sugar goes down: This happens to everyone, not just diabetics. We have a limited store of sugar/protein(which can be converted to sugar) which is being used constantly to keep body alive; thus must be replenished--via eating. Not eating=storage depletion. For diabetics, it is more concerning due to the use of medication which reduces the sugar. So, +meds and no food=danger of hypoglycemia. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

Another is emphasizing complex carbs over simple carbs to spread sugar absorption out over a longer timeframe and reduce "spikes" in blood sugar. Complex carbs = whole grain, starchy vegetables, beans. ...Read more

Can anybody explain more or less diabetic merciful food calendar from morning to dark?

Can anybody explain more or less diabetic merciful food calendar from morning to dark?

Strict: Basically this is a "soft" (but strict) diet that a diabetic patient can follow that will still aim to avoid foods that are 'bad' for him/her; but not too brutally restrictive. My advice is to be as strict as you can be; lose as much weight as you can if it applies; start to exercise because the stricter you control your diabetes now...The longer you will be without complications! ...Read more
