I have a diabetic friend. He wants to eat vegetarian. How to do when everything vegetarian is basically carbs?
More optimistic note. I think that it is possible to be a vegetarian and a diabetic since leafy vegetables and beans generally are low-starch. However, i agree with the comments above: your friend should still talk to a dietitian to make sure that they're eating enough low-starch foods and still getting all their essential nutrients. One way to give freedom to your meals will be used the Insulin based on carbohydrates.
Agree w/ Dr. Pizzo. Agree with dr. Pizzo. Be sure that it is a dietician (who has taken tests and has a license issued by the state in which he or she practices) and not just a "nutritionist" (who is unlicensed and has no state regulated training or testing.).
