For people living with diabetes and for those trying to prevent Type 2 Diabetes healthy eating is important for controlling blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol. It’s also really critical for losing and maintaining a healthy weight.
When you have diabetes, your family members can eat the same food that you’re eating and benefit from it because they are at higher risk for developing Type 2 Diabetes themselves.
Maintaining a healthy weight for a person living with diabetes is critical to manage blood sugar, blood pressure, cholesterol, and to prevent complications such as heart disease and stroke. A target blood sugar range for a person living with diabetes would be 70 to 130 before meals and 180 two hours after a meal.
But the best thing is to check with your healthcare team about a target range that’s good for
you. For a person who is trying to control their blood sugars, carbohydrates that they eat have the biggest impact on the blood sugar. So knowing how many carbs you’re eating helps you keep your blood sugar in a good range. Carbohydrates are found in fruits, vegetables, grains, dairy products — more places than you expect. A dietician can really help you count carbohydrates and find the foods that contain them.
Since so many foods contain carbohydrates and you’re trying to get the number down to a level that helps your blood sugar, a dietician will help you balance all of that.
Eating a healthier diet actually makes you feel much better in addition to having better blood sugars. For a person living with diabetes or trying to prevent diabetes and maintain a healthy
weight, these foods can really help: lean sources of protein like chicken or fish; whole grain foods — crackers, cereal; vegetables, especially those that grow above the ground and the kind you put in
salads; eating whole fruits in place of drinking juices and using low-fat and non-fat dairy products like milk and yogurt.
If making big changes in the way you eat seems overwhelming, think about small steps and try to find a quick win.
One thing you can do to help you control your portions is you eat using a nine-inch plate. If you divide that plate in half and fill it with vegetables and fruits that leaves you room on the other half for a quarter of the plate to be meat, probably about the size of a deck of cards or three ounces and a quarter of the plate to be starch, grains, or potatoes or bread. Try to eat your meals and snacks at the same time each day and that way you won’t get too hungry at any one time which could lead to overeating.
Take time when you’re eating. Chew your food slowly and enjoy it. Give your brain a chance to know that your stomach is full.
When it comes to seasoning your food use herbs and spices. Leave the salt and butter on the side.
Make a list when you go shopping and stick with it. Don’t go shopping when you’re hungry because
that can lead you to some poor choices. Bring your lunch to work instead of eating out. This will help you control your portions and avoid overeating like you would in a restaurant.
When you’re cooking at home, wrap up and put away your leftovers promptly. This way you won’t be tempted to go back for seconds. And think about stir-fries; they’re a great way for you to boost your vegetables and cut back on meat, plus they actually make very good leftovers.
People fall off-track all the time when they try and eat a healthier diet. It’s normal. Don’t get upset about it. Just try to get back on-track soon after you fall off so you don’t get totally derailed.
It’s normal to get discouraged periodically. Think about talking to a dietician. They can help you tailor these diet recommendations to fit your needs and come up with a plan that’s easier for you to follow. For a person living with diabetes there are no special foods you need to buy.
There are no foods you need to avoid entirely. With portion control and meal planning, even
with diabetes, you can really enjoy eating.
Insulin levels normalised. diseases are linked to glycol
Ethylene glycol poisoning through ingestion can cause noncardiogenic pulmonary edema and ARDS. Ethylene glycol poisoning can cause dysrhythmias and heart failure. Ethylene glycol toxicity is characterized by an osmolal gap and metabolic acidosis with an elevated anion gap.
Since the 1950s diabetes of it has been linked to an insufficient level of initial and in the human blood stream. I have practically found that ½ minute of high intensity ultrasound to the lower right of the chest, will clear type two diabetes. Type one requires the full minute.
Cancers are caused by an inflated to limit dividing viral altered cell. Diabetes is also linked to a dividing viral altered cell and 1 minute of HIUS will totally clear all 200 cancers out there. 8W 1 MHz ultrasound is HIUS
I’m finally free from this so called Diabetes disease with the help of Dr IGUDIA on YouTube after using his herbs medication.
are these guesses?any study?
Hello everyone, I’m here to share my great testimony on how I got cured of my type 2 Diabetes with the natural herbal medication I ordered from Dr Igudia on his YouTube channel
She’s talking about the right food to eat and what not to eat and she says that yogurt’s okay well yogurt has one of the highest contents of sugar
diabetes fixed now. Diabetes was all cured 2013
2002 and the Moffitt cancer centre applied High Intensity UltraSound externally to more cancers. Which give off X rays in ultrasound scans! Every registered Dr. On earth bought an 8 W three MHZ ultrasound unit from the Moffitt, to verify the new medical science.
As for earlier to validate the new medical science which is struck off the Dr. and health centre/hospital. So 2002 or cancer drugs are defective and fatal medicine. Killing of patients horribly within two years!
When I was first diagnosed as a Type 2 diabetic I was referred to a diabetes nutritionist. By that time I had time to research what healthy eating was for a diabetic so I knew some about it. The nutritionist was very little help to me. I only saw her once. If I had followed her advice I would still be on insulin. As it was I got off from it the second month after being diagnosed. I saw an Endocrinologist twice and the second time he told me I didn’t need to come back. I continue to monitor my glucose and eat accordingly. I do not feel deprived but I do watch my carb intake.
There is a balanced relationship between nature and man.
This balance should produce healthy results.
It is necessary to understand the balance between nature and man correctly.
If you eat raw fat, the raw fat in your body will melt and disappear.
(cold pressed vegetable oils and raw butter)
If you eat sugary fruits, your blood sugar will go down.
(The sweeter the fruit, the better.)
Real raw honey can lower blood sugar.
Refined sugar is poison.
Refined sugar is a foreign, unidentified substance to the body.
Do not eat refined sugar.
Refined sugar is not found in nature.
Refined foods are not part of nature.
Refined foods disrupt the balance between nature and humans.
Refined foods upset people’s balance.
What I do is "Brainstorm".
I am generating ideas so that we can understand the relationship between nature and humans correctly.
Wow why so high target rate?? Grains , crackers, potatoes raise BS’. Fructose is stored in the liver as fat. No wonder we’re in a diabesity epidemic with this misinformation.
My appreciation goes to Dr Igudia on YouTube for helping me with his natural herbs supplements which I used in curing my type 2 diabetes completely
No carbs no sugar and exercise. You’ll be alright. I changed the way I eat and within 3 weeks I’ve lots 25lbs. It works if you stick to it.
Thanks for sharing 🤗
That salad is sad…. what I don’t understand is why you’re pushing chicken and dairy? Refined carbs are bad not all carbs you need to give the right information that’s why everyone’s so confused
You arr so outdated, and u have no evidence to support what u say, grains have no place in the diebetic diet, go very low carb, u are very uninforned

My type 2 Diabetes came to an end after using the natural herbs medication I got from Dr IGUDIA on his YouTube channel. I will forever thank you sir.
No drug cure. diabetes all fixed
I’ve published the idea in 2013. After I cured my church friend of his type two diabetes: you want ½ minute of e.g. 8 W 1 MHz ultrasound to the bottom right of the rib cage over the pancreas. Just one time!
This was the idea was medically confirmed to cure all cancers in 1 minute 2002, by three medical professors. Since when there prescription or cancer drugs has been defective and fatal medical malpractice. 10 million UK pounds for each medicating a cancer patient death.
A diabetics patient should always avoid butter, cream, cashew, raisins, peanuts, whole milk drink, alcohol, cream based liqueurs, cheese, condensed milk, frozen pulses. I read all these things in diet chart of planet Ayurveda which their doctor provided to my mother when she was a patient of diabetes. Now she is well and fit because of their proper guidance and medication.
ultrasound fixes diabetes. Every medicated diabetes or cancer death murder
2002 and three medical professors published the use a one session of High Intensity UltraSound to clear all 200 cancers out there, plus all viral and bacterial infections,
A instantly cancer medication and all infection medication became defective and criminal medical malpractice.
Cancer use to kill 20 million people around the world every year. It is now almost cease to exist! But doctors medicated 400 million people to an agonising and expensive, unnecessary Bio chemically assisted cancer death.
The advice at the beginning about counting carbohydrates conflicts with the advice later on recommending Whole Grains. This kind of advice is confusing for someone who-say- is coming from the Atkins diet and might think chugging a cup of heavy whipping cream or eating fried chicken everyday is healthier than eating an apple or a half cup of oatmeal. You might think I’m kidding but my dad really believes this because he’s been led to believe carbs are bad by (1) Atkins and (2) vague advice like this.
There is a lot of money tied up with keeping a diabetics sick for years and years.
*My daughter drinks lots of water and urinates with the same rate, there are no other symptoms to show if those have anything to do with diabetes. This is a good information that I have gone through **Diabets.Care** She is 2 years 9 months, hale and healthy, have not done any blood test. But I am not certain if one can get diabetes at such a tender age. Please I will like to know more on that*
Still can’t believe I could get rid of my Diabetes disease not until I used Dr IGUDIA on YouTube herbs medication and now my blood sugar is back to normal
From a diabetic standpoint what is not the best about whole milk Greek yogurt?
Using herbal approach from #Drsusanoduwa is a complete game changer for me. I was diagnosed a year ago with type 2 diabetes, after using #Drsusanoduwa herbal approach I was cured completely, I do recommend her to anyone having similar issues.
I want to personally take time out to appreciate Dr Igudia on his YouTube channel for the herbs medication I ordered from him in curing my type 2 Diabetes disease completely within just three weeks of using his natural herbs supplements
this video is excellent i would like to suggest you about planet ayurveda because my grandmother was a diabetic patient after treatment from planet ayurveda my grandmother health is good .
I got cured permanently with dr iyaremoses herbal medicine #driyaremoses
Stop believing What the doctors says that there’s no cure for diabetes, I was recently cured of my Type 2 Diabetes disease with the herbs medication I ordered from Dr Igudia on his YouTube channel
All cured. diabetes is cured physically and totally
Since the 1950s diabetes has been linked to a normal levels of insulin in the blood. And drug company is are void and absolute fortune selling supplemental insulin.
2002 and the Moffitt cancer centre published the use of High Intensity UltraSound to clear the viral structure causing all 200 cancers. The viral structures have to be pressurised in order to grow.
What a lot of common else this lady speaks.
I’m finally free from this so called Diabetes disease with the help of Dr IGUDIA on YouTube after using his herbs medication.
Healthy eating for diabeties and the first food they show is CEREAL lol. And then the plate of food with the driest low fat piece of meat I ever saw, with CARBS. No wonder people are sick. You need healthy animal fats like whole eggs, fatty fish, grass fed meats, seafoods, butter. These people don’t know truely what causes or how to truly cure diabeties. It started in the early 1900’s when people started to eat Crisco (hydrogenated cottonseed oil) and then other seed oil consumption went up and up and up.. and so did Diabeties, Heart Disease, Cancer and Obesity. Remove all vegetable oils, and eat when people ate before disease started.
GOD bless #ogbakhacure for the great work
you’ve been doing in people’s lives. I am a living
testimony of your HPV cure. Keep saving lives sir..
Clear elderly onset diabetes
Medicine tries to maintain that diabetes is a spooky condition! Where the insulin production the body is insufficient.
What is actually happening is as a viral fragment, in the pancreas interferes with the instant system. Type two we downgrade the biochemical feedback. Type one and we make the antisense to insulin – pretty much standard viral behaviour!
