Just as I'm thinking I know it all, I read a suggestion for adding pureed pumpkin to yogurt. I love this idea! Things have changed since thins article was written, so I'm adding it to my sugar-free Greek yogurt! 8-)
Diabetes is in my family. I work hard to keep it under control. My Diabetes educator is a great help.
I ate fewer carbs than the recommended here before diagnosis and was diagnosed eating that lower amount. (My average was 120-130 grams per day). To lower my A1c I have to get it down to 50-80 grams per day. Also have problems with that high of fiber, though I know that isn't a problem for most people.
What I need to do is follow what my doctor recommends and definitely NOT what the dietitians I have seen said to. They, in fact, recommended taking cans of fruit with me and having them for snacks with no protein or fat with them.
Great basic overview! Seems on par with current recommendations. And health/longevity studies.
I understand that beans and legumes contain carbs, but I wish you had included them in the protein alternatives category - maybe with an explanation that they include both?
Education classes were an eye-opener.
This is another example of an outdated approach. It needs to either be deleted and replaced with something more up to date.
I met with a dietitian after I was diagnose and all she did was give me a pre-printed eating plan. Absolutely no individual information what so ever. I was very disappointed. I get more information from SparkPeople meal plans.
I don't understand. This article explains how to change the amount of protein if one's healthcare provider so recommends. However under "Edit Your Nutrition Tracker" it states "Note, people on our diabetes management program cannot change their carb, protein, and fat goals". Can't be both, can it?
There is no way I could eat that many carbs and maintain proper sugar levels.
Today was my once a month-eat as i please for lunch! Fried Green Tomato BLT with Cajun Chipotle sauce,French fries(i ate only 1/2) and a Lavender infused Vodka Lemonade. Back to eating right for supper.
