Eating with Diabetes

I've been reading a lot about the best way to eat when suffering from diabetes, and want to share that information with you! 

In all of the articles and books I've read, the best way of eating to control blood sugar is by eating legumes, vegetables and whole grains.  That's right! No fancy medications or brands, it's legumes, vegetables and whole grains, in combination, that keep blood sugar stable throughout the day.

The literature differs on how often a person should eat.  Some say six times a day, others three or five.  However, they all make a point to say "do not skip breakfast" even if it's a small meal.

Not ready to give up meat just yet?  Try this, only eat meat during dinner.  Eat your fill of legumes, vegetables and whole grains for breakfast and lunch.   After you are used to that, try going without meat for a week and see how you feel!  

Top 2 Books:
Dr. Bernstein's Diabetes Solution - great explanation of what is going on in the body
Dr Mark Hyman's The Blood Sugar Solution - great explanation of how food effects the body and offers meal plans
