Diabetes diet plan recipes

Common Questions and Answers about Diabetes diet plan recipes


Avatar n tn Hi ozarkskye, my advice is based on my own experience, as I'm not a physician but have been a diabetic for 11 years. There are many diet plans for diabetics, but the ones that work best are usually custom-made for individuals, tailored to their specific needs by their nutritionist/dietitian. Was the diet plan your doctor gave you created with your input and have you discussed your concerns with him?

Also, avoid starchy foods like potatoes, rice, and any foods made with white flour - white bread, crackers, pasta/noodles - as these turn quickly into sugar after eating. Post back if you have further questions.
Avatar f tn I e-mailed the diabetes education nurse at Joslin Diabetes Center and she responded that a weight loss diet has to be customized for the person. So poster diabetes86 is correct that there is no "diabetes" diet. For your father, you should look for a diabetes program (free if possible) that will show him (and you) what to eat, how much and how often. There is literature to read and make note of.
Avatar f tn You can get low carb recipes online, my favorite was Atkins which is a low carb diet, and as long as you're eating those 3 meals and 2 snacks you shouldn't start losing weight. Good luck and just follow the specialists directions!
Avatar n tn I had to have a physical from my own doctor who had to sign some paper work from GHI and I had to have a blood test as specified from GHI Medical. I followed the 500 calorie diet religiously. I had plenty of energy to exercise which I did 5 - 6 aerobic work outs and 3 weight training work outs. I am a personal trainer and I was having an extremely frustrating time loosing weight after the birth of my 3rd child. Yes, I washed my hair and conditioned it.
480448 tn?1426952138 Adopting lifestyle changes make a HUGE difference in the chance of developing pre-diabetes or diabetes. Also, if you have been diagnosed with pre-diabetes, NOW is the time to make those changes, to prevent the disease from progressing. Basic Prevention Tips: 1. Weight management. If you are overweight, try to shed some of those pounds. Obviously, the more, the better. If you are at an ideal weight, maintain it and try to avoid weight gain.
Avatar f tn She explained it with more detail and explained how it affects myself and my baby. She also helped me with a meal plan, a grocery list, and gave me tons of recipes. What matters is the total carbohydrates! I kept looking at the sugar... which is important too! But when I plan my meals out during the day I can only have so many carbs at one time. For breakfast I can only have 25 total carbohydrates. For snacks (you should have three snacks a day including one before bed) no more then 30.
649848 tn?1534637300 I'm wondering what diet plans others have tried and what success you had, whether or not you kept the weight off, etc. If you didn't keep the weight off, would you try that same diet plan again, if so, why; if not, why? I don't believe in giving up entire food groups, such as carbs, protein, fats, etc. I believe the body needs a healthy mix of all the food groups. I'd really appreciate any ideas ya'll might have.
8369322 tn?1397830269 I am looking for a diet plan that I can put into action to bring my Diabetes under control along with the medication I am taking.
325405 tn?1262293778 My doctor told me I've had problems losing weight the last couple years (haven't lost any really) because of PCOS (something about polycystic ovarian something or other) and because of my diabetes and insulin resistance. I can't take stuff that would speed up my metabolism or diet pills because I also have an autoimmune disease (mixed connective tissue disorder) and the doctor is afraid it might mess up my thyroid function or something so won't prescribe any weight loss medication.
Avatar f tn 500 Cal diet with HCG/Simeon Plan. This is my 7th day on the HCG/Simeon diet so I figured it would be a good time to compare them (since I made it 1 week on the non-HCG plan). I have felt very well the entire 7 days, no hunger pangs until the end of the day when I took no shot (yesterday). I am not miserable like I was on the diet w/out HCG. I have lost 5 lbs (net), even with the 2 loading days, and I'm pretty excited about how this is going.
973741 tn?1342346373 However, it is now known that type 2 diabetes can be reversible for many people if they change their diet to strictly limit carbs. Limiting carbs also makes type 1 diabetes much easier and safer to manage (smaller doses of insulin mean less risks of low blood sugars). How limited? It depends on personal tolerance. But definitely carbs will be limited to less than 25% of total daily energy.
Avatar n tn After seeing the doctor and getting on the right type and dose of insulin, then make an appointment with a nutritionist to plan a healthy diet. There are so many foods that you can enjoy as long as you understand how to take your insulin to cover what you eat. The muscle building and weight gain will come once you are in good control and get your energy back.
1734735 tn?1413781671 Unlike Swank's research that started in the late 1940's, this study complies with modern medical standards and is about to change the medical professions views on the role of diet in MS. The medical profession has accepted for years that diet plays a significant role in cardio vascular disease, stroke, diabetes and many more diseases. Now, they have a study that also confirms diet affects MS.
1282925 tn?1286415639 I think you can make this work without cooking 2 meals and the only thing I can see is that your hubby and son would need to switch to whole grain pasta. It's not so hard to keep skim milk in the fridge, even if your hubby and son drink whole milk. I'm sure they would also benefit from a good healthy salad; and the kidney beans is only one example of a "meat".
Avatar f tn I just found out I have pre diabetes and high cholesterol and am overweight. About 60 pounds overweight. Ugh...so upsetting..I am.determined to get this under control without meds. Please if anyone can suggest apps or anything else it would be appreciated.
Avatar f tn I'm going to have to disagree with some of the things mentioned here. First, no one is selling anything in relation to this; the diet plan is available free of charge on the website. Second, I don't believe the idea that it can't be valid because most doctors don't recommend it. Almost all of the doctors that I have come across don't put any emphasis on diet, in relation to most conditions, with the possible exception of diabetes.
Avatar n tn magkenmare, I am going to talk to my sister as soon as I can and then post again. I know that my mother is doing the South Beach diet, but my sis, because she has diabetes cannot follow it to a "t". She mentioned something like she is doing a variation of it. Please do not perceive me as saying your daughter should do that diet. I do really need to talk to my sister and find out exactly what has helped her to lose some lbs.
Avatar f tn Now who wouldn't feel better eating better? There might be something to it, and there might not, but it can't hurt to follow a healthy diet plan. It will only help. After all of this reading and researching, recognizing and minimizing my triggers, exercising gradually and regularly, and improving my diet and overall health have definitely helped. I may not have MS. Nobody knows what it is. It acts a lot like MS, and it might be, but I'm not on any DMDs and these changes have helped.
3060903 tn?1398568723 Fuhrman believes that nutrient-dense foods, which make up the base of this pyramid, are the most important part of your diet, helping your body thrive naturally. My favourite Doctor has aired on Dr. Oz Sept. 18, 2012 I've been looking for recipes from this Doctor and finally I've managed to get some on this program. Good luck with your nutritional goals. This has helped me tremendously.
733939 tn?1231776955 The doctor started you off with oral metformin and a diet plan for a good reason; to see if you listen to instructions. Failure to do so leads to insulin as the last resort. It's not hard to manage your diabetes but it does requires a lifestyle change. You have to rid yourself of all those old bad habits if you wish to be well. Good luck.

Avatar f tn It's not that I don't like the diet, it's that it doesn't exist -- the diet cited as Mediterranean isn't, as I keep repeating, there are different cultures all along the area and they don't eat the same but all tend to eat healthier than Americans do. But it's not a diet, and there are some problems in it, such as an extreme abundance of nightshades and so a lot of arthritis. That's why they did the nightshade studies in Italy -- the Mediterranean Diet.
Avatar f tn They have a food tracker and recipes on the ADA website- I'll check that out and I also plan to have a look at eMedTV Although I have not been diagnosed yet - I just want to be prepared.
Avatar f tn My doctor has recommended that I go on the Miami Mediterranean Diet; I've read the book, looked at the recipes and while I can see that it's an excellent way to go, it doesn't seem right for me because the recipes make too many servings and use a lot of ingredients that I don't keep on hand. It might be worth looking into though. The biggest thing to remember is that if you load up on veggies and fruits, you'll get filled up for, not a lot of calories.
Avatar n tn give them grains and they get what they have now, which are high rates of diabetes. But give that same diet to most other people and it won't work for them. I'm more interested in health than big muscles, though I too lift weights I don't add protein to my diet because I'm an American and Americans eat way too much protein as it is. Don't need any extra unless you want unnaturally large muscles. Which is fine, but it doesn't generalize to the rest of the population.
Avatar n tn That made a huge difference for me because I could see how food selection fit together to make a reasonable plan that I could follow. I also use recipes from the South Beach Diet, a few Atkins things, and find the magazine Light and Tasty very helpful. Good luck!
Avatar n tn I am still struggling to keep a lean, toned figure. Before my diabetes I had always been very lean and healthy, and had a very fast metabolism. My question is how does diabetes affect the way your body gains weight? Do you have any suggestions for losing fat? I have cut out a lot of the junk food I ate pre-diabetes and also make it a point to do aerobic exercise at least three times a week. I also keep my blood sugars pretty close to average, but occasionally they run high.
Avatar n tn hi, my name is Sara and i'm only 20 yrs old and i've been recently diagnosed with diabetes. i was just wondering if i was type 1 or type 2. when i first found out my blood sugar level was 485. now it's a little bit lower cuz i'm just eating greens. so, i heard from my doctor that i will most likely be type 1 because i'm not overweight and plus i'm young. i just wanted more information on who is most likely to have type 1.
