Hello. I just recently came across this article, which is published monthly in a publication called diatribe, located here - https://diatribe.org/ - and saw an article by Adam Brown, one of the writers, about the diabetes diet. He is a T1 diabetic and found a diet, or basically what he eats, that keeps your A1C within range. It’s not called anything but is very correct, the article is here - https://diatribe.org/diabetes-food-tricks-and-what-i-really-eat?utm_source=diaTribe&utm_campaign=fadd374d9c-d The thing is what’s in the carbs - fiber, I found that the higher the fiber content in the carb, the less impact it has on blood glucose and the fuller I feel. I’ve haven’t been completely on it yet because I’m still in the process of switching over and eating what I have first, then switching over. I have eaten the Chia pudding and can’t believe the difference on my blood sugar it makes.
I went to Walmart and bought a container of Chia seeds, which cost 8.96 for 2 lbs, and use 1/4 cup chia seeds and 1/2 cup water and mix those together along with 2 packets of Stevia and wait about 10 minutes for the seeds to soak up the water and become gel like and that’s all I put in it for now. I use it for a dessert for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You can add whatever you want to it to jazz up the taste if you want, just keep track of the carbs. It works out great. His article turned my attention to paying more attention to what makes up the carbs I eat. The more fiber in that serving of carbs I eat, the more fuller I feel and less impact on my glucose readings. Instead of my glucose readings going up and down like a roller coaster, like all my life, I have a way to minimize those up and downs. Read his article and see for yourself what a difference it can make. Also, sign up to get the monthly publication of diatribe and see what’s happening currently as far as diabetes goes.
