What Are The Best Diets For Diabetes?
Best Diabetes Diets
The Best Diabetes Diets are the ones that are not really diets, but actually smart nutritious meal planning. You don’t even have to avoid the foods you love and crave, just make sure the timing is right and you can have the best of both worlds (the food you love, while maintaining healthy blood sugar levels.) If fact, recent research has proven that if you eat in the proper order, you include your comfort foods as well.
Diabetic Meal Planning
Here are the diabetes food types and order of consumption:
- Protein Source
- Non-Starchy Vegetables
- Healthy Fats
- Dairy Foods
- Starchy Vegetables
- Fruits and Sweets
Healthy Protein Sources
Begin by including a good protein source. If you’re a Flexatarian (eating all types of foods), then your optimum protein sources are humanely raised and antibiotic free eggs, beef, pork, bison, buffalo, north Atlantic seafood (because of excess radiation in the pacific now) and cage free chicken. Plus feel free to add in any of the vegan proteins, as a variety is actually best for the body. You can also include an Organic Whey Protein that you can blend into a delicious smoothie or add to soups.
If you are wanting to choose healthy vegan protein sources like kale, spinach, broccoli and legumes. Also choose high protein sprouts and grasses, nuts and seeds, as they are a healthy and tasty type of healthy protein and fat source. I recommend including a Green Superfood Blend, as it will give you such a clean source of energy that is diabetic healthy.
You can also add Organic Hemp Seed Protein, Chia Seed, Organic Greens, and Fermented Organic Soy foods (Soy needs to be fermented to be healthy.) You can also get an Organic Vegan Protein Blend and and sprinkle over your soups and salads or add to a delicious fruit smoothie!
Healthy Non-Starchy Vegetables
Next get a good non-starchy form of vegetable, like salad greens, green beans, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, chard, celery, spinach, cucumber or cabbage. Also add a little garlic, onion, leek, bell pepper and a dash of cayenne or turmeric (natural blood sugar and blood pressure lowering foods.)
You can eat these either before your protein, with your protein source or after. When you eat these two categories of foods first, it helps prevent your body from generating a insulin response because of simple sugars.
The healthy fats can consist of organic butter, ghee, coconut oil, real olive oil, grapeseed oil, hemp oil, almond oi or avocado oil. Plus a moderate amount of natural animal proteins if you’re a flexatarian. It’s actually healthier to cook with butter or lard than margarine’s or processed cooking oils! You can also add some health Organic Omega 3 Fats in supplement form if you can’t get it naturally in your diet.
Include some dairy foods if you’re a flexatarian or a vegetarian. Try and get organic whenever possible. Look for “no RBST growth hormone” and no “antibiotic” milk products. From free range and grass fed cows is optimum and health nourishing. If your dairy products are not grass fed then they most likely fed GMO Foods as feed, particularly low quality corn meal.
The same stuff of which is made High Fructose Corn Syrup. They are both highly unhealthy to the animal, as well as those that consume the animal products. It’s a win/win when you choose healthy and humane food sources. Your body can tell the difference. The better the fuel you put into your body, the better it will respond for you, and the younger you will look, as the proteins are much healthier!
Now you can include your starchy vegetables like corn and carrots, legumes like beans and peas, and root vegetables like sweet potatoes, potatoes, beets, etc. This little trick can save you from having a glycemic response and even cause you to lose excess belly fat. The trick is try and include less than 30 grams of simple, high glycemic index carbohydrates at one sitting. You can spread it out and you’re well on your way to insulin freedom.
Fruits and Sweets
Finally, you can include your fruits, sweets and dessert type foods (including that yummy donut, pie or cake.) Make sure everything fits on one medium size plate. You can always get seconds a few hours later. You can get some healthy Organic Pure Snacks when you’re on the go, and not miss a beat.
The last thing you want is to eat what you think is the right foods but end up with pancreatic cancer or heightened insulin resistance! You really will want to choose Organic Nutrition as much as you possibly can as the chemicals in conventional produce are extremely harmful to your Gastro-intestinal (GI) tract and whole body. You will not only avoid insulin resistance but also allowing viruses, heavy metals and toxins into your body. You’re reading this because you care about your health, not to damage it further.
You should try to eat 4-6 small/medium sized meals, rather than a 1-3 large meals per day. These will not only help keep your blood glucose levels in the normal range, but will also keep your metabolism up and harmful cortisol levels down.
For a rapid kickstart feel free to add some of the Diabetes Herbs and Diabetes Glucose Control Formulas to your daily meals and you’ll be well on your way to diabetes and insulin independence for good! You’ll also benefit by a shrinking waist line and healthier body and mind!
