Many times patients suffering from diabetes and type 2 diabetes are devastated and frustrated with the idea of diabetes diets. There are a variety of diabetes diets and each diet promoter claims his/hers to be the best.
You can obtain information from Google search engine on why people suffering from type 2 diabetes get frustrated on the issue of diabetes diets. One of the websites talked of giving diabetes diet recommendations based on the American Diabetes Association guidelines. Some of the recommendations they gave are: more consumption of starch, eat 5 fruits and vegetables on a daily basis, and moderate consumption of sweets. In addition, they said that one should take a cold cereal with skim milk and a bagel with one teaspoon of jelly applied on it.
The following categories of food are suitable hence the best for patients suffering from type 2 diabetes:
- Cold cereal- it's rich in carbohydrates hence explosive for blood sugar. To prove this, try taking a bowl then test your blood sugar after about 2 hours.
- Skim milk- it's rich in carbohydrates as well. You shouldn't attempt getting rid of the fat in the milk because this fat reduces the release of carbohydrate sugars from the milk and the cereal.
- Bagels- they are rich in carbohydrates and therefore explosive to levels of sugar in the blood.
- Jelly- contains entirely sugar which is applied on top of a carbohydrate bomb.
The old food guide pyramid is the source of this diabetes diet information and experts are paid by patients suffering from type 2 diabetes for this information. Why would a patient suffering from diabetes or type 2 diabetes be advised to consume such huge amounts of carbohydrates? The rate people are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in the United States is high, yet this kind of information is taught to diabetics.
