EATING WELL WITH TYPE 2 DIABETES – Diabetes Recipes.

EATING WELL WITH TYPE 2 DIABETES
Food plays a crucial role in determining our health, vitality, and well-being. Various foods we eat are broken down into glucose, which passes into the bloodstream.
Our blood glucose level should not become too high or too low, so to regulate it, the pancreas produces insulin. If you have Type 2 diabetes, you’ll know that your pancreas isn’t producing enough insulin, or the insulin isn’t doing its job properly.
(If you have Type 1 diabetes, your body isn’t making any insulin at all.) It is important for everyone to eat healthily, but when you have Type 2 diabetes, diet is even more relevant. Choosing the right foods will help you to manage your condition and reduce the risk of other health problems associated with diabetes.
In one study, people with Type 2 diabetes were able to reduce their blood glucose levels by an average of 25 percent just by following a simple diet plan similar to the one we recommend. Although people often talk about healthy and unhealthy foods, there is no such thing as a good or a bad food: it is the balance of foods that you eat throughout the day that is important.

HOW THIS BOOK CAN HELP:

The recipes in this book are designed to help you achieve a healthy, balanced diet that includes wholegrains, low-GI carbohydrates, lean protein, dietary fiber, low-fat dairy products, and plenty of vegetables and fruit. They are also lower in sodium, fat and sugar. All this equals a great diet, whether you have Type 2 diabetes or not.

Where the book goes further is in providing “Guidelines per serving” for each recipe (see right), which show you whether the dish is relatively high (3 dots), medium (2 dots) or low (1 dot) in GI, calories, saturated fat, and sodium—the four key dietary areas to watch when you have Type 2 diabetes.
