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.
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.
