Hello Tiffany, I answered you by telephone but I think other people would have liked to hear my response. Actually, lots of diabetics suffer with gastroparesis...an slow emptying of the gut. Hence fiber would be helpful. Additionally, the fiber mix with fats as they pass through the stomach and hence reduces the amount of fat absorbed. More fat passes through the gut. Hence my expectation it my cholesterol levels would be helped. Now several weeks later with a packet of fiber at the beginning of each meal, my abdomen is flatter and my cholesterol numbers are dropping into a better range. I am also exercising more. Thanks for your comments and questions.
Spices!!!!Yes, cinnamon, cardamon, tumeric, cayenne, ginger, curry, and basil are the top recommendations. I want to do a whole blog or two on that one in May. If you have any other suggestions, let me know. I also recommend lots of legumes--beans, lentils, garbanzos...spice them up in a crock pot overnight and you won't miss eating meat, that much.
Sam. my wish is the same as yours. That is why I have dedicated my coaching work to helping others with the same desires. Let us do it together.
Dear friend, I am so sorry for my delay in responding. I have been out of town taking care of a very sick relative. But here I am. I am going to be doing a series on food very soon. But starting with the basics, I would recommend looking at the site for pcrm.org and fullplatediet.com Minimize your intake of white carbohydrates--white rice, white potatoes, white pastas, sugar and the like. Certain fruits are better than others. Also, check out the American Diabetes Association recommendations and look out especially for foods with low glycemic index...food that burn slowly. I have also chosen to minimize my intake of meat. It is not absolutely necessary but it a diet low in meats of all kinds is also lower in calories and fats which we want to avoid. More to come in May.
Today, while speaking with my cardiologist, he said something that really caused my ears to perk up. Until now, my Living Consciously messages have focused on defining diabetes, paying close attention to what and when we eat, and media statistics.... Continue reading
