As your friendly neighborhood registered dietitian, we need to talk.
I'll make this pretty simple: there is a LOT of misinformation out there when it comes to eating with diabetes. What are the best or worst foods for diabetics is probably in the top number of searches on the internet. In one corner, you’ve got the ones who won’t touch carbohydrates, since carbs will skyrocket your blood sugars. In the other, you’ve got the ONLY carbers, who will eat minimal fat and protein since they find that the easiest for them.
Most likely, you are somewhere in the middle but also confused as hell. You hear people on one end shaming the other and vice versa. This is a ridiculous practice and does not help anyone.
Here’s what you need to know:
I’ve had clients who eat 400g of carbs per day and I’ve had clients who eat 25g of carbs per day. Both with A1c of 5.9. I’m here to assure you, this can be done.
If you FINALLY want to be in control of your BGs, once and for all, and live the life you’ve always wanted with diabetes, click here and I’ll personally invite you to a call with me to see if you’re a good fit!
