What do you mean when you say you are on a particular type of diet? Or when you say that you exercise diet control? It simply means, your body has certain unwanted stuff within the system, which needs to be expelled. Alternatively, it also means that your body has the short supply of certain things most wanted by it.
You control both above situations through diet. Your correct diet can build you. Your wrong diet can break you!
When a person is suffering from diabetes, it means that his body is not able to produce the required quantity of insulin to maintain the blood sugar levels within the body. Now you need to do the needful for the additional insulin through dietary exercises.
The other alternative is medication, such as daily shots of insulin or pills!
The rules of diabetic diet are straight and simple. Stop the consumption of alcohol, sweets and fat. You need to add a number of nutritious foods into a diabetic diet. Changing the lifestyles is also a part of the diet.
Avoid all types of foods that are creamed and fried. Don’t overload your body with fats. Similarly butter, cheese and mayonnaise are totally barred for diabetic patient. In short, any type of food that contains high amount of sugar and carbohydrates should be given up once and for all. Especially, if you wish to control your diabetes early!
In short, calories count is your watchword. Stay away from meat, whole milk dairy products and egg. Give a big way to fruits and vegetables. Here I mean to say the seasonal vegetables. Give up junk food and preserved food (even if it is fruits and vegetables) once for all.
There is no official menu for a diabetic patient. You have to make your own food chart through trial and error methods, consulting your family doctor. Sprouted grains are good for you.
The reference to diet for a diabetic person would not be complete without reference to physical exercises. Physical exercising is the food for the body. Walking, breathing exercises and swimming are good in the control of diabetes.
Finally, I am sharing a golden secret with you. Take raw curry leaves in some quantity, everyday morning on the empty stomach. Take it for six months at least. Even the hereditary diabetes will vanish once for all! Take note to wash them thoroughly before eating.
