THE LOW CARB LIFE: A DIET FOR DIABETICS

Introduction:

Several years ago, I was diagnosed with type II diabetes. I tried taking Glucophage, but had awful side effects. My stomach was a mess and I practically lived in the bathroom. It was horrible. I went to my doctor and she gave me two choices - totally change my diet or go to insulin shots. Of course, I chose the change in diet, but not happily. I have always been a junk food freak and you could tell it by my weight. When I first changed my diet I weighed about 300 pounds, but by changing my diet I have taken off close to 100 pounds and kept it off. My sugar level and blood pressure are both under control and I feel so much better. I still eat out and enjoy food, but I try to make better choices on foods. I had to come to terms with the fact that this was not just a diet to control my weight, but a permanent change in my eating habits. The first month I felt like I was about to starve because the low carb recipes available were just plain disgusting or not filling, so I created my own. I loved pizza, pasta and all the things that weren't allowed on the diet, and I craved them. I actually had a crying fit the first day of my diet because I wanted a hot fudge cake so bad! I learned to alter recipes so well that my husband didn't realize he was eating sugar free and low carb most of the time. Most of the recipes are either low carb or use foods that are low glycemic index foods that a diabetic can eat more easily. It was easy once you learned a few simple tricks.

Before you make any big changes to your diet consult your doctor! Do not stop taking any medication without your doctor’s permission! Do not do any large changes in your exercise program without your doctor’s permission!

Simple Changes With Big Results:

Drink diet drinks or water instead of sweet drinks.

Cut out white bread and eat 100% whole wheat instead. (Remember if it doesn't say 100% whole wheat -it isn't!)

Eat whole wheat noodles instead of regular noodles.

Avoid high glycemic index foods such as: sugar, white flour, white rice, potatoes, corn, carrots, pineapple, watermelon and dried fruits. They shoot your sugar straight up.

Use lots of spices to replace sugars and salt. (If you have blood pressure problems, try Salt Sense it doesn't have a funny taste to it and only gives you half the amount of sodium that you would normally use.)

I said to avoid dried fruits, but have your doctor check your potassium level. Research shows that most diabetics and people with high blood pressure tend to have low potassium. I eat one banana or small box of raisins each day to make sure my potassium is high enough. I found out about this when my mother had a heart attack due to low potassium. Since then, I have been very careful.

Walk at least 30 minutes a day. Even if you walk in 5 minute spurts very slowly, walk 30 minute a day. It helps to lower sugar level and keeps you healthier. Remember the more muscle mass that you have, the higher your metabolism.

SAMPLE RECIPE:


Chili and Beans:
Serves: about 6 servings depending on how long it is cooked

Ingredients:
1 pound of beef cut into small in squares, 1 pound ground beef or 1 pound ground pork
1 large diced onion
1 diced green bell pepper (optional)
2-14.5 ounce cans of diced tomatoes
2-8 ounce cans of tomato sauce
3 cans of kidney beans (light or dark) that have been drained
3 T tomato paste
2 T Chili powder
1 T Garlic Powder
1 T Onion powder
1 T Salt
1/2 TO 1 T Pepper
Red pepper flakes (optional)


Directions:
Cook beef until browned, drain off excess oil and put into a large cooking pot. Add all other ingredients, and bring to a boil on medium high. Stir the chili often so that it doesn’t stick. I always cook mine in a non-stick pot. Reduce heat to medium and cook for at least one hour before serving. It tastes best if you reduce the heat to low after an hour and allow it to cook for another hour or two before you eat it
