Instead of eating cookies, cake and soft drinks-I try to keep handy apples, berries, pears -these carbs have fiber to slow down the absorportion of glucose.
I used to love fruit juices, like orange juice and grape juice-but, I learned juices contain concentrated amounts of fruit sugar causing my bg # to shoot sky high-Now, I drink lots of ice cold water..
I used to snack on raisins or dried apricots, but find it has too many super concentrated natural sugars.
I used to eat white rice-switched to brown rice or wild rice and whole grain breads…try to stay away from white carbs like white bread and pasta.
I used to eat high fat cuts of meat-but now I know they are high in saturated fats..now, I eat lean proteins like chicken (skinless) fish, salmon, tuna in water and lean beef.
I used to love fried foods like french fries, etc…now, I know fried foods have too many calories and fats packed inside.
I know if I don't make the right food choices, diabetes will pick up its speed on my body causing me all sorts of complications.
It's like a food fight everyday!!
