DIETS, I think are a very evil word. We deprive ourselves of the foods we should be eating believeing that it will help reach a goal. So when you have reached that goal and you are no longer on your "diet" what then? Do you go back to eating the way you had before? What did you learn from this diet? We are human, how can you deprive your body of what it needs and think its good for you? What damage are you doing to yourself? Will your goal be worth it if your sick and cant enjoy it cause you made yourself sick? You dont need a diet, you need a life change. What are you eating you shouldnt be? How much do you excercise? How much do you sit around? I know Im asking a lot of questions but we wake up every morning with only one thought. What will we do today? Its how you answer that question that will make your day full of good or bad choices. Will I eat that piece of cake? Will I go to McDonalds today? If you answer yes then you have to ask yourself, why? What would happen if you woke up one morning and said to yourself that today is the day I will make good choices for myself. Do you think you would feel a sense of pride at the end of the day? Dont you think that would feel good? I know so many questions, only you can answer. for me the question was do I want to live, or die? The answer was easy, I want to live. Now what do I do to accomplish that goal? What do you do?

no it is not healthy for long at all. you need a combo of different veggies everyday, I think it is about 4-5 servings (?) and some fruit everyday, those fruits which do not spike your BS too much, all of us are different on those. You need protein and fiber preferably at every meal and in snacks, for those that tolerate it, whole grains everday, foods with calcium. I think to talk to a dietician might be best. the fish is good to have often, especially baked.

I have to question this so called "diet". I am not an expert however, you're missing a whole bunch of nutrients your body needs. You are eating no diary? Calcium especially for woman is important. I lost most of my stomach tissue and muscle due to Necrotizing fasciitis, and when I was in the hospital they made my intake of protein triple to have me get back to where my muscle and tissue should be at. And if you get bored quickly with diets,,I don't see this one lasting long for you. Good Luck!! :)

So is your goal to take as little insulin as possible ?

IronOre 2013-05-08 00:11:53 -0500 Report

Did somebody tell you that it is best to take as little insulin as possible ?
How much insulin are you on now ?

IronOre 2013-05-05 13:04:59 -0500 Report

I love tilapia, and can eat it without any problems. I bake it or pan fry it with Pam. I don't eat corn, it's one of the foods I've eliminated from my diet. It is a high starch veggie, loaded with carbs.

IronOre 2013-05-02 22:58:01 -0500 Report

Well, you need to be more specific about what a "salad" is !
Corn is grain loaded with carbs . . . need I say more ?
You did not mention what you drink.
Why are you eating just these foods ?
You also did not mention if you were diabetic, and what type.

lanessa 2013-05-03 19:57:56 -0500 Report

A healthy diet is determined based on your bodies need. What may be healthy for you may not work for anyone else. What you should do is sit down with a dietitian and work out a meal plan that works for you. Foods that you eat such as corn on the cob is a high carb food. Salad especially if you buy it ready made at a restaurant can be high in carbs, calorie and sodium. As for Tilapia, I don't buy it at all. I don't like it and my sisters cardiologist told her to never eat it because of the medications she takes.

Diabetes is not a one size fits all disease, foods that you eat may be good for you but for some of us, it could cause spikes in blood sugar. For instance there are some of us who can have corn while others can't. A meal plan devised by a dietitian would be based on the number of carbs your doctor said you can have per meal. My meal plan was developed by my neighbor who is a Certified/Registered dietitian and it is based on my carb intake per meal. Odds are it would not work for you.
