I am calling this Discussion ADA Information as it is Information I got from the American Diabetes Association. Following is the beginning of a note I sent to Gabby and after that will be more info for all to enjoy.
I saw my Doc again on the 2nd of this Month and they said I lost another 4 pounds since I was there in May. I am now down to 197.6 pounds I started back on insulin on the 2nd not liking it but Doc said it is necessary, I did get to keep my Victoza for now. I am not on here as much as I use to be. I have gotten me a box of information from the American Diabetes Association. It included a cookbook using 4 ingredients or less, using a lot of products that have several ingredients in them as the ingredients. LOL A book called Diabetes 911 an essential guide for any one with diabetes, the book 101 Tips on Nutrition for people with diabetes (Last Year I was putting the tips on here for everyone to see) I also got an invite to join The American Diabetes Association's Living With Type 2 Diabetes Program you could join by going online to www.diabetes.org/living, I also got several recipe cards, a wallet card for my Diabetes Info A booklet called Being Active to Feel Your Best, Booklet called Choose to Live Your Diabetes Survival Guide, Count Your Carbs: Getting Started, Nutrition in the fast lane Fast Facts about Fast Food, My Food Advisor Best Foods for You, Reading Food Labels A Handbook for people with Diabetes, Physical Activity the best move you can make, My Plate Planner, Helping Kids to be More Active, Paper on Sensible and Simple steps to Eating Less Added Sugars and More Healthy Carbs, A paper on Taking Control, Marsh Diabetes Care Program, Plus the introduction of the program (The Pharmacy part of it), a booklet on Portion Awareness Plate & Food Exchange Lists this one is from the Diabetes Education Program, Then I also got The Diabetes Advisor sheets as follows # 2, 8, 9, 11, & 12 Plus What can I eat? the diabetes guide to Healthy Food Choices, a paper on Diabetes Complications, paper on Your Glucose Meter and last but not least
The 4-Ingredient Diabetes Cookbook I first mentioned this above it is by Nancy S. Hughes So far I have found this cookbook very useful and meals on the table very quickly. Very little time spent in the kitchen both on cooking and cleanup. I am going over all of this information some more and copying all of the sections that I need to fill in so that I can update every 3-6 Months and be able to better control my Diabetes in the Future. I need to space out getting my Meds filled so as not to be without them in the future.
If you need more help with your Diabetes like I do then get online to www.diabetes.org and see what you can find to help you. I checked for the local office and then called them asking for just the Exchange List for Calories as I have a hard time figuring out Carbs and all that. Here is a little about the Cookbook they sent me Nancy S. Hughes wrote it and I found it very interesting that she calls it The 4-Ingredient Diabetes Cookbook as a lot of the Recipes she has done for us uses prepackaged foods in the ingredients. I will place some of the recipes here on our site making sure all know they come from this cookbook. On this Discussion I am going to talk about each item I get from the ADA, I hope they help each of us get what we need out of them. It has 13 Chapters ranging from Beverages to Desserts I will only share the Introduction from this Cookbook with all of you, there is a lot of useful information there for us to use with the Recipes out of this Cookbook.
