Why is there so little knowledge about carbohydrates and blood sugar control? You would think the American Diabetes Association and every doctor, diabetes educator and, clinic would be shouting the information I am giving you about carbohydrates, from the house tops. They are not! If I were running a supermarket, I would have a section devoted to the proper diabetic diet and weight control as they are the same. I would put a big sign there with handouts loaded with information. Yes you can read ANGER into this post. Diabetics are bound to fail as they are not getting the correct information.
I ask a certified dietitian that works for a local supermarket chain about this. I sent her the ADA's food pyramid (no research done) and one from a University in California who did research.
The researched one put grains on the very top. The ADA grains on the widest part, the bottom.
I sent a copy of both to this dietitian. She dismissed me and said she couldn't help me.
