The 62-page document is posted here:

Here’s a quick overview of Diabetes UK’s conclusions:

Foods to eat more of: vegetables, fruit, lean meat, fish (particularly oily fish), whole grains, nuts, and legumes

Foods not to worry about: eggs, dairy (particularly fermented foods like yogurt, without added sugar), tea, and coffee

Foods to eat less of: red and processed meat, potatoes, salt, refined (processed) carbs, sugar-sweetened beverages; very notably, these guidelines have ruled that refined carbs increase risk for type 2 diabetes – a breakthrough conclusion not yet adopted by many other organizations!

I agree with Steve, not sure why one would avoid red meat as it relates to diabetes, same with salt. Seems they are linking BP risks with diabetes risks without saying so. I wonder when the ADA will get with this program.

red meat? not sure why I'd avoid that
salt is a personal thing. many people eating a low carb diet that avoid processed/packaged foods can actually become sodium deficient. I struggle to get enough sodium and test consistently low in sodium.
otherwise … yea!
