A couple Day's ago,I received a packet of literature from the ADA.Enclosed was a couple of Diabetes Advisor Newsletters.A couple things TOTALLY blew me mind!
In Diabetes Advisor 11 it says the top 3 myths about eating and Diabetes.
Myth 1: Starches & Sweets are off limits for People with Diabetes.Fact: No Foods are forbidden.Carbohydrate Foods,including Foods such as Bread,Rice & Corn,are part of a balanced Meal Plan.For all Carbohydrate Foods including Sweets,it's the amounts that count.
Myth 2: The Diabetic Diet is boring & hard to follow.Fact: There's no such thing as a single Diabetic Diet.These Day's,Dieticians help People design their own Meal plans to include there favorite Foods.If you have trouble living with your Meal Plan,you can talk wth your Dietician about making changes.
Myth 3: You need to buy expensive Dietetic Foods when you have Diabetes.Fact:There's no need to buy special Foods for Healthful eating.People with Diabetes can eat everyday Foods that the whole Family eats.Choosing more non-Starchy Vegetables can improve everyone's Health.
Diabetes Advisor 2 says:
Myth 4: "Now that I have Diabetes,I shouldn't eat Sugar or Carbohydrates." Fact:These Day's,People with Diabetes can eat Sweets,Carbohydrates or any other Food & still keep Blood Glucose levels on target.It's the amount that counts.A Dietician can help you design a Meal plan that includes your favorite Foods.
I'm thinking what is the ADA trying to do kill off People with Diabetes?Seriously it went through my Head!
