I cannot understand why the American Diabetes Association tells patients it is OK to eat sugar.
Did you read that right?
Read the current recommendations.
Here are some highlights:
•Foods containing carbohydrate from whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and low-fat milk should be included in a healthy diet.
•With regard to the glycemic effects of carbohydrates, the total amount of carbohydrate in meals or snacks is more important than the source or type.
•As sucrose does not increase glycemia to a greater extent than isocaloric amounts of starch, sucrose and sucrose-containing foods do not need to be restricted by people with diabetes; however, they should be substituted for other carbohydrate sources or, if added, covered with insulin or other glucose-lowering medication.
•Non-nutritive sweeteners are safe when consumed within the acceptable daily intake levels established by the Food and Drug Administration.
As a physician, I do NOT tell me patients that have sugar problems to eat more sugar. That is ridiculous.
Eliminate the sugar.
Regain your life and health.
