I kid you not! Eating advice from the NHS

Leave a comment

I just wrote a post about eating for diabetes. I recommended that people fielding diabetes do NOT follow NHS advice.

I find this almost criminal….

Eating for diabetics as advised to us here in the UK.

Base meals upon starchy carbohydrate

The NHS advises people, including those with diabetes, to base meals around food with starchy carbohydrate such as:

  • Potatoes
  • Cereals
  • Pasta
  • Rice
  • Bread

Have plenty of fruit and vegetables

The Department of Health recommends we eat at least 5 portions of fruit and vegetables a day. The 5 portions should ideally be different fruit and vegetables.

Fruit juice counts as one portion, and a smoothie can be up to 2 portions.

I kid you not.

I'm someone also pounding the Path, just like you.. I'm retired, going into Old Age and loving my life. I'm hoping to remain happy and well for as long as possible. Old Age is not SO bad - yet!

Please do comment! That's part of the fun...
