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:
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.
