Ah yes – the new Diabetes initiative – 2017
Diabetes UK recommends that people with diabetes should try to eat a healthy balanced diet, as depicted in the Eatwell Guide, and to include starchy foods at every meal. Steer clear of cutting out entire food groups. It is recommended that everyone with diabetes sees a registered dietitian for specific advice on their food choices. Your GP can refer you to a registered dietitian.
“The best way to manage diabetes is by taking prescribed medications and by maintaining a healthy lifestyle that includes plenty of physical activity and a balanced diet that is low in saturated fat, salt and sugar and rich in fruit and vegetables, without completely cutting out any particular food groups.”
Read Diabetes UK’s review of the evidence on low-carb diets and their conclusions.
Unbelievable! “a balanced diet that is low in saturated fat, salt and sugar and rich in fruit”
Aaaargh. This is for DIABETICS.
