The "Diabetic" Diet:Diabetes and Hormone Center of the Pacific:"Any food that is high in any type of carbohydrate will raise blood glucose levels soon after a meal. Whether a food contains one ounce of sugar (natural or refined) or one ounce of starch, it will raise blood glucose the same amount, because the total amount of CARBOHYDRATE is the same. Although a glass of fruit juice and the same amount of sugary soda may seem like a "good" versus "bad" choice, each will raise blood glucose about the same amount. This information regarding the amount of carbohydrate in different foods is the center of a nutrition management tool for people with diabetes called Carbohydrate Counting. Foods high in carbohydrates include starches such as rice, pasta, breads, cereals, and similar foods; fruits and juices; vegetables; milk and milk products; and anything made with added sugars, such as candies, cookies, cakes, and pies. The goal of a diabetes nutrition plan is to provide a mixture of fats, carbohydrates, and proteins at each meal at an appropriate calorie level to both provide essential nutrients as well as create an even release of glucose into the blood from meal to meal and from day to day. A Registered Dietitian assesses the nutritional needs of a person with diabetes and calculates the amounts of fat, protein, carbohydrate, and total calories needed per day, and then converts this information into recommendations for amounts and types of foods to include in the daily diet. The total number of meals and snacks and their timing throughout the day can differ for each person, based on his or her nutritional needs, lifestyle, and the action and timing of medications"

Diabetes meal planning:Mayo Clinic:"A meal plan is simply a guide that helps you choose the right kinds and amounts of food to eat. The first step in meal planning is to establish a routine of eating meals and snacks at regular times every day. Some people can keep their blood sugar in good control simply by eating three regular meals a day and avoiding too many sweets. Others need to follow a more deliberate plan, eating only the recommended number of servings from each food group every day, based on their individual calorie needs. If you haven't been following any particular eating plan and want to develop a healthy one, start by keeping a log of everything you eat. You may be eating more than you realize or fewer fruits and vegetables than you'd like. After you've assessed your eating patterns, you and a dietitian can develop a meal plan based on your food preferences and your recommended daily calories."

ABOUT THE MAJOR NUTRIENTS IN THE DIABETIC DIET:dietsite.com:"CARBOHYDRATES are made up of simple sugars, complex carbohydrates, and fiber. Simple carbohydrates are commonly known as sugars, sources of simple carbohydrates include table sugar, candies and other sweets, sodas and bakery goods. The sugar in these foods is in a form that is absorbed easily by the body, as opposed to the slower-digesting complex carbohydrates. Complex carbohydrates include all the complex starches and fiber, such as those found in grains, cereals, breads and starchy vegetables like potatoes, corn, peas and beans. Milk, fruit and vegetables also contribute significant amounts of carbohydrate in the diet."
http://www.dietsite.com/diets/diabetes/diabeticdiets/about%20the%20nutrients%20in%20%20the%20diabetic%20diet.htm

Choosing good foods-glycemic index chart included:webgate.net:"Most of us know that we should limit or intake of fried, fatty foods and try to eat lean sources of meat but did you know that not all carbohydrates are created equal? It's true, and some of the information below may surprise you. By choosing your carbohydrates wisely, you will be able to better control your blood sugar levels, thereby decreasing the peaks and valleys that we experience in our energy levels throughout the day.The Glycemic Index rates how fast carbohydrates break down into glucose and increase blood sugar levels. Foods are listed on a scale from Low to Very High. A Very High listing means blood sugar will rise rapidly. Table sugar (sucrose) has a Very High listing. To maintain stable blood sugar levels you should try to use Low to Medium glycemic carbohydrates."
http://www.webgate.net/~welchiro/choosing.html

The glycemic index and other diet considerations:Rick Mendosa:"The glycemic index ranks foods on how they affect our blood sugar levels. This index measures how much your blood sugar increases in the two or three hours after eating. The glycemic index is about foods high in carbohydrates. Foods high in fat or protein don't cause your blood sugar level to rise much. A lot of people still think that it is plain table sugar that people with diabetes need to avoid. The experts used to say that, but the glycemic index shows that even complex carbohydrates, like baked potatoes, can be even worse. When you make use of the glycemic index to prepare healthy meals, it helps to keep your blood sugar levels under control. This is especially important for people with diabetes, although athletes and people who are overweight also stand to benefit from knowing about this relatively new concept in good nutrition."

ADA issues new food and diet guidelines for kids:Children with diabetes:"In the January 2002 issue of Diabetes Care, the American Diabetes Association published revised guidelines for food and diet as it applies to both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. In its recommendations, the ADA laid out the following goals: For youth with type 1 diabetes, to provide adequate energy to ensure normal growth and development, integrate insulin regimens into usual eating and physical activity habits. For youth with type 2 diabetes, to facilitate changes in eating and physical activity habits that reduce insulin resistance and improve metabolic status. For pregnant and lactating women, to provide adequate energy and nutrients needed for optimal outcomes. For older adults, to provide for the nutritional and psychosocial needs of an aging individual. For individuals treated with insulin or insulin secretagogues, to provide self-management education for treatment (and prevention) of hypoglycemia, acute illnesses, and exercise-related blood glucose problems. For individuals at risk for diabetes, to decrease risk by encouraging physical activity and promoting food choices that facilitate moderate weight loss or at least prevent weight gain"
http://www.childrenwithdiabetes.com/d_0j_214.htm

Eating healthy with diabetes:Healthcite:"Contrary to popular myth, having diabetes doesn't mean you have to start eating specialized foods or follow a highly detailed and boring diet plan. For most people, having diabetes simply translates into variety and moderation eating more of certain foods, such as fruits, vegetables and grains, which are high in nutrients and low in fat and calories, and less of others, such as animal products and sweets. It's the same eating plan recommended for all Americans. If you have diabetes, you may have heard the term glycemic index, or GI, which is a measurement of the effect that a food has on blood sugar specifically the ability of a food to raise blood sugar within 2 to 3 hours after eating. Some dietitians have used GI as a tool for developing meal plans for diabetes and weight loss for many years. GI pertains primarily to dietary carbohydrates, rather than protein or fats."

The Diabetic Diet and Understanding Food Groups:Endocrine Web Inc:"Diet is very important in diabetes. There are differing philosophies on what is the BEST diet but below is a guideline with some general principles. Most people with diabetes find that it is quite helpful to sit down with a dietician or nutritionist for a consult about what is the best diet for them and how many daily calories they need. It is quite important for diabetics to understand the principles of carbohydrate counting and how to help control blood sugar levels through proper diet. Below are some general principles about the diabetic diet.Most of the carbohydrate we eat comes from three food groups: starch, fruit and milk. Vegetables also contain some carbohydrates, but foods in the meat and fat groups contain very little carbohydrate"
http://www.endocrineweb.com/diabetes/treatment.html

Snacks: A Healthy Necessity in a Diabetic Diet:Diabetic-Lifestyle:"Snacks play a very important role in the daily life of a person with diabetes, particularly those with type 1 diabetes and insulin-requiring type 2 diabetes. For these people between-meal and bedtime snacks are essential to keep blood glucose levels as close to normal as possible and to help prevent low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). Wherever you go you should always carry a supply of snacks to eat in case of low blood sugar -- we keep snacks in our purse or briefcase, in the glove compartment of our car, in our office desk drawer, and in the sports bag that we carry to the exercise gym.Here's a list of snacks that can be purchased at most supermarkets calculated to supply 12 to 15 grams of carbohydrate or 1 carbohydrate (1 bread/starch) exchange"
http://www.diabetic-lifestyle.com/articles/may98_cooki_1.htm

Diabetes Control Center The EASY DIET:Diabetes Control Center:"The 1200 calorie diet recommended in some programs call for 5 starch, 3 fruit, 2 milk, 1-2 vegetable, 4 meat and 3 fat servings per day. If I ate like that, my blood sugar would be 1200! Our experience with type 2 diabetes at the Diabetes Control Center indicates that a more severe carbohydrate restriction is needed if one is to control weight and blood sugar. Children and people with type 1 diabetes are another story and should not follow these restrictions "
http://www.dr-diabetes.com/easy_diet.htm

Knowledge Goes a Long Way in the Kitchen:Diabetic diet and recipes.com:"Time invested in learning about healthful eating as it relates to your diabetes will leave your taste buds satisfied and assist in keeping blood sugar under control. Take time early on to educate yourself; you'll be surprised to find that eating a diabetic diet will become second nature rather quickly. You'll know what foods are best for you when you're experiencing low blood sugar and also which foods are most likely to result in a high blood sugar count.The thought of having to convert to eating a diabetic diet can be intimidating, especially to someone who is newly diagnosed with diabetes."
http://www.diabetic-diet-and-recipes.com/index.php3

SOUL FOOD RECIPES CAN BE MODIFIED FOR THOSE WITH DIABETES:Sandra Avant:"African-Americans who have non-insulin dependent diabetes do not have to give up the taste of soul food completely. Adjustments can be made to keep diets ethnically appropriate and healthful, according to a registered dietitian and professor with the Texas Agricultural Extension Service. "The method of cooking and ingredients can be modified to maintain flavor," said Dr. Mary Kinney Bielamowicz, a member of the cultural diversity committee of the American Diabetes Association- Texas Affiliate. "But persons with diabetes should first check with their doctor or dietitian before they began altering recipes." Today, one out of 15 African-Americans have diabetes, according to the American Diabetes Association. There are more than 30 million African-Americans -- 12 percent of the population -- in the United States."
