Couldn't find what you looking for?


I am really upset because my doctor was angry with me.


I am sorry that you are having difficulties with your diabetic diet and you have trouble with your food cravings.  You are only human and it’s going to be a challenge for you to modify your eating habits.  You can begin by taking it slow. First of all, try to cut back only on the potato chips.  Find a healthy alternative to replace them with.  Once  you can overcome the potato chip habit, then you can cut back on the Cheetos.  You don’t need to eliminate them out of your diet forever.  You can just choose a time of day you will have them and try to eat a  healthier carbs the rest of the day.  This will make a big difference in your blood sugars and your A1c when you can stay within your carb schedule and eat better carbs, preferably low glycemic foods that will not raise your blood sugar. Another thing to improve your blood glucose levels is exercise.  You can walk 30 minutes a day and it will lower your blood glucose significantly.  You can start slow with this as well if you haven’t exercise in a while.  Start with 10 minutes a day for a few days and work your way up, increasing as much as you can.  If you  exercise and modify your eating as I described, your A1c will significantly be reduced.
