Diabetes Diet Alternative

There was a reader here recently, Somer, who liked several posts.  Somer is another blogger who writes about vegans; the benefits of being a vegetarian.  Now, folks, I am not a vegan, but I know there are some of you who would consider it – and there are a lot of benefits.

What are those benefits?  Very low carbs if you pay attention to what you are eating.  There are a lot of fruits that are high in sugar, and therefore high in carbs, so some care is needed.  Very high in fiber.  Loaded with vitamins and minerals.  As a result, if you choose to be a vegan, your blood sugar should come down pretty fast.  And, vegans can eat out almost anywhere – big plus.

If you think you want to be a vegan, or even if you want great suggestions on how to prepare vegetables, you have to take a look at Somer’s blog.  She has a sense of humor that is really refreshing and an approach that is gentle.  Vegetables are probably (should be) going to be a big part of your diet if you are going to manage the disease.  Why not make them as good to eat as possible?


I am not a doctor or health professional. I am just a guy who is working everyday to control Type 2 Diabetes. My goal is to offer hope, help and solutions for day-to-day living for the diabetic. The disease can be controlled. It can be managed. And, you can do it!

    Phil! Wow, thanks for this! I’ve just put a new page up on my blog about how to get started if you want to go veg. http://vedgedout.com/ready-set-go-2/

    I would also highly recommend Dr. Furhman’s Eat to Live. I think it would be a great fit for diabetics.

    Best of Luck with your health and thanks again for the plug, it really helps since I just started my blog last week 🙂
