Besides eating more vegetables like I have been doing, maybe this is good advice for me. I found it on a website about controlling diabetes.
"The Mediterranean and low-carb diets resulted in greater weight loss. All of these diets emphasize vegetables, limited whole grains, legumes (such as beans), lean proteins, and small amounts of healthy fats, such as olive oil. The Mediterranean-style diet showed the greatest improvement in blood sugar control."
One thing I don't understand is this: I thought eating all the veggies would bring my blood sugar down. And I am using quinoa instead of rice. I have not been eating sweets. And the protein I have is nuts or plain meat like chicken breast meat.
