Good for you Barsal, you are going strong with good eating habits for health.

Radfin, I strongly encourage you to not eat rice as it is very high glycemic...even brown rice. Both rice and corn are the two most sugary grains. Even oats should be strongly limited; like once a week with what you have written about your condition. Have you ever tried buckwheat? Bob's Red Mill offers a buckwheat cereal that is very tasty, IMO. It is a great substitute for other breakfast cereals. Buckwheat isn't actually a grain, it's in the fruit family and is very low glycemic.

You could write your own cookbook if you want to but it's certainly not necessary as there are SO many cookbooks and web sites that deal with your issues.

I suggest going off gluten. Again, LOTS of help there too with foods, recipes, etc.

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

Ani, I enjoyed reading your response. This is one of the reasons I am in between the Low-Carb Plan and the Eating Clean Plan. I limit most fruits if I have banana, once in a blue moon, I have a half and one that is not very ripe. Mostly I will have strawberries or a kiwi. I have green veggies everyday. On occasion I will have a piece of squash. I have eliminated rice and pastas but will have quinoa and low carb bread every so often. I am not afraid to use a little butter or olive oil but I limit it to a pat or tbsp at a time. Honestly I am just doing my own thing but the weight is gradually coming off.

Thanks.

I have been following the FODMAPs diet for the past two months due to IBS, so I have already been off of processed and sugary foods. I have only been eating quinoa, oats and brown rice as my grains and now only in limited amounts due to carb counting. It's like a big chemistry experi-
ment between my blood sugar testing and my IBS reactions as I add back in certain foods to my diet. I am determined to get to a place where I know what I can eat, how much I can eat and to
know how to make great food that heals and sustains me (and tastes good to my family).

Yeah, Tosca doesn't take in those issues. In fact, she doesn't take in quite a few issues in my opinion.

My advice? Stay clear of starchy carbs which will raise blood sugar and insulin resistance. Get your healthy carbs from green veggies and a limited amount of other, sweeter veggies. Seriously limit (but don't completely eliminate) fruits.

Starchy carbs are white potatoes and even other potatoes. The other ones aren't quite as bad as the white ones but still, limit, limit, limit. Also root veggies (carrots, beets especially) are full of sugars. Again, limit them.

Stay completely away from all grains and white potatoes and you will be cutting out almost all the bad carbs. No bread, no pasta, no cereals, no "diet" sweet treats. You will be SO amazed at how great you feel if you do this. Of course, if you have been eating a lot of sugars and foods with starchy carbs and you go off cold turkey your body will have a tantrum and you might feel strange, even sick for a short while as those bad bacteria get starved out--they don't always leave without a fight. Work through that the best you can. Don't give in to their sugar cravings; you'll only encourage them to stay.

Join the "Nuts for Coconuts" team and the "Paleo Team" and learn some new, tasty ways of eating and baking using all REAL and natural foods. It's all the refined foods that have made us so sick and over-weight.

And stick with "clean" foods That is, foods that haven't been manipulated, changed, chopped into molecular parts, powdered, or have chemical additives that you can't even pronounce in them.

Good luck on your health journey.

Honestly RADFEN, I feel the Eat Clean diet also contains too many carbs for anyone. Diabetic or not. Eating clean though doesn't necessarily meanhaving to follow Tosca's guidelines. Clean eating has been been around a lot longer than Tosca's books. Anyhow, the Primal or Paleo lifestyle seems to be a cleaner choice for me if we are talking carbs.

I was looking over my copy of the Eat Clean Diet last night and so many of the recipes included dairy and/or were higher in carbs per serving than is recommended for a diabetic. Now that I have
several health issues going on all at once, I am looking at all recipes with a different perspective.
Will I need to write my own cookbook? I am meeting with a nutritionist next week through my health plan, but have a feeling that I will be given the standard diabetic info which does not take into account all of the other health issues and my desire to eat cleanly. Does anyone have any exper-
ience in this area?
