Very interesting, though most of the produce sections of stores in our areas have plenty in them worth avoiding; but that's nit-picking, isn't it? I will disagree with the recommendation for skim or low fat dairy. Nothing lower in fat will ever have the same taste as the original in the dairy case, period. After drinking whole milk for a while, drinking skim milk is like drinking water. And I, at least, have noticed a difference in how I respond to them.
(Caveat: not a diabetic, but with sometimes unstable blood sugar.) I generally use non-homogenized milk, and as the cream content by percentage inevitably goes down with each glass, I notice I'm hungrier earlier. Same when it comes to yogurt. (And I have no idea how low- or fat-free yogurt can be made. I make my own from whole milk with almost no problems, but I never successfully produced anything from reduced fat milk. Grainy on the bottom and water through the rest. Inedible, basically.)
