Diabetic Diet Guide - meats seem almost superfluous: So, it is pretty clear to us that we now have a good diabetic diet which is keeping our type 2 diabetes under control, lowered our LDL cholesterol, lowered our trigylcerides, lowered our blood pressure, made us drop the extra lbs... So, why is our diabetic diet system not loaded with high protein meat sources for all our calories? What sort of diabetic diet guide makes diabetic diet recommendations to eat dried fruits and even fresh fruits? What sort of diabetic diet guide says a good diabetic diet isn't top heavy with meats? Isn't a good diabetic diet an Atkins diet? Isn't a good diabetic diet then the absolute opposite of a vegetarian diabetic diet plan?
The answer lies in the calories to maintain a healthy weight (diabetes diet and exercise go hand in hand), and the need to have all of the nutrients we always (now somewhat laughably) assumed we were getting but weren't, and in the need as a type 2 diabetic to reform our LDL cholesterol, triglyceride levels and blood pressure levels to avoid what kills so many many diabetics - heart and cardiovascular disease complications of diabetes.
