Discovering Foods - Patience and Learning Required

How do you find out what foods help you?

There are many foods out there which once you know of their possible link to diabetes and blood glucose control, you can research and learn more about. However, it's a bit of the chicken and the egg as far as finding them if you don't know there might be a link in the first place.

It sounds almost foolish now, knowing what I know now, but in spite of attending diabetes clinic sessions, reading diabetes books, talking with my doctors, and doing research online, when I look back to the first months after I had been diagnosed as a type 2 diabetic and even after that time, I was woefully ignorant about many things - including what foods as part of a diabetic diet would help me the most.

You aren't alone in being lost this way. I sure was, even though at the time I wasn't even really aware of how much I didn't know!

One of the major goals of the Diabetic Life Diet website is to collect for you in one place all of this disparate information - and, whenever possible, to verify it as to its reliability and truthfulness. One of the major problems, and what can be very discouraging, is sorting out the scams and false promises of 'quick fixes' and instant diabetes cures which are peddled both in books and more and more on the internet.

So how do you find out what foods will help as part of your diabetic diet? As the sections here will get filled out, you'll be able to use the Diabetic Life Diet food lists as a starting point. Always, if you hear or read about something that sounds reasonable to try, give it a shot in moderation and following the guidelines described here in how we test foods for blood glucose control ourselves.
