Healthy Eating and Diabetes
Greetings from Dr. Thorburn:
In last week’s email, I mentioned that a change to a healthier diet can contribute to preventing diabetes and keeping prediabetes from becoming type 2 diabetes.
But where do you start?
It’s a good idea to take a close look at your diet to get a sense of what you may be eating that is causing your blood sugar to fluctuate and spike. Keeping a food diary for an entire week can be very revealing. Write down everything you eat or drink and what time of day you ingest it. Then you will have a good record for your own review that you can share with your doctor.
I highly recommend the book The Zone by Dr. Barry Sears for solid information on what to eat so that the blood sugar does not roller coaster, which can lead to diabetes. The Zone Diet was developed by Dr. Sears more than 30 years ago to reduce diet-induced inflammation. The primary ingredients are low-fat protein, colorful carbohydrates, and fat that is low in both saturated fat and omega-6 fats. The secret is balancing these ingredients to get the appropriate hormonal responses at each meal. According to Dr. Sears, the less white (white bread, white rice, white pasta, and white potatoes) you put on your plate, the less cellular inflammation you are going to create. Research suggests that inflammation inside the body plays a role in the development of type 2 diabetes.
