what kind of food should you eat while you having diabetes.

My endocrinologist, a diabetes researcher, put it simply: avoid anything white. That means potatoes, rice, flour, all the heavy starches and, of course, sugar. Starches are bad for you because they eventually turn into sugar in your body. And they stay in your body for a long time, therefore raising your blood sugar for long periods. Diets low in these products will make managing your blood sugar far easier. What's left? Vegetables, meat and dairy products. Keep the vegetables raw when possible and the meat lean and you've got it made. Not so hard, really. Another tip: Never drink your calories.
