Diabetes Diet: Growing Organic Vegetables & What to Avoid in Gardening
[HUMOR] Vegetables are going to be expensive this summer. And because vegetables, especially above-ground vegetables like greens, broccoli, and cauliflower, are the mainstay of a healthy diabetic diet, everyone who is able should have a vegetable garden this summer. I've just finished cutting back the old canes on my raspberry bushes (and have a couple of jagged scratches across my face where a belligerent raspberry cane attacked me without provocation), and now I'm planning my vegetable garden. Hmm. What should I plant this year? Before I was diagnosed with diabetes , I loved succotash. I always wanted to plant some, but I could never find any succotash seeds. Whenever I asked at the garden store, the clerks would roll on the floor laughing. I assumed that was because succotash seeds were so popular they sold out on the first day of spring, so I kept coming in earlier every year, but I was never able to find any. One year, after the clerk pick...
8 Foods To Avoid to Stay Healthy (Part 2)
In Part 1, I shared the first 4 foods I recommend people avoid for optimal health. The remaining 4 foods you should stay clear of are the following: 5. Sodas Soft drinks, which contain primarily high fructose corn syrup, are possibly the #1 source of calories in the United States. This means that soda is not only dangerous for your health for the reasons connected to HFCS (see Part 1), but it also has its own set of health risks associated with excessive sugar consumption. High blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, heart disease, premature aging, weight gain, diabetes, tooth decay, depression, digestive problems, osteoporosis, eczema and kidney disease have all been linked to high sugar diets.  Many people believe that the harmful effects are eliminated with diet sodas. However, the dangers associated with sugar substitutes such as aspartame are even more debilitating. Overconsumption of aspartame has been linked to a wide-range of symptoms and serious health cond...
Avoid Liquid Calories to Keep Weight Down and Diabetes Under Control
Earlier studies that I reviewed here indicated that when we take our food in liquid form rather than in a solid one, we consume more calories that day. And now a big new study shows that when we cut back on the amount of liquid calories that we consume, we do lose weight. But, unlike the earlier studies, the new one finds only one liquid culprit: sugar-sweetened beverages. No other type of beverage is associated with a change in weight. This is good news for people with diabetes. More than 85 percent of us are overweight or obese, according to a survey by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Six other beverages tested in the new study had little or no effect on the weight of the participants. They are diet drinks sweetened with artificial sweeteners, milk with four different amounts of fat, 100 percent fruit and vegetable juices, coffee and tea with sugar, coffee and tea without sugar, coffee and tea sweetened with artificial sweeteners, and all sorts of alcoholic b...
