Nutritionist on Type II Diabetes
If you’ve got Type 2 diabetes or at risk for developing it, then diet and lifestyle are key factors to reduce symptoms and risks.
This meal plan has been designed with that in mind. By eating a wholefood, whole grain diet that has minimal sugars and lots of great fats and fibre, it will help support your pancreas functioning better and reduce complications from this disease.
Weight management is a really important way to manage Type 2 diabetes and what better way than to eat the amazing meals that have been planned just for you!
The meals have been carefully selected around a few key points:
- No added sugars- so in the wonderfully delicious sweets we are utilizing plant-based sweeteners like stevia/natvia that do not impact your blood sugar levels
- Picking foods that are low-moderate in carbs, and low to mod glycaemic index ingredients so again, it reduces the impact on your blood sugar levels.
- Including a wide variety of fresh vegetables that are high in fibre, and nuts, seeds and good healthy fats from avocado and fish to support healthy digestion and pancreas function.
Reducing the Risk
Learn just how yummy it can be managing your Type 2 diabetes naturally using food! By learning what your body needs to function better and giving it more of that (like fibre, healthy fats and protein) and limiting the foods that negatively impact its function (like refined carbs and sugars), then you really reduce your risk of the disease progressing.
Make sure you keep monitoring your blood sugar levels, as a positive change like this might mean your levels drop and you might need to see your doctor to reduce your medication!!
