We are building an extensive page on the main PEERtrainer site that covers a set of ideas and approaches that help a diabetic adopt the best diet possible. We cast a wide net here and outline some of the things that we have seen work over the past few years. The biggest issue we see is that people tend to gravitate towards diets that restrict calories and carbs.
This usually leads to failure, which leads to frustration which for Type 2 diabetics means only relying on medication to help control the symptoms. We see that different approaches that focus on changing what one eats rather than eating less help a great deal. In our free Tip Of The Day program we focus a ton on the practical elements of adopting a healthier diet.
