Vegan Diet and Diabetes
This is an update, 4 months ago I started a vegan diet that also includes,,No white potatoes, no white rice, no white bread (I make my own yeast breads, but use whole wheat none enriched, none bromated whole flours) can use Rye or pumpernickle purchased breads. All green vegs are fresh or frozen cooked in water with sea salt (no microwave cooking) I eat dry beans cooked in water and sea salt. I eat apples, bananas, melons, berries all low sugar, and no sugar can be used, no purchsed cooked or fast food, I use brown rice. Now, this not a boring diet,,I also season with onions, garlic, herbs, peppers, salsa fresh, cilantro, NO OILS NO FATS,,I do add 1/3 cup olive oil when making bread,,That is all the oil I eat. Now THE GOOD NEWS I have lost 15 pounds,,,AND I only take insulin mabe 3 times a week, and take half the insulin I was taking. My blood is checked at least twice a day, and has never gone over 190, then fell on its own in 2 hours. I eat any time I want all I want, I am not hungrey, and I do not exersise,,,but I plan to start this week. SO,,,I am reading from THE CHINIA STUDY by T. Colin Campbell, PhD, this covers 30 years of research on food and diseases. I will update again in 3 months.
