Fresh Raw Vegetables help control blood sugar.

My review of the “Sugar Control Bible and Cookbook” was a relevation!  It includes a diet plan and recipes for the foods that the author decided were beneficial for people with Diabetes to eat.  She also used the Glycemic Index in compiling her acceptable foods.

Variety in your diet will not be a problem with this plan.  However, I was surprised that many foods that are commonly listed as acceptable were banned when using the food guidelines included.  

Below I have included some reviews from people who have used this program and also what the publisher has to say about the “Sugar Control Bible and Cookbook.”

Reviews:

Needless to say, I am thrilled with your book. I find it very easy to read and understand. Dr. Paltis, keep up the great work! We need more doctors like you!–Debby Caviness

I can’t thank you enough for the Sugar Control Bible. For the first time I can remember I am not struggling with anger, cravings, depression, fatigue etc. Thank you for providing a healthy program to deal with this life consuming problem. –Marcia Harmon

The Sugar Control Bible and Cookbook is a brilliant compilation of the most effective literature on nutrition and functional physiology today. It is a valuable tool for doctor and patient alike and provides guidelines for a very healthy way to live. Bon apetite. –Dr. Darren Weissman — From the Publisher

Because of the focus on total nutrition there seems to be benefits other than just losing weight or controlling blood sugar levels.  Some reviewers indicated improvement in their emotions and energy levels resulting in improvement in their quality of life.

How Protein Affects Blood Sugar Control and Weight Loss

control blood sugar

How does protein affect blood sugar control?  It is digested more slowly than carbohydrates therefore it doesn’t tend to cause high spikes in your blood sugar.  Fat is also in this category.

However, it is better to have a mix of protein, fat and carbohydrate in every meal.  You need the carbs for quick energy, the protein for slower digestion to keep feeding you energy and VERY IMPORTANT keep you from feeling those hunger pains.  Fat is also digested more slowly and you need some fat each day for two reasons, first to control blood sugar by slower digestion and second…your brain cells contain fat so you need to feed it!

The secret to all of this eating is to establish a daily calorie intake,  decide on menus for the day, divide up your intake into three meals and two snacks.  Include protein, fat and carbohydrates in all of them while staying within your calorie allocation.

Here is a  suggestions to help out with your dieting.  Look to the right sidebar under  Carolyn Recommends there is a very inexpensive booklet that is small enough to take with with you .  It is great for looking up food and finding out what a serving is and how many calories!  It deals in exchanges but all an exchange does is list the serving size and calories for different foods and often groups foods into categories.

Below is a link to a company that prepares fresh meals and ships them to you, but they do have a very handy calculator that you can use for free to help you decide  how much you can eat and still lose weight.
