Can any body advise me for any changes on my present diet in order to control my BS (I am from Bangalore & vegetarian)

Though I am on Insulin with medicines, but even after my regular diet /walking my BS not under control and offcourse, stress also contributing:-

7.00 AM - Coffee and two Biscuit (WITHOUT SUGAR)

8.30 AM - Half cup coffee

9.30 AM - Two Chapatti with two cup Raw & boiled vegetable, D-Protin without milk.

11.00 AM - Half cup coffee with two Biscuits

12.00 No - One Fruit like orange/ 2/1 apple etc

12.45 PM - Half cup coffee

01-30 PM - One small cup rice with sambar & Two cup boiled & raw vegetable

3.00PM - Half coffee with two Biscuits

4.30 PM - Half coffee again

6.30 PM - Half coffee and two biscuits

8.00 PM - Raw vegetable (one cup)

10.00 PM - One cup rice with Sambar & Curd with little raw vegetable.

My coffee in take is more due to head ache, probably it may be due to high BS, the hot coffee is giving little relief. But I am taking coffee without sugar, whether this also perhaps increasing my calories intake

  • I think you can avoid the biscuits except in the evening.For lunch and dinner, reduce the rice quantity by half and replace with boiled mixed sprouts.Coffee is OK once or twice.Think of reducing one by one slowly.Morning chapathi may be replaced with long wheat porridge and a tomato or some almonds.I am also a Bangalorean,given up coffee and follow all my above suggestions.My sugar levels are in control with oral medication.

  • What quality of biscuits you are taking.---Give up coffee and biscuits. Take sprouts (soaked) in good condition if not it leads gastric disorder. Dont take curd night time; take butter milk at night times. Exercise is must. Yoga or brisk walk

  • I Suggest slight modification, in case you observe improvements, contact at apms_mla@yahoo.co.in with your daily activities chart

    After morning work out

    8.00 AM - Half cup coffee with sprouted Moog + India black chana, you can mix little salt and fine chopped tomato for test + 2 cloves of lehsun. .( its easy )

    10.00 AM - One Chapatti with One cup Raw & boiled vegetable, D-Protin without milk.

    12.00 No - One Fruit like orange or 1/2 apple small size etc

    01-30 PM - Two small chapati or one small cup boiled rice + green salad to fill your stomach & Two cup boiled & raw vegetable

    4.30 PM - Half coffee again + one Biscuit ( Non Creamy)

    6.30 PM - 1/2 apple, papaya or any fruits or veg. recommended for diabetics and of your choice

    8.30 to 9.00 PM - Dinner ( One chapati + 1/2 cup rice with Sambhar or Curd with green salad.)

    Try this schedule we wish you will notice improvement in your BS level, its always better before going to bed do some light walking even in your drawing room, watch TV in waling mode instead of sitting, and do some physical domestic work of your choice, even helping your wife in kitchen and work like dusting your own home furniture may help you to destress and maintain your BS.

  • In 15 hours you have 12 food intakes - according to me it is the first mistake.

    You have coffee intake (half cup, true but) 7 times. Is it with milk or only black? If with milk - second mistake.

    Eight biscuits during the same time period! You said without sugar. Does it mean that those biscuits do not have sugar or you do not take sugar with biscuits?

    You take orange or apple daily.

    The text below is a "COPY&PASTE STUFF" from my previous replies to some others.

    IF YOU HAVE ALREADY SEEN IT, KINDLY IGNORE THIS. Otherwise read CAREFULLY.

    ================================================ ====================

    You too can EVEN cure your diabetes yourself like me.

    TAKING MEDICINES ALONE WILL NOT BRING DOWN BLOOD SUGAR ALWAYS. THAT IS WHY PATIENTS ARE FORCED TO MOVE FROM EXERCISE TO DIET CONTROL TO LOW DOSE TABLETS TO HIGHER DOSE TABLETS TO INSULIN INJECTION AND COMBINATIONS OF THESE. YOU HAVE TO CHANGE YOUR FOOD HABITS & LIFE STYLE ALSO TEMPORARILY TILL CURE.

    Diabetes is a fundamental disorder. It is comparable with low voltage in an electric circuit. In both cases all connected subsystems will under-perform and will fail in due course. It will affect SEX life also, if diab is not contained. Diab impairs the glucose (SUGAR) & oxygen supply to ALL CELLS of the patient. You cannot compensate the resultant weakness with liquor, food or medicines.

    A DIABETES PATIENT (also known as A DIABETIC) need NOT starve. PROPER or APPROPRIATE food can be eaten EVEN FULL STOMACH THRICE DAILY! Try to understand diabetes & conquer it like me.

    While following the Long-wheat diet explained in the article referred below, non-vegetarians can have MEAT/FISH/EGG in moderate quantities as side-dishes/curries.

    I was diabetic from 2006; but NOT diabetic from 2009. I studied Diabetes thoroughly, because it was to solve MY problem.
