Venkat-1810 quinoa or anything... you need to reduce your carbs...and that is best strategy to control Diabetes (If you are Diabetic)... also it will you to over come many other metabolic problems such as obesity ..
Thumb rule is one should consume only 100/150 gms of carbs per day..
However, some ppl may not even tolerate even 100 Gms..so they should reduce carbs further as per tolerance..
Every individual is different..
Ayurveda always say.....mit bhuk...hit bhuk....rit bhuk.
Eat what is beneficial for you...so for a diabetic... less carbs..
Mit Buk... have control over portion size.. do not take anything in excess.. for diabetic.. in quest to control carbs they increase proteins.. which is wrong.. have control over proteins..
eat as per the season.. modify your diet as per season..
Further,alongwith carbs you need to control your fructose intake...
We always talk about carbs and mostly forget to talk about fructose..
You need to control your fruits...
Traditional south Indian style of rice cooking ws better... they use to use par boiled rice.. and never use to cook rice in Cookers like what we do now..
Traditionally ,it was practice to drain excess water from rice and used as feed to cattle..
Our grains were not modified then..
Hope this helps..
