Hi dinkarblr,

Are you allergic to anything made with wheat in it?

A multi grain flour is probably a better choice. You can mix ragi and bajra flour with wheat flour and make roti without any issues.

What is your A1C

last 12 months ?

Do you know how to count carbs ?

It does not matter which flour, if you learn and limit your net carbs to less than 45 grams per meal.

why even need roti ?

Eat thepla, more vegetables and lentils.

Read Wheat Belly --book

No what is better.

Less than 150 grams per day.

Spend two hours a day -- for next 30 days. Read comments and posts by me and others in this forum.

Read about LCHF

Minimize carbs

Cut down roti

Eat more vegetables and pulses

Minimum rice snd potatoe

Many vegetsrian reciepies also

Test more frequently

like 8 to 10 times a day -- compare sugar readings with what you ate --then figure out which food has more carbs and cut quantity

Be your own advocate

Take Control

Mix atta with raggi,channa,bajra so that fibre content increases.But carb counting is a must.you have to do calculate how much roti is essential and how much suger it raise in blood stream.

What is daily intake of carbs per day?

Thanks

Puplkas are good.

Ok

As I read here, mix flour of wheat, bajara, chana, barley, soybean is good.

dinkarblr ,

As suggested by many folks here, you can plan to mix various flours like Bajra, Jowar, etc with your wheat flour for making rotis/chapatis. But please note that the glycemic index of commercial whole wheat flour [Sharbati variety] is a bit high (70+).

The better option is to use emmer wheat flour which has low glycemic index. It would be better if you mix this flour with other flours like jowar, soya, etc, for making your chapatis/rotis.

Thank you

I AM A VERY SENIOR CITIZEN AND I HAVE TRIED EVERY THING. HAVE YOU A LIKING FOR BEGETABLES ONLY? AVOID ALL THESE ITEMS LIKE RICE, BAJRA, CORN ETC. ETC. AND LIVE ON BEGETABLES, AND THE BEST ENEMY TO DIABETES IS WALKING WALKING AND WALKING, IF YOU FIND TIME AND HEALTH.

Thank you very much

Basically the real culprit is Carbohydrates...it's high in wheat, rice or multigrain....so u can try flour of peanuts (cheaper option) or Almonds.

You can try keto flour also. Take plenty of veggies. Add Fenugreek microgreen in the flour and make chapattis. Fresh salads, greens proteins in the form of paneer, dal etc.daily min 30minutes exercise/ yoga plus walking
