Food facts

What you eat is the most important aspect of managing your diabetes. Whether you take medication or not, the foods you choose, how much, and how often you eat them, have a significant impact on your blood glucose. What you eat also affects the amount of fat (like cholesterol) in your blood. If you have diabetes, you already have an increased risk of developing heart disease, so watching what you eat is particularly important. Insulin or tablets are not a substitute for a healthy diet.

There are lots of healthy eating tips in the Healthy Eating For Diabetes book. It’s a good idea to pick out the changes that you feel will easily fit into your lifestyle, choosing foods you enjoy. Don’t think in terms of foods that you must or must not eat. Healthy eating is all about balance, not forcing yourself to eat foods you dislike.

“Shock, horror – I had metabolic syndrome. I was on my way to type 2 diabetes unless, that is, I took steps to change my lifestyle.”

- Antony Worrall Thompson on the health scare that inspired him to adopt a healthier lifestyle. Antony has worked with Azmina Govindji to produce the Healthy Eating For Diabetes book, full of delicious recipes to give you a balanced diet and help control your diabetes.

This is a nice new version of this book with some easy to cook and tasty recipes. I love Azmina, the talks and cooking demos I have seen her give have always been great, so I recommend this book. I have the old version, but will be updating to this one.
