Would you like a piece of bakes potatoes? NOOOO, I am Diabetic. An answer that we usually face with people with Diabetes Type Two. And mostly whenever we ask them who told you that you are not allowed to eat carbohydrates, the answer is our Endocrinologist! As Clinical Dietitian, I am facing this case on daily basis average. Now, let me tell you that this is not the way. Diabetes type two diets should contain 45-50% of Carbohydrates Does this mean that 50% of my food can be from chocolates and candies? Neither this is the case. Another question to be added: Does this diet help with Obesity? The answer is YES! There are a lot of weight loss diets that are rounding in the field these days. As per my experience, the Diabetes Diet is the only diet that help in weight loss and in the same time to be continued as a healthy lifestyle. (NOTE: in case no other health complications and other Therapeutic diets to be followed).
