How do you eat? Do you eat meat like a caveman? Eat only green plants, twigs and rocks? No grains, gluten free or whole grains? The only thing I know for sure living with Type 1 diabetes, is I can’t live on a ton of carbs. I want to and I can’t. If I ate all the bagels, pizza and white rice I grew up on, my blood sugar sky rockets and I pack on the pounds. It’s true, whether you have diabetes or not.
How do you chose the right foods? First eggs and butter were good, then bad. If cows were grass fed, then good. Fat was bad, then if ‘good’ fat, it’s good. The USDA Food Pyramid got turned upside down! Food that’s supposed to be healthy changes every second but one thing remains true.
