Ramon, thank you, I hope what I have learned over the years is helpful to others as well. My favorite team because it is so active is the low-carb team so feel free to join in there or at least read there as well. emoticon
I've also written many blogs on my spark page in the past that have lots of links, although it may be a little hard to dig through all of it.

Thanks so much for the information you provided. You are right again about the old ways of doing things and we need to question who are the people behind the education. Keep your information coming,

Even on Spark there are some places where low-carb eating is encouraged and some where it is not. It is not the answer for everyone but it is the answer for most people with high blood sugar. For more on the effect of high sugar (even below per-diabetic levels) take a look at Dr. Perlmutter's book Grain Brain or join our spark team or the low-carb team. If you are scientifically minded at all in your reading go to Peter Attia's website:

eatingacademy.com/

Also check out Dr. Richard Bernstein's book and forum. He may be the best diabetes doctor in the country, having managed type 1 diabetes since he was a child and still doing very well now that he is in his 70's.

Many diabetes educators/nutritionist/dieticians are teaching stuff that they learned in school many years ago that is long outdated. Their continuing education is often done by organizations and companies that benefit from treating diabetics.
Also, their own job may depend in part on advising diabetics.

Thanks again Birgit, yes, you are right.

I attended a three hours pre-diabetes class Yesterday, held by the hospital and the nurse dietitian was telling everyone to eat bean and more beans. I was not happy with the class and it seems she was not open to discussion and had everything scripted in stone. It's the same with some of the videos online. I like this website and learning a lot. Thanks so much.

Just look up the carb levels in beans and you'll know why.
I'm not saying never have any, but definitely keep the amounts way down and have them very sparingly. Even if you subtract fiber the net carbs are still quite high. Instead use more veggies. We use zucchini and yellow squash to make into lots of different dishes where other people would use pasta, grains or legumes. It works well and you'll get used to the taste quickly. If you want to increase fiber vegetables will provide those as well.

Thanks so much. Avoid beans? I though they were supposed to be good?

Eats lots of eggs, very high quality protein and fat, especially from pastured poultry. Also load up on nuts of many kinds, olive oil, if you eat it all kinds of high-fat dairy (full-fat cheese, full-fat yogurt, butter, heavy cream). Avoid potatoes, corn, grains, rice, potatoes,bananas, legumes (beans,lentils) and of course breads and sugars. Avoid also all root vegetables which are high in sugar or starches. Green leafy veggies, mushrooms, green beans are great.
There are a ton of different egg dishes that can me made with any kind of vegetables. A special mention is avoacadoes, high in good fats.
Here is a website that might help:

You could check the American Diabetes Association website. They have a section about vegetarians.

For over 2 decades I have not eaten meat or fish or drank any type of sweet drinks except water. I didn't eat enough vegetables. I Substituted my diet (without knowledge) with food rich in carbs, sugars, etc. When I was diagnosed pre-diabetes I was in shock, still are, my weight is normal and I'm not a big eater. For the last two months, I eliminated most of the bad foods and eating more vegetables and walking for one hour 3-5 per week. I'm having troubles finding food to eat that is low in carbs and getting my proteins. My doctor appointment is in two months and I'm hoping the changes will help me get my sugar levels down. Any tips or information that can help me? Thanks
