Anything with meat and veggies but NO fruit for you. You should focus on low glycemic veggies

No fruit? That is a bummer

Fructose found in fruit goes directly into the bloodstream causing a blood sugar spike. Berries have the lowest glycemic index. You should also think about eating fiber gummies before meals as fiber slows the absorption of sugar thus no spike. You should also add cinnamon daily as cinnamon reduces insulin resistance.

Is there a guideline to the cinnamon? such as a certain amount?

Exercises such as push ups and squats before meals will activate glut 4 transporters, which will filter the sugar directly to your muscles or taking a walk after meals will also use up the excess sugar in your blood.

There is also something called Phase II, which is white kidney bean extract, which is a carb blocker that will block some but not all the carbs you eat if you take it before meals. The ideal diabetic diet is a low carb, high protein, high fat diet. Please keep in mind that its the carbs/sugar that makes us fat and causes diabetes and that fat doesn't make us fat but sugar/carbs do.

I mix a teaspoon of it in a cup of water and add a tablespoon of lemon juice and heat it in the microwave. Strain it or keep stirring it with a teaspoon because cinnamon gels. I drink it like tea first thing in the morning. The cinnamon reduces insulin resistance and the lemon juice detoxifies the liver and will get your metabolism going in the morning. You can also sprinkle it in coffee, on your oatmeal ( would avoid oatmeal doing low carb), on your sweet potato and it also comes in a pill as a side option.

My dad is also a diabetic. While I don't really have any special recipes he does put cinnamon in his coffee. I forgot the exact reason but it has something to do with cinnamon being good for diabetics.

LOL you can eat fruit. Count the carbs and work them into your meal plan
