The Mediterranean Food Pyramid includes more high glycemic index carbs than most food pyramids.
Living with diabetes can have significant impact on the foods you eat since everything you eat and drink is broken down into glucose, which can affect your diabetes problem. One of the best ways for diabetics to control the quality of their meals is to plan their diabetes menus.
Carbohydrates (45%-65%) - Use more low Glycemic Index carbs than highProteins (10%-35%) - Keep it leanUnsaturated fats (20%-35%) - Monounsaturated and polyunsaturated Diabetes menu planning is an also an excellent way to keep track of calories.
The average person should consume about 2,000 calories per day to ensure that their body functions properly and they have enough energy to be active. Check out our Nutrition, and Recipes sections for more information about how you can plan your tasty diabetes menus and live a healthy lifestyle by eating well! We intend to do this within local communities, with partnerships and just through word of mouth.
In most cases, this is the point where people throw up their hands in despair, convinced that the plan isn't working, quit the low carbohydrate diet, and go in search of a pastry shop.
So, you’ll find that low-carb diets do not encouraged the body to produce excessive insulin and this is what some researchers suggest causes body fat to be reduced. Basically when it all comes down to energy, the body burns carbohydrates better than it does fat or protein, so why get rid of them? Although it can be hard, try cut as much junk from your diet (the chips, baked goods, candy and soda etc.) and find ways to incorporate some of the above list into your diet rather. The American Diabetes Association (ADA) promotes a low fat, high carb, grain based diabetes diet, as does the American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE). I am a formerly obese, formerly drug and insulin dependent diabetic, taking four insulin shots a day … just to survive.
1) WOW… look at those carbohydrate numbers, carbs represent almost 60% of my food, in grams.
2) If Saturated Fats make up a small percentage of EVEN a Standard American Diet, how can it be the root of all evil as so many claim that it is? A Full Listing of the ADA Diet and it’s components are included at the end of this post. I created the chart of carbs (below) based on the minimum number of servings and the maximum number of servings.
Now let’s take a look at the carb totals of my low carb paleo meal plan,   My goal is to be 30 grams of carbs or less.
My largely fast food diet lead to more and more insulin resistance, a diabetes diagnosis and pancreatic failure with a trip to the hospital via an ambulance.
The ADA Diabetes Diet is not significantly lower in carbohydrates and will cause blood sugar spikes. You can choose to THRIVE … or choose to live a life of downward health, leading to more pain and suffering. I can already hear my Doc’s sigh when I see her in a couple weeks after my next rounds of labs. When I realized what was happening, I called up my old employer who had done the Atkins plan. THEY don't want YOU better – they want you ADDICTED like a methhead to their drugs!
My brother, who is also diabetic has adopted a low carb diet after learning of my success, and has also gotten off all of his meds. Overproduction of insulin is a long term killer for anyone, and the ADA diet CAUSES insulin overproduction.
Anne March 19, 2010 at 2:11 am My doctor told me that he had never had a patient like me(low carb to lower blood glucose). My experience with expert diet advice came when I was sent to a dietitian after having a stent for CAD. Sandy Abernathy June 9, 2010 at 6:21 pm I found Steve through a friend of mine on line, Brian Keith Lawson. Chad May 3, 2012 at 6:39 pm After a visit to Mayo in Rochester in March, I was put on a high carb diet. My goals when visiting were to figure out why i wasn’t losing weight and to develop a plan to get off all meds. A co-worker of mine is currently on a special diet and has been experimenting with several low-carb dishes. She offered to bring a piece to the office the next day for me to sample and even day-old and reheated, it was really good! With a hefty dose of veggies, I feel good about eating it myself and feeding it to him, which means he can get his pizza fix a lot more often now.  We pile it high with a variety of toppings- mushrooms, spinach, red peppers, green peppers, onions, green and black olives, sometimes with meat, and sometimes without. I’m interested to see what some of you think, so please, if you give it a go, come back and leave a comment! Take 1 large head of fresh cauliflower, remove stems and leaves, and chop the florets into chunks. I like the cauliflower mashed “potatoes” too, but this crust just blew me away!
For your first time, doing it on a Sunday afternoon is probably best, but after that, it’s pretty simple even to do on a weeknight. I haven’t tried it with a pesto sauce yet, and your version sounds fantastic, so I’ll have to give it a go!
My sister is allergic to gluten AND we are on a low-carb diet…this is pretty much our favorite thing right now, I have made it at least 5 times in the last couple of months.
Wow, I had no idea the crust was made out of cauliflower…this seems to be really popular right now!
I was thinking of making a couple batches of the crust and then freezing it so it would be ready to go. This looks amazing, but I was wondering if anyone has tried a Vegan version of this and if so what did you use to replace the egg and cheese? I was trying to figure out what to do with the cauliflower I’d gotten from my co-op last week and came across this recipe.
Only downfall was that I wanted to make 2 of them, but for some reason my head of cauliflower only made 1-cup when riced. Also, feel free to post you’re recipes or you’re favourite foodie tips on it whenever you like!
Just made this tonite and the only problem is one serving is half the pizza and the other half was looking really good. I always put them through a food processor, but I use the chute and shredding disk (works great and there’s no danger of accidentally pureeing). For the crust, I measured out 1 cup (stored the rest, uncooked and covered, in the fridge), and microwaved (in a small bowl) for 1min 30 sec., gave it a stir, then 30 sec. THANK YOU SO MUCH…I had seen the recipe on other sites, but your pics were the reason I finally attempted it! I made this today for a house party, my vegetarian cousin came and I wanted to make something interesting for her. Mine doesn’t usually stick though, so yes, try more cooking spray and perhaps you won’t have a problem with that! Lower you risks for heart disease, stroke, and other problems of diabetes with a diabetic diet plan that includes healthy food choices to help you better control your blood sugar level.
Diabetes menu planning means that you create a menu for the day, week, or even month that you stick to. Obviously, the larger amounts of food and activities start at the bottom suggesting daily use, and gets smaller as you move up (weekly) toward the top which suggest monthly use. A good Diabetes menu plan will not only provide information that is based on careful research 2000-Calorie-Meal-Plan, but we also provide a range of recipes for diabetes (including diabetes snacks, vegetarian recipes, and even diabetes desserts) that are suitable for any healthy diet. We intend for these key elements of sustainable lifestyle change to become pervasive within communities, and within the lives of all of us affected by the disease. Well, firstly I don’t believe that cutting out any food group in its entirety is good, especially carbs, as they are the building blocks for brain power, they satisfy your hunger leaving you less likely to binge eat, plus they provide you with energy to make it through the day.
Generally the principal is to eliminating or drastically reducing the consumption of breads, pastas, potatoes, rice, and other sweet or starchy foods (known as high digestible carbohydrates), and in tern they are replaced with foods containing a higher percentage of proteins and fats (meat, cheese, nuts etc.). You may find low-carbs diets differ in their dietary specifics, however they all seem to agree that processed sugar be eliminated and this I have to agree with 100%.
Grrrrr. I contend the ADA Diet is NO better than the SAD (Standard American Diet) or at best ONLY marginally healthier and therefore harmful to the health of EVERYONE but especially detrimental to DIABETICS.
Many eat the maximum and more because the ADA Diet maintains the addictions to grains and sugar.


And you have to really dig to find ANYTHING negative about sugar drinks on the ADA website.
Your health will decline at a slower rate… but still ultimately leading to never damage, organ failure and amputations. I had side effects to the meds, to the point that I was no longer able to tell how I was really feeling.
The high carb diet recommended by the AHA made my triglycerides soar to about 300 and my cholesterol went over 200. One day a few weeks ago, she dropped by my office to tell me about a recipe she’d found – pizza crust made of cauliflower! Since I try to limit the processed stuff we eat, cutting out simple carbs from our meals when possible, I don’t like to make or order pizza very often. The remainder can be used to make additional pizza crusts immediately, or can be stored in the refrigerator for up to one week.
Since being introduced to it for the first time a couple of months ago, I’ve probably made 8 or 9 pizzas!
I also have a zucchini crust and a spinach crust at my site under recipes, along with a stuffed crust version of the cauliflower. I’m so glad you dropped by and commented because I didn’t even realize you had a blog! I tried once to double the recipe and make a bigger crust, but found that the center was a bit too soggy for my taste, even if I baked it for longer…. There are 25 people in our house tonight, and about half of them sampled this (and on a night when we’re making regular pizzas) and everyone was crazy about it, and stunned that they couldn’t taste the cauliflower! I am going to try more vegan recipes and I would love to try and make this one as a vegan alternative.
I’ve tried it before myself and though the texture won’t be quite the same (It will be more like a puree), it still works fine once you mix all the ingredients together.
So, it is best to plan a diabetic diet menu that can help you lose excess fat and maintain your ideal weight.
A good diabetes menu plan will include diabetes snack options that will help to control your appetite as well as different diabetic meal options so that you don't get bored by eating the same foods over and over again. Bad food choices will raise your blood sugar, that will cause you to use more diabetes drugs, or make you suffer severe diabetes complications. When you first start a low carbohydrate diet, your weight will plummet as your body sheds storage glycogen and all the water that the storage carbohydrate sucks up like a sponge.
When you switch to a low carbohydrate diet, the drop in fruit, vegetables, legume and grain consumption can significantly decrease fiber intake and result in inadequate phytonutrient, antioxidant, vitamin C and potassium intake. This may seem a bit preachy, but I feel compelled to point out the fact that there are a multitude of successful vegan or vegeterian endurance athletes, including ultra-runner Scott Jureky, pro triathlete and ultra-runner Brendan Brazier, pro triathlete Hilary Biscay, US Master?s Running Champion Tim Van Orden, and top ultraman finisher Rich Roll.
But there are bad carbs out there which unfortunately most of us gravitate towards (white refined carbs like bread or other bakes goods), which could certainly do with the chop! I have used low-carb diets in the past and have had great success, but honestly, you don’t have to give up good carbs if you enjoy them, it’s the processed carbs that only need the boot and why? Of course I was put on a statin, but I was lucky – I was unable to take it because of severe muscle pain. I personally love the sauce, cheese and all the toppings that come on pizzas, but I don’t like the way I feel after eating all the dough that serves as the delivery vehicle, so this twist on the crust has made us both very happy. Place under a broiler at high heat just until cheese is melted (approximately 3-4 minutes).
Its very rare that everyone in my house likes the same food, but everyone absolutely loved it! I have, however, kept a batch of the riced cauliflower in a container w tight-fitting lid in the fridge for a couple of weeks and it was fine. Also, make sure you’re not doubling the recipe to make a large crust, because I definitely feel like when I did that, it was really soggy. I now think that on a low-carb diet I can survive family pizza nights–just have to plan ahead. I quickly nuked another cup (only 2 mins as the first cup browned and seemed dry) and added it to the egg and cheese. I have been living gluten free for over a year now and have been searching for an easy to make and tasty pizza crust recipe. I mashed frozen defrosted cauliflower with spices and some Parmesan cheese and then formed into the pizza crust and baked. I am gluten free and though I don’t mind gf pizza mix, I loved the idea of how inexpensive and available this crust would be.
I have to admit, I was hesitant when mixing the cauliflower and the other ingredients to make the crust, but it was so good!!
It was extremely delicious than you so much for this recipe I really appreciate you sharing it!

So if your goal is weight loss, life is good for the first couple weeks as you shed anywhere from 3-20 pounds, depending on your starting weight.

Since dropping carbs not only is my BG good, but my triglycerides are 80 and my other lipids look good too. Since she’s a culinary school graduate and enjoys food as much I do,  I trust her judgement and wanted to try it. I found it a little too soft in the middle, so maybe I need to cook it a little longer next time, but I’d definitely try it again and feed it to the hubs without telling him what it is ;) Thank you! The giant heads they sell at the grocery are actually always enough to make multiple for me! I used pre-shredded mozzarella for the crust and used fresh mozzarella for the top over diced tomatoes, cooked diced onions, spinach and tomatoes. All you have to do is turn your oven to the broil setting (you can keep the temp at 450 like you had it on for baking) and then pop in the pizza.
I just try to get it as thin as possible in the middle, but it still never crisps up like the outer edge does. Just be careful with your total daily intake and timing of starchy vegetables or tubers, such as beets, sweet potatoes or taro. I have since eliminated low-carb bread, and all grain products, as I was developing headaches, sinus issues, etc.
Place the riced cauliflower into a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 8 minutes (some microwaves are more powerful than others, so you may need to reduce this cooking time). Anyone who reads this, and has trouble with lactose, can sub out the mozzarella and use cheddar or jack.
The edges were crispy and kind of line a pizza crust and then the interior was …different. There is no need to add water, as the natural moisture in the cauliflower is enough to cook itself.
My husband had a fit when he saw what I was making for dinner (thinking he would hate it) and he thought it was the best thing he ever had! I am vegetarian but not vegan so I am going to try this recipe using less cheese and egg whites. One question – any advice on how to get the crust either a little crispier or not stick as much?
I topped mine with pasta sauce, cheese, and peppers that I nuked for a couple seconds and chopped olives.
The outer rim of the crust was more crispy than the inner…maybe I just need to use more cooking spray? I didn't even change my exercise plan of walking and being out in the sun in the summer doing lawn work or shooting sporting events. I topped it with alfredo sauce, diced green peppers, mushrooms, basil, pepporoni, olives and mozzerella…SO yummy! I slowly added back in things like peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, anything I was growing in the garden at home.

They will tell you that you can eat cookies, pasta, ice cream, bread and plenty of chocolate on a low carb diet, as long as you buy their brand.
But some companies still try to sell it to you as a low-carb option.Low-carb chocolate is usually full of sugar alcohols, which the manufacturer does not count as carbs. Eat Only When HungryOn a low-carb diet you should aim to eat when hungry (see tip #2 above). Nothing slows down weight loss more than frequently eating a lot of food that you do not need. Here are three common traps to watch out for on LCHF:Dairy products such as cream and cheeses. The problem is if you’re munching a lot of cheese in front of the TV in the evening… without being hungry. Or lots of cream with dessert, when you’re actually already full and just keep eating because it tastes good. Another tip: Avoid bringing the entire bag to the couch, preferably choose a small bowl instead.
Even if you’re only using almond flour and sweeteners snacking on baked goods and cookies usually provides extra eating when you’re not hungry… and yes, this will slow down weight loss.Feel Free to Skip MealsDo you have to eat breakfast? And this goes for any meal.On a strict LCHF diet the hunger and urge to eat tends to decrease a lot, especially if you have excess weight to lose.
Your body may be happily burning your fat stores, reducing the need to eat.If this happens, be happy! Measure Your Progress WiselyTracking successful weight loss is sometimes trickier than you’d think.
Focusing only on weight and stepping on the scale every day might be misleading, cause unnecessary anxiety and undermine your motivation for no good reason.The scale is not necessarily your friend.
You may want to lose fat – but the scale measures muscles, bone and internal organs as well. This is especially true if you’re just coming off a long period of semi-starvation (calorie counting), as your body may want to restore lost muscles etc. Starting weight training and gaining muscle can also hide your fat loss.Losing fat and gaining muscles is great progress, but you may miss this if you only measure your weight.
People on a very strict low carb diet may lose weight quicker, as well as those who exercise a lot (a bonus). And if you have an enormous amount of excess weight to lose you could start out much faster.As you get closer to your ideal weight the loss slows, until you stabilize at a weight that your body feels is right. If you lose weight and then return to living exactly the way did when you gained weight, don’t be surprised when the excess weight returns.
People may believe that fruit is nutritious but unfortunately fruit contains a lot of sugar – around 10% by weight (the rest is mostly water). Sweet, right?Five servings of fruit per day is equivalent to the amount of sugar in 16 ounces of soda (500 ml). Contrary to what many people believe the sugar is more or less identical (about 50% glucose, 50% fructose).Sugar from fruit can shut down fat burning. However, large amounts of alcohol might slow weight loss somewhat, so moderation is still a good idea. Avoid Artificial SweetenersMany people replace sugar with artificial sweeteners in the belief that this will reduce their calorie intake and cause weight loss. Several studies, however, have failed to show any positive effect on weight loss by consuming artificial sweeteners instead of plain sugar.Instead, according to scientific studies, artificial sweeteners can increase appetite and maintain cravings for sweet food. Something odd happened when I tested Pepsi Max though, and there are well-designed studies showing increased insulin when using artificial sweeteners.Furthermore, artificial sweeteners can maintain an addiction to sweets and lead to snack cravings.
Check out our video course with addiction specialist Bitten Jonsson, RN.Read More about Artificial Sweeteners 10. Here are the worst three:Insulin injections, especially at higher doses, are probably the worst obstacle for weight loss. C. If this is not enough to get off insulin (again, for type 2 diabetics) you could try newer promising drugs like Victoza or Byetta.
The newer drugs Victoza and Byetta (injectable) often lead to weight loss, but possible long-term side effects are still unknown. Unfortunately cortisone is often an essential medicine for those who are prescribed it, but the dose should be adjusted frequently so you don’t take more than you need. The most common antidepressants known as SSRI’s (for example Citalopram and Sertraline) usually don’t impact weight significantly. More on depressionSome contraceptives often contribute to slight weight gain, especially those that contain only progesterone and no estrogen, for example the mini-pill, the contraceptive injection, or a contraceptive implant. More on fertilityBlood pressure medicine, in the form of beta blockers can cause weight gain. Carbamazepine and Valproate).Allergy medicines called antihistamines can cause weight gain, especially at high doses.
Cortisone is even worse (see above). More on allergiesAntibiotics can possibly lead to a temporary weight gain by disturbing the gut microbiota and increasing the amount of energy we absorb from food.
This is still speculative for humans but it’s another reason not to use antibiotics unless you truly need it. Stress Less, Sleep MoreHave you ever wished for more hours of sleep, and a less stressful life in general?
If you’re looking to lose weight, you should review possible ways to decrease or better handle excessive stress in your life. It also has an adverse effect on self-discipline and makes it painfully easy to give in to temptation (it’s no coincidence that induced sleep deprivation is a common interrogation technique).
Similarly, sleep deprivation weakens your resolve to work out.Sleep issues?Do you have trouble sleeping even if there’s ample time for it?
In the long term, this will help the body prepare for sleep at that time.No coffee after 2 pm. While booze might make you woozy, it worsens the quality of sleep.Limit exercise in the four hours before bedtime. Physical activity can perk you up and make it difficult to get to sleep for several hours afterwards.Get 15 minutes of sunlight every day.
Sleep well!Difficult, but worthwhileMany may find the above guidelines difficult to follow, perhaps because of a lack of time (or the equivalent – small children!). It can also play a part in helping you get thinner.Read More About the Benefits of Sleep 12. Yes, it tends to work just fine with a low-carbohydrate diet, as appetite regulation happens effortlessly.However, despite the fact that a low-carbohydrate diet generally makes it easy to eat just enough, there are foods classified as low carb which become a problem in larger quantities. What’s more, part of the protein in milk generates a significant insulin response, which can have the same effect.
This applies especially to dairy products typically lacking in fat, such as regular milk and various yoghurts, but be careful with full-fat dairy such as cream and cheese all the same.
For someone following a strict LCHF diet with a 20 grams of carbs per day allowance, this means that consuming 100 grams (which happens in a flash!) will have filled their daily quota. Supplement Vitamins and MineralsYour body needs a certain amount of essential vitamins and minerals to function properly.
What happens when you eat too little food, or when the food you eat isn’t sufficiently nutritious?
But now there are well-performed studies which suggest it might not be far from the truth.Vitamin DA lack of vitamin D is probably the most common deficiency in northern countries such as Canada, or most of the US.
Three recent studies indicate that, when compared to a placebo, a vitamin D supplement can decrease your fat weight or waist measurement [1 2 3].In one of the studies, 77 overweight or obese women received either a supplement of 1000 units of vitamin D, or a placebo, every day for 3 months. One group received a daily multivitamin supplement, the other a daily calcium supplement, and the last group only a placebo. The study carried on for half a year.Unsurprisingly, the results showed that nothing had happened to the weight of the women receiving calcium or the placebo.
Unfortunately, they still contain only minimal doses of vitamin D, so you need both for the full effect.14. Use Intermittent FastingThere are many things to consider before moving on to this tip #14, but don’t let that fool you.
