Type 2 diabetic daily diet

I guess this question should have been forwarded to a Dietician but I am sure you will pass it on.

Being a Type 2 diabetic my usual breakfast consists of two slices of low G.I. bread turned into toast with butter and Bovril, only after a Glucophage tablet has been taken. Lunch is also a two slice sarmie with ham and cheese or tomato.

What I want to know is it considered safe to have these carbs during the day or should I cut down and rather eat a protein meal as Prof.Tom Noakes says?

Thanks for your advice.

– Lou

  1. HI Lou,

    There is a lot of controversy surrounding the diet suggested by Tim Noakes . It would be really unfair for any of us dealing with DM2 to comment on this as EVERY DIABETIC needs to have a diet plan made up for them basedon their energy requirements for each day . I certainly do suggest a significant portion control with my patients byt it certainly must be individualised. I reallt would suggest you take the opportunity to see a dietician regarding this so she can look at all your clinical perameters that would alter this meal plan as well. This would include your cjolesterol levels , renal function and level of daily exercise as well as your overall glycaemic control. Best of luck and well done for keeping up the research.
