The Best Diabetes Diet

Why am I so tired? – By Dr. Frank Aieta, N.D.

It’s very common to tell a diabetic patient to go on a diet. But what diet is best? Diets are not one-size-fits-all – not every person should be on the same diet. When diagnosed with diabetes, I was advised to eat one to two slices of whole wheat toast with peanut butter, skim milk, and half a banana for breakfast.

The outcome was horrible for me. I didn’t feel energetic, happy, or calm. Something was not right. I could not effectively convert the carbs from that breakfast. My glucose would spike up. As an alternative, oatmeal was suggested. That, too, was terrible for my glucose. I was told to inject more insulin. That was not the health direction I wanted to go in.

Eventually, the dawn of eating whole plant-based food was born. Society was pushed to stop eating animal protein and become vegetarian or vegan. I love vegetables and thought I should have some non-animal protein days in my diet.

The Result
The result should have been great. But it wasn’t.
My seasonal allergies returned and seemed to last year-round. I was tired, became bloated, and had bouts of arthritis. Not to mention I had days where my glucose would go crazy.

The right food is nourishment. It provides vitamins, minerals, fiber, fat, and protein, which is absorbed in your digestive tract and then disseminated throughout your system. Did you know that some of the healthiest foods may not be the healthiest for you?

After some lab testing, I learned I had food intolerances, also referred to as sensitivities. These are not foods that you are allergic to that can cause a severe reaction. I had no issues with animal protein, but many issues with plant-based foods (wheat, milk, peanuts, cucumbers, bell peppers, broccoli, and more). No wonder I felt terrible!

Intolerances can take up to a few days to reveal, which makes it difficult to determine which food may cause issues. These can include:

  • Bloating
  • Headaches
  • Joint pain/arthritis
  • Sleep issues
  • Difficulty losing weight
  • Stomach pain
  • Stuffy nose, seems like seasonal allergies
  • Skin issues
  • Digestive distress and more

Testing for Intolerances
If you’ve had issues with certain foods, you may have ordered a test. If so, did you follow a protocol to heal from your sensitivities?

The quality of the food analysis report can make a difference in resolving your issues, discovering the foods you may need to eliminate, and determining which foods you can keep in your diet. Some reports show limited information; for example, you may have an intolerance to apples – no apples for you!

But what if you love apples? Technology advances have made it possible to learn which apples you are intolerant to and which apples your body may thrive from. The good news is that there is a test that can even tell you the foods that are considered therapeutic for you.

Pairing food intolerance reporting with information on food additives, your digestive system, mineral absorption, and metal toxins offers a clearer understanding of how to make dietary changes that are designed just for you. This can have a great impact on glucose, gut health, and overall health.

Without testing, no one knows what’s going on inside your body, and you may consume food your body doesn’t respond well to.

Would you believe low glycemic food like turkey presented a problem for one diabetic? It contributed to acid reflux, making it difficult to lower glucose and lose weight. With the right information, this person was able to crack their personal diet code!

Another person discovered that it’s possible that supplements can cause stomach distress and other issues. With the proper testing, though, the answer became clear, and the distress was fixed!

Having the right information removes the guesswork so you can see results!
