The diet works best to manage diabetes? I had no problem finding the best food to maintain my diabetes - keto was a no brainer. However, I’m quite picky as to what I eat and, in addition to that - hate eating the same thing over and over again. The Internet is helpful, trust me, I know how to google, but most of the diabetes-friendly recipes lack information about nutrition and medical background. That’s why I don’t trust random websites’ dish recipes that pop-up out of nowhere. Diabetes is not a casual “flu” that’ll eventually go away! I recently found this. My neighbor had it installed because her husband has type 2 diabetes, and he’s quite a food-lover. So to restrict and manage that diet, a little bit was crucial. The app generates recipes and suggests eating as low sugar as possible, moderated amounts of carbs, fats, and proteins. The sugar intake with food and meals should be less than 40 g per day, cholesterol less than 3000 mg with foods and snacks per day, and dietary fiber intake has to be 25-35 g per day. Diabetes has tons of exciting recipes that are not only diabetes-proof but also healthy, delicious, and easy-to-make. You can serve them for your family and friends too! My favorite so far is Chicken Stuffed Bell Peppers. Full of flavor and proteins. And a good option for lunch.
Ingredients Mozzarella cheese 2 oz grated parmesan cheese 2 tbsp Garlic 1 clove Chopped parsley 1 tbsp Crushed red pepper flakes 0.5 tsp Salt 1 a pinch Ground black pepper one a pinch Ground chicken breast 4 oz Bell pepper two medium Vegetable broth 0.5 cup Instructions Preheat the oven to 400ºF/200°C. In a large bowl, combine Mozzarella (leave a little for later), Parmesan, garlic, parsley, and red pepper flakes and season with salt and pepper. Stir until combined, then gently fold in chicken. Spoon mixture into halved bell peppers and sprinkle with remaining Mozzarella on top. Pour the broth into a baking dish (to help the peppers steam) and cover with foil. Bake until peppers is tender, 50-60 minutes. Garnish with parsley and more Parmesan before serving.

For instance, diabetic brownies. It’s for anyone who wants to keep their blood sugar levels from spiking while still enjoying a sweet treat! I know, right? Also - weight loss. A lot of diabetes have a hard time losing weight—the most significant issue I had (still have to some extent) - lack of motivation. I can’t wrap my head around how some people stick to something just like that. I like to know what I’m working for and how quickly that can be achieved. That said, weight loss depends on a bunch of personal factors. That said, you can: Final notes: I sincerely believe that a keto diet is a way to go to take over the control of the disease.
