• People with diabetes, called diabetics, have to measure blood-sugar levels on a daily basis. Blood sugar levels should be between 70mg/dl and 130mg/dl before meals, and no more than 180mg/dl after a meal. To keep blood-sugar levels healthy, diabetics need to avoid several foods.

    Simple Sugars

    Foods to avoid for diabetics include those containing simple sugars, such as white sugar. Simple sugars absorb into the blood stream easily, increasing blood-sugar levels rapidly.

    White Flour

    Products containing white flour, such s white bread, interfere with the body's production of insulin. Insulin production is an essential part of maintaining healthy blood-sugar levels for diabetics.

    Meat and Dairy

    People with diabetes should avoid meat products such as salami, red meat, sausage and meat extracts. Diabetics should also avoid any meat or dairy products containing saturated fats.

    Fruits and Vegetables

    Fruits diabetics should avoid items such as bananas, grapes, mangoes and dried fruits. People with diabetes should also avoid starchy vegetables such as potatoes.


    Diabetics should not drink fruit juice or aerated drinks.


    Carbohydrates, found in foods such as pasta and cereal, have a significant impact on blood-sugar levels. Therefore, carbohydrate intake should be monitored carefully in in diabetics.

  • You can get rid of type II diabetes by having a strict whole foods calorie controlled diet to be maintained for one year. For Type II All processed, low fat food options to be avoided like the plague. All sweets, sweet drinks, fruit juices, artificially sweetened products to avoided like the plague. You can eat whole fruits though, like lemons (freshly squeezed lemon juice), bananas, apples, oranges, kiwi fruits, just ripe Hass avocados etc but not over-doing fruit intake. Don’t eat shop/supermarket bread. If you have to eat bread, bake your own wholemeal bread using organic wholemeal flower or get someone to do it for you. Keep grain foods to a minimum. Don’t eat pasta, even whole grain (unless you make it yourself) Avoid all alcohol for at least 6 months and keep to an absolute minimum for the following 6 months. Eat whole foods diet, eggs (free range), meat (whole cuts or organically certified mince), oily fish, chicken (free range) - NO processed meats. For carbohydrates you have to go for organically produced wholegrain products: home baked bread, pinhead organic oatmeal, wholegrain rice. Don’t eat white rice - this is a major insulin spiker. Eat boiled or baked potatoes. - don’t eat fries. The key is complex carbohydrates which provide slow release of sugar into bloodstream. Minimise carb intake from grain products to a minimum. Eat leafy green salads with organic spinach leaves, lambs lettuce, red pointed peppers, bell peppers, lettuce, red onions, shredded beets (peeled), celery sticks (organic). Full fat cheese, full fat cottage cheese. Take 5grams of organically produced Ceylon Cinnamon each day in a hot drink or mix with pinhead oatmeal porridge. This type of cinnamon regulates blood sugar levels. (Dont buy Cassia cinnamon - this doesn’t work - check the label if unsure of type) Do strict water fasting for at least one day per week - this has to be the same day each week for it to work properly, reduce insulin production and allow organs regular resting time. Maintain a steady body weight of around 22 BMI, for example someone 5′7″ tall should aim and be close to a body weight of 145–150lb for the duration of the diet regimen. Do moderate exercise 3 days per week which makes you break a sweat (perspire) enough to need a shower afterwards. Drink organic vegetable juice (without any sugar or other additives) with your meals if you can’t bear drinking just water. In the morning drink a glass of room temp water with the juice of one lemon squeezed into it, half an hour before breakfast. Don’t use any margarines or processed spreads. Eat full fat butter or use organic cold pressed extra virgin rapeseed oil and dip bread in it or put it on potatoes. Go for full fat foods - don’t go for low fat foods - these are highly processed denatured products which are bad for your health and lead to cravings because nutritional content is lost in processing. After 3 months on this kind of diet, wean yourself off any diabetic medication (for Type II). Keep everything regular including sleep. This is a tough call to do for a whole year but it will cure type II diabetes. For Type I This would require the above strict diet plan and also supplementary vitamin support. For more details:
