Diabetic Food Chart for Indians

What Are the Foods to Avoid with Kidney Stones? (with pictures)

Diet Chart

Hello All,

I am publishing this Diet Chart for the benefit of all my readers. This Diet Chart will help you organize your daily meal and eat the right dish everyday. This Diet Chart is targeted at people with diet restrictions, Diabetics and people who want to fight Obesity.

The aim of this diet plan is to help you keep control of your overall blood glucose level, if you are a diabetic and to help you maintain the right weight, if you are overweight or obese.

The carbohydrate present in food is the cause for significant increase in blood glucose level after the meal . The increase is proportionate to the amount of carbohydrate present in the food , the size of the meal, and the quantum of insulin in the body.

If the amount of carbohydrate is maintained at the same level in the breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks every day, then it is easy to keep the blood glucose levels consistently within the limit. For this, you hav to be sure of the quantity of the food you take . Increased presence of carbohydrate can affect the blood sugar level .

Research is still going on regarding the relationship between carbohydrates, blood glucose, insulin and obesity.

David Jenkins and Thomas Wolever of the University of Toronto have developed a new system(Glycemic Index)for classifying foods (carbohydrate contents), based on how fast they raise blood sugar level inside the body. According to them, a food with a higher glycemic value raises blood glucose faster and is less beneficial to diabetics .

The glycemic index method replaces the older method of classifying carbohydrates according to their chemical structure of either “simple” or “complex” carbohydrates.

According to reported clinical trials, Glycemic Index method also provide an excellent dietary approach for people who want to reduce weight. Adopting carbohydrate rich foods with a low Glycemic Index value, and the avoidance of refined carbs will result in better blood glucose and proper weight control as it ensures a highly nutritious eating plan.

From my experience I can say that each individual is unique and they have to test and short list food items that suits them most. All my recipes are tested on my husband. But that does not mean that they will suit to all. Each one has to closely monitor the effect of food on their blood glucose level and decide which one is most suited to them.

So here you go:

If you are diabetic have bitter gourd juice on an empty stomach.


Have one of the following dish or its equivalent:

Have a cup of coffee/tea/ juice with no sugar.


Have 2 rotis or Wheat Rava Kichidi / Wheat Rava Biriyani with two or three suggested vegetable side dishes and a cup of curd.

Choice of Rotis

Choice of Side Dish ( to be taken with 2 rotis)


Have soup or porridge with green salad or selective fruits like pappaya, apple, pear and so on.

Choice of Soups, Salads and Porridge ( to be taken with 2 slices of Wheat Bread)

Sugar Diabetes...

First and foremost,
You need to take control of your health. Seek out a well trained Internist or family physician who is comforable with treating diabetes. Type one diadetes requires exogenous insuin to help control blood sugar levels. I find my patients sugar levels are well controlled with twenty four hour acting Lantus at night with short acting novolog with meals three tims a day. Speak to your doc about this regiment.. Now for diet, eat more complex carbohydrates (CHO) and reduce simple sugars (soda, candy, and cakes). Complex CHO are fruits and vegs, whole wheat, Bran, Oat, Oat bran

Why you should eat fruit -- not drink it -- to lower diabetes risk  — Today.com
Consuming whole fruits at least three times a week may lower your risk of developing type 2 diabetes, according to a new long-term study published Thursday in the British Medical Journal.

    • The most important thing you can both do is supplement with vitamin D3. And if you have other children, get them on vitamin D3, also. There is mounting evidence that vitamin D can delay and might even prevent the onset of diabetes, both type 1 and type 2. Put "diabetes vitamin D deficiency& …conut, and flax seed.

      Congratulations with the babies. Remember the vitamin D3. There is a video, linked below that tells of a study where babies were supplamented with vitamin d3. They were tracked for thirty years. The subjects had a reduction in expected Type 1 Diabetes of 88%.

      Vegetables and fruits rich in antioxidants are a great for everyone.
