Diabetic Foods Home delivery

Busy schedules, family obligations and lack of health education often conspire to make the nutritional management of diabetes very difficult. One solution is to subscribe to a diabetes diet home delivery service, which delivers diabetes-friendly meals to the diabetic's home.

The American Diabetes Association estimates that, as of 2007, a total of 23.6 million people in the United States have diabetes. Diabetes is a chronic condition where the body either can't make insulin or can't use insulin properly. Insulin is a hormone that the body needs to turn food into energy. Diabetes can cause many complications, including eye damage, food problems, heart disease and high blood pressure.

Eating plans for diabetics are considered low-glycemic index diets. Low-glycemic index diets pay very close attention to the carbohydrate content of foods. Carbohydrates have a very strong impact on blood glucose levels, and diabetics are required to carefully monitor their blood glucose levels.
According to the results of a randomized clinical trial reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association, Type 2 diabetic patients were better able to control their diabetes with a low-glycemic index diet for six months compared to Type 2 diabetics who consumed a high-cereal fiber diet for six months.

Factors that should be taken into consideration when selecting a diabetes diet home delivery service include type and amount of food, frequency of delivery, cost of the food, shipping costs, delivery time, and whether the food arrives fresh or frozen.

The Bistro M.D. plan was created by Dr. Caroline Cederquist, author of "The Honest Diet for Busy Women." Bistro M.D. offers four levels of plan membership, and meal plans can be customized to customers' preferences, food allergies and religious restrictions. Bistro M.D. customers are provided with free advice from dietitians and are encouraged to seek support from an online community.

Nutrisystem D is designed for Type 2 diabetics who want to lose weight. According to a randomized clinical study conducted by the researchers at Temple University School of Medicine, patients on the Nutrisystem D plan lost more weight and lowered their blood sugar levels more than patients who followed a diabetes education and support program. Separate plans are offered for men and women. The Nutrisystem plan does contain peanuts and will not customize meal plans for customers with peanut allergies. Customers are given free access to registered dietitians and an online customer community.

Dinewise offers a variety of low-glycemic index individual foods and meal plans for home delivery. Microwavable meals arrive frozen.

I prefer more "whole food" options...

The ones you list frequently use processed foods, etc., so mine might be a little out of your comfort zone.
I try to cook from organic and fresh as much as possible, and watch calories for weight loss. I also keep an eye on carbs. I'm not a vegetarian, but some of the sites I use frequently focus on veggies, and I add meat as needed.
Some of my faves:

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.

    Feb 07, 2013 by Cherry | Posted in Women's Health

    I had my 2nd daughter, 6 months ago, and of course still have a bit of a belly on me. Through my 2 pregnancies, I managed to keep my legs, arms, (basically all but my stomach) in good shape and they stayed the same size. During my last pregnancy, I gained 3 lbs a day in amniotic fluid for the la … these conditions/effects them, so I want to stay on top of it. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on what works well to get rid of a baby belly? I work at the hospital here and don't have time for a gym, so any exercises, or even safe diet pills that maybe some fellow moms have used.

    • Being stretched so quickly can actually cause permanent muscle separation. There is a technical name but I can't think of it right now, anyway, this can cause you to look pregnant even when you are well beyond delivery. That said, try just tightening and holding in your muscles throughout the da …or exercise at home, do some crunches, and sit ups. Also, if you lay on your side and hold your upper body off the floor with your elbow, and do "leg lifts" those will not only help your legs but obliques and abdomen as well. Hope I helped you even just a bit! Good luck and Congrats!!!
