Diabetic foods Peanuts

Peanuts DiabetesThe Peanut Institute revealed that snacking on peanuts instead of carbohydrates improves blood sugar control in Type 2 diabetics.

An important recent study shows. The researchers split 117 men and women with Type 2 diabetes into three treatment groups: one group received 475 calories of mixed nuts,
including peanuts; another group received 475 calories of healthy,whole wheat muffins;
and the third group received half portions of nuts and muffins. For three months,all
three groups were told to eat healthy diets and to eat their daily assigned nuts or muffins
instead of carbohydrate snacks. The participants continued their diabetes medications during the three month period.Diabetics diagramAfter three months,the researchers measured the participants’ blood levels of a protein called HbA1c. Low levels of HbA1c indicate good blood glucose control. HbA1c had declined in all three groups. However,the biggest decline in HbA1c occurred in the nut group,with the second largest decline occurring
in the nut/muffin group. Total cholesterol and “bad” LDL cholesterol also declined to a greater extent in the nut group than the muffin group. HbA1c and LDL cholesterol decreased even though the participants continued to take medications to control their blood sugar and cholesterol. So even though the medications were keeping HbA1c and cholesterol at acceptable levels,the addition of nuts and peanuts lowered them to even healthier levels.Krema & Crazy Richards Logo

Krema & Crazy Richard’s Peanut Butter is made from peanuts – and nothing else. that’s right no salt,sugar,or added oils are found in our peanut butter. The Superior taste in our peanut butter comes from high quality (grown in the US) peanuts. Our special roasting process brings out the full,sweet,‘peanutty’ flavor of our runner peanuts. And finally,the smooth and creamy texture of our peanut butter is a function of our unique grinding process developed over 100 years of making peanut butter. Our old-fashioned process is essentially a double-grind that eliminates the gritty texture found in most natural peanut butters.

Google "diabetic diet"

Diabetes has been around a long time. The recommended diet has not changed. Low glycemic index foods, with a very carefully controlled limited amount of daily calories.
The funny thing about such a question is this - in the past, you could almost tell a diabetic because they were skinny. Since they could not eat high sugar contest stuff, had to really restrain themselves with breads and fruits, and no candy or soda pop allowed, it was actually difficult for them to get in enough calories per day.
I still get surprised when I meet an overweight person who says they're diabetic - it's just not the image that comes to mind!
But yes, I know, there's Type I (the old fashioned kind) and Type II, the kind that's getting more prevalent and seems related to being overweight.

Sugar Dissected

Tony is partially right when he says that 'sugar is our real enemy.'
Simple sugar or sucrose is made up of one molecule of glucose and another of fructose. The only sugar molecule that is allowed to pass into your bloodstream is glucose and our brains run exclusively on glucose. It's impossible to take sugar out of your diet because it comes in many forms.
Carbohydrates are chains of sugar. Starch consists of tens of thousands of sugar molecules. Flour consists of hundreds of thousands of molecules and fibre consists of millions of sugar molecules that are bound so tightly that they are difficult to break down and digest
