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:

Veganism growing in India

Sowmya is among a growing tribe of young vegans in India - a stricter form of vegetarianism that seeks to exclude the use of animal products for food, clothing and everything else.
Sowmya says there isn't a day when she doesn't get tempted to relax her self-imposed food curfew. 'But when I think what a poor animal has to go through to produce what is on my table, all those temptations subside,' Reddy told IANS.
The reasons for turning vegan are often ethical - cruelty to animals or environmental commitment. If you are feeding 10 kg of grains to animals to get one kg of meat, it's unfair on the environment or sometimes health, believe vegans
