The diet for diabetes has evolved over time, and at present there is no specific diet for patients with diabetes, but rather a diet that we all should follow and be individualized according to a person’s particular tastes. Generally this diet will involve a low fat, low GI, high fiber diet with a Mediterranean bias. The amount of carbohydrates is in dispute, i.e. should we eating very low carbohydrates or just lower than current recommendations (normally this about 30-60-% of total calories from carbohydrates). At present I therefore don’t favor a handout sheet that gives a one size fits all approach, but rather one that is tailored to an individual.. Doctors are generally not in a position to advise on a diet, and therefore suggest seeing a dietician.
