Our expert says:
I agree with the physician: It is absolutely essential for anyone with insulin resistance or diabetes to consult a clinical dietitian, because the correct diet is one of the most important factors in treatment. Check the List of Dietitians on this Website or phone 082-593-0276 or send an e-mail to email@example.com or look in your local telephone directory or Yellow Pages, to find a dietitian in your area. The dietitian will take your insulin resstance and other conditions such as overweight into account when working out a diet for you, which will be based on foods with a low glycaemic index (GI). Click on 'Diet' and 'Weight loss' and 'The right approach' and read the articles on the GI. Also click on ‘Food as Medicine' on the Diet Site and then on ‘Type 2 diabetes'. Keep up the good work with the exercise bike as you need to do about 30 min a day to improve your insulin resistance. If I look at your diet then I would remove all the sugar (high GI), eat All-Bran or unsifted maize meal porridge for breakfast with low-fat milk, use brown rice instead of white, use lean meat with no visible fat prepared without added fat, increase your intake of low GI vegetables, don't fry meat, etc.
Save up the money to see a dietitian - they are not expensive - you won't regret it.
