If you are searching for information about diabetic food pyramid, I recommend pyramid proposed by Joel Furhrman, M.D. in his book “Fasting and Eating for Health.” This pyramid differs from the standard USDA food pyramid and the one proposed by the American Diabetes Association. Although both pyramids recommend eating less sweets and fats and focus more on starchy vegetables, beans and grains, they differ significantly in the amount of fat and animal protein recommendations.
The following are recommendations for a healthy diet pyramid and diabetic food pyramid (these two rare really the same!):
– Raw or cooked vegetables: 6-10 servings (30%-60% of calories). Vegetables are rich source of minerals, vitamins and fiber, but low in fats.
– Fresh, raw fruits: 4-6 servings (15%-30% of calories). Fruits are rich source of vitamins, minerals and fiber. You can choose any fruit you like, including blackberries, blueberries, cantaloupe, strawberries, cherries, oranges, grapefruits, apples, bananas, peaches, watermelons, pears, and grapes.

There is a false belief that eating fruit causes high sugar problems, so people with diabetes often try to eliminate fruits completely from their diet. However, eating fresh fruit is not the cause of blood sugar problems. Even if you eat a lot of fresh sweet fruit, it should not create high blood sugar problems … if your diet is not too high in fats. Fat interferes with absorption of sugar into cells, causing sugar levels to rise above normal levels.
– Whole grains, brown rice, bulgar or quinoa: 2-4 servings (15%-30% of calories). No white flour products and limited consumption of wheat products.
– Beans, other legumes, nuts and seeds: 1-2 servings. Nuts and seeds are high in fat, so should be used sparingly.
– Low-fat dairy limited to no more than 4 times a week.
– Poultry/fish, eggs, fats, oils, sweets, meat – eat sparingly no more than 4 times per month. These foods are high in fat and should be limited to once a week or less.
What you should know is diabetes reversal is possible and is entirely up to you, because the disease is influenced by your lifestyle choices, most importantly diet and exercise. Do not wait until it is too late – you need to take action TODAY!
