Noticed there weren't any topics on NutriBlasters and Type II Diabetes...  How many of us are out there that have had success using the Nutribullet, or are about to start with the New Year???

 

*Update* December 30

My husband and I took a trip to our town's newest Fry's...  They had so many fresh fruits and veggies, many of them organic...  What a great way to motivate our spirits!  They even had Jamaican tangelos, and Persimmons...  For a small city, that's amazing!  What are some of your recipes to help keep your blood sugar at bay???

Diabetes Prevention TheDiabetes Prevention The NutriBullet can be very instrumental in controlling diabetes. Fiber is very important for diabetics and the NB makes getting fiber from the whole food easy! These are my recommendations for preventing diabetes and even reversing diabetes. My opinions are based on science and practical clinical experience. I was once diabetic and I have helped many diabetics become symptom free. This is really very simple. For most people these suggestions will offer amazing results. Diabetes is a medical condition and you should consult with your doctor before making dietary or lifestyle changes, particularly if you are on medications. Make sure you monitor your blood sugar regularly when making dietary changes. • If you are not diabetic or pre-diabetic a glass or two of coffee can help prevent diabetes, HOWEVER is you have diabetes coffee will make diabetes worse. I am not a coffee drink and do not normally recommend coffee. • Eat more plant based foods; all vegetables, low sugar fruits, whole grains, beans and nuts and seeds. Fill 3/4 of your plate with vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage, peppers, avocados, asparagus, spinach, carrots, sweet potato, winter squash, onions, garlic, beets and leafy green vegetables etc… at every meal. Most of these veggies should be raw! • Eat more high fiber foods, their fiber slows the absorption of their natural sugars. click for list of high fiber foods and their fiber content http://www.webnd.com/fiber-content.php • Eliminate soft drinks, caffeine drinks and fruits juices from your diet. • Be aware that milk and yogurt contain lactose, a type of sugar in milk. 8 ounces of milk has about 11 grams of sugar. • Eliminate fried foods, the extra weight they pack on adds to insulin resistance and in addition they can cause heart disease. • Understand your calorie needs. • Learn and use the glycemic index and glycemic load. • Avoid simple carbohydrates. Complex carbohydrates are great fuel for the body. Aim to get 50% to 60% of your daily calories from complex carbohydrates, 25% to 35% from heart healthy fats and the balance from protein. • Avoid foods with more than 6 grams of sugar per serving. • Exercise for at least 30 minutes (1 hour or more recommended) or more, five days per week. Exercise forces cells to use glucose (blood sugar) for energy. • Eliminate as much refined flour and processed foods from your diet as possible. Flour is sugar in the body • Reduce your intake of animal proteins to no more than 3 times per week and red meats to no more than once per week. However, eliminating most processed animal foods from your diet will show the quickest results. • Lose weight. Just a 5% drop in weight can make a big difference in your blood glucose readings. • If you smoke, please stop. Drink plenty of pure water Healthy Wishes Wally Bishop C.N.C.
Have been using my nutribullet successfully to help regulate my blood glucose levels. My main ingredients for my daily "green" smoothie" are blueberries, spinach strawberries, pineapple & ground flaxseeds. My last A1C was a fantastic (for me) 5.9. This was after only 2 months. The nutribullet is one of the best inveestments I've ever made.
Pamlynn congratulations on your improvements! So glad to hear this! Healthy fiber rich low glycemic foods and a NutriBullet and the body can make amazing restorations. Healthy Wishes Wally Bishop C.N.C.

Greeneyes can you tell us about the rest of your diet? What are you also eating and drinking throughout the day and what times? Also are you exercising? If so what type and how often? Healthy Wishes, Wally Bishop C.N.C.
wally bishop, don't you have a video? I read somewhere on this site about using a diabetes meter and I don't know when to take the test, when you start or finish your blast. When I wake up in the morning a make a blast and watch tv so it could take 15 minutes or more to drink the blast. from candygirl
Candy Girl I have many videos but not about using a glucose meter. Maybe I should do one. I was once a type II diabetic but no longer. A change to my lifestyle fixed it. It's always best to take it first thing in the morning before eating or drinking anything. Its called a fasting glucose reading. I would also do one 2 hours after eating to see how your body is responding to your carb intake. This is a link to some great info regarding your question. http://chriskresser.com/when-your-%E2%80%9Cnormal%E2%80%9D-blood-sugar-isn%E2%80%99t-normal-part-2 Let us know how you are doing.
