We have so much info on Diabetes on this site...I suggest you take some time to learn and explore. Here's a general search: http://www.nutriliving.com/popular-topics/diabetes And a couple more specific ones: http://www.nutriliving.com/blog/blasting-effectively-diabetes http://www.nutriliving.com/recipes/blueberry-bliss Almost anything you put in a NutriBlast will benefit your heart health. These foods are filled with fiber and antioxidants...two important components to help reduce cholesterol. Focus on soluble fiber - this type binds "bad" LDL cholesterol to help remove it from your body! Oats, apples and flax seed are great additions to a cholesterol-lowering NutriBlast. They contain a great amount of soluble fiber, which helps bind cholesterol and remove it from your body! Grapes, strawberries, and citrus fruits also contain pectin, a type of soluble fiber most noted in apple skins, that lowers LDL. Check out this link from Harvard that distinguishes the breakdown of fiber found in several foods. http://huhs.harvard.edu/assets/file/ourservices/service_nutrition_fiber.pdf Over time, hopefully you will see your numbers drop just like several other Blasters!!
I'm supposed to eat 45 card counts a day. That equals up to 15 per meal. Not including 3 for my snacks . My question is when I eat and drink when I drink a drink do you count 1 apple and 15 carb counter and so on example plum 15 carb counter.
Hi there! Here's an article that gives you a solid foundation on carb counting. Diabetes educator Jeannene states a tennis ball-sized serving of fruit (or about 8 ounces) is roughly 15 carbs, so use that as a basis for measuring or talk to your personal doctor or diabetes educator to learn more about the specific serving sizes that are right for you! :) http://www.nutriliving.com/blog/whats-carbohydrate
is there a number that I can talk directly to a dietitian
If you leave a comment here, myself or Krista will answer it.
