Many may suggest you about a high protein diet when you ask for a diet suggestion for diabetes people. Myth has it strong over the years. However, to be solely depending on protein is the worst choice you possibly pick. Perhaps, it appears to be very logical and reasonable to stick on a protein diet but in fact, consuming a high amount of protein specifically animal protein will lead to insulin resistance. In a bold way, it may lead you to death. Insulin resistance means your body can’t digest the glucose and it means hooray to your diabetes.
However, having a healthy diet includes protein. As it has mentioned, balance is the key for your recovery. For your protein consumption, choose High-quality protein. No high protein diet but yet high-quality protein. Eggs, beans, organic chicken, fish, unsweetened yogurt and low-fat dairy can still be enjoyable in moderation. Yet, it’ll be better if you have your protein intake from vegetables such as spinach and broccoli.
