Hi, this is Rachael Richardson with Nutroloution in Miami Beach, Florida. In this clip, we're talking about what foods a diabetic can eat, and I get this question often, and it's important for us to know that actually diabetics, just like anybody can really eat any type of food that they want. It really comes down more to portion sizes and balancing certain foods that aren't so healthy with other foods that help with glycemic index. So, for instance, I've heard diabetics tell me before that there's no way they can eat dried fruit. Well, that's really not true. They can, but it needs to be very small quantities and I would recommend just putting a little bit of fruit, let's say some dried cranberries that don't have added sugar on top of a dish like some sauteed kale with olive oil and some slivered almonds, and then having on the side of that, some sort of protein. So the real main idea here is to balance our macronutrients as a diabetic. So really watching the carbohydrates, making sure that those don't get excessive and then balancing with protein and fat to moderate the blood sugar affect. This has been Rachael in Miami Beach, Florida.
