Hi this is Rachael Richardson with Nutrolution in Miami Beach, Florida. In this clip we're talking about which foods a diabetic should avoid. And just to sum this up in one, in one solid sweep, basically it's your processed carbohydrates and sugars. So, things like bagels, things like pasta or reducing your levels of pasta. Certainly all of your sugar sugars, things that are found in like Mocha Frappachinos and brownies and desserts like that, it's not to say that you can't have those things, but to hopefully make them at home reducing the sugar levels and maybe even turning the sugar that they call for in a recipe into something like agave nectar, which is still very, very delicious and sweet but has a lower affect on the blood sugar than sugar itself. So, one thing that I always point out is that a bagel has somewhere around 60 grams of carbohydrates just in one bagel. And that's way, way, way too much just for one meal. So, looking at a healthier breakfast alternative, something like a protein shake. And I've brought with me a wonderful whey protein powder that I personally use for breakfast, mixing it with some frozen fruit in the blender and a little bit of coconut milk or rice milk or almond milk. And that's a much healthier breakfast. This has been Rachael with Nutrolution in Miami Beach.
