Your Diabetes Insider Podcast

Jul 24, 2023

In this episode of the Your Diabetes Insider Podcast, we confront the age-old question: Can you eat that? Living with diabetes often means facing unsolicited advice and restrictions from well-meaning individuals, but we're here to show you that managing diabetes doesn't have to be synonymous with constant restriction and fear. As a registered dietitian, diabetes educator, and someone who lives with T1D for 24 years, I emphasize the power of finding a balance that allows you to enjoy your favorite foods without compromising blood sugar control or gaining weight.

Get ready to challenge the food limitations and learn how to break down your favorite dishes without compromising your health. Let's redefine what you can and cannot eat with diabetes!

Here's a glimpse of what I discuss in this podcast:

– Overcoming outdated beliefs: I shed light on common misconceptions and the frustration they can cause when it comes to making food choices with diabetes.

– Embracing an informed approach: Learn how to be smart and mindful about food assessment, enabling you to navigate meals with confidence.

– Breaking down meals: I present a challenge to break down meals piece by piece, identifying carb sources, considering portion sizes, and assessing nutritional content.

– Beyond carbs: I emphasize the significance of overall calorie intake, fiber, and micronutrients for effective diabetes management and overall health.

Join me on a journey of empowerment and discovery, where I debunk myths, and show you that living with diabetes doesn't mean sacrificing the joy of food!
