Hi Alaa,
This is a very good question. It is very easy to get confused. Actually there is no food that can prevent diabetes. The best we can do is eat very healthy and take care of ourselves well and that in itself is the better way to prevent some diabetes.but not all.
Nuts are a virtual treasure of nutrition for us though. Most of us who are diabetic eat nuts, but they are good for everyone. Walnuts and almonds and peanuts are especially good for your heart Pecans are very good for you as well. Peanuts are good also for the liver because they have choline in them. The liver is essential for handling fats and insulin Nuts provide us with certain vitamins, and very beneficial fats. We need some fats to help us with our own cholesterol. And the list just goes on. I am not really breaking eveything down here so that i won't keep wirting and fill the page. But the basic truth here is that nuts are extremely good for you. Also the nut butters are really good for you, but it is hard not to eat too much of those. I eat a spoonful of peanut butter each day because my doctor said he wanted me to eat it for the choline in there. I can also eat eggs for the choline as well. Personally I really like almond butter. I think it tastes great. You can add nuts to salads ro cooked foods or eat them just plain or you can grind them up or chop them finely to make a flour to bake with as well. Unless you are allergic to them, nuts are a real health benefit I am realy glad you are researching Alaa and picking up information. I know you will share what you find and this is the way to help prevent some forms of diabetes. My best to you.
I heard you should eat a handful of nuts every day, especially almonds. Right now I love pumpkin seeds!
thanks for the vlaue reply , i really appreciated , but still I want to check that does it really decreases the percentage of being affected by diabetes as I cant find it logic ?!!
No, Nuts in and of themselves do not decrease the chances of having diabetes. But they can be part of a healthy lifestyle. And a healthy lifestyle can decrease the chances of having some diabetes, but not all.
Nobody can say what really "prevents" diabetes.
I was told by my doctor to eat a small amount of Walnuts every day
grapes don't sound good... I noticed lower G-values when eating nuts; but my be it's depends on other facts.
whawoo,, so it sounds some how right , what I got that we have to balance every thing & we do have an arabic proverb confirms this :" what increses the limit turns to be its opposite " " el shi2 ely uezed 3n hado yet2elb dedwo"
Hi Alaa....I have heard that nuts, as well as coffee, reduce the incidence of type 2 diabetes. I assume it is like exercise and weight control....if you are prone to it, certain things can help delay the onset. Once you have it, nuts won't make it go away.
nuts are complex , they digest very slowly therefore they do not spike glucose , that leads to a slower and less severe rise in your glucose. They also have the benefit of helping to satiate you and help you to control diet better.
so that is the behind ....
what about dates , it is common that dates is having the same way when digested it took time that leads to a slower and less severe rise in glucose ,, is this right
Dates are high in sugar and will usually kick my diabetic ass all over the place. Try almonds. They taste great raw, roasted, salted, unsalted, basically in any state you can buy them. They are high in fiber, magnesium, and protein, and they will satisfy your hunger quickly.
