Here is a question I recently received from FOODPICKER.org
I have type 2 diabetes and am confused about carbohydrates. Are all starches out completely?
No. Starches are an essential part of a balanced diet, like all other food groups. However, as a diabetic, you need to be more careful about the portions of starches and what is eaten with starches to best control diabetes.
Not all starches are created equal. Smarter choices are frsh fruits and whole grain breads, cereals, and pastas. These foods contain fiber, which helps with digestion. It also keeps you full longer, as it takes longer for the body to break down and digest.
