With self-made billionaire Richard Branson now joining the fight, the battle to reverse type 2 diabetes continues to gain powerful allies.
In our previous blog post, one of our readers, H Myrie asked us how much food would you need to eat to meet the Department of Health’s carbohydrate recommendations for people with diabetes?
In other words, how much food would you need to eat to take in 225-300g of carbs?
So to answer the question, we’ve compiled a list to show how much of different items you’d need to eat within a day to meet this government recommendation which is passed down to us via the NHS.
When it comes to diabetes, few topics get as much heated debate as that of whether we diabetics should lower our carb intake intake or not. There are many books available these days that advocate significantly reduced daily carbohydrate levels and it’s always a hot discussion amongst people with diabetes.
Top down healthcare advice from the public sector relies on research to back up it’s recommendations and steers clear of making any hasty moves.
