  1. I was diagnosed with type 2 late last year and i started off following the NHS guidelines about what my diet should be. Well i found that i was getting quite high spikes when eating certain foods which i was told were slow releasing. Porridge, the most basic type. I tried skimmed milk and almond milk and my blood spikes. Any wholemeal foods raise my bloods. If i follow the keto diet i can control my blood results with good results but my concern is this really a healthy way of eating? There is a lot of conflicting info out there and im not sure which to follow, I have been watching a series called ithrive and its about reversing type 2 with whole foods and eating plenty of fruit but its a vegan diet. M aim is to lose weight and hopefully reverse the type 2.
    Any advice would be appreciated
