    Dear All,

    We will shortly be putting live a low-carb diabetes diet section on Diabetes.co.uk. As a forum of those that do not low-carb, which other diabetes dietary approaches would you like us to focus on?

    Regards,

    Admin

    As someone who is an advocate of the GI/GL method of diet I would like to see more information about that area.

    It does look daunting to a 'newbie' but if it was explained here better I think that would be of benefit.

    Ken.

    100% in agreement with Cugila, plus more emphasis on portion control [​IMG]

    Sounds good so far. Portion sizes is probably the biggest misunderstanding about the DUK advice as many people stack there plates higher so the advice then is wrong. I'd also suggest that maybe some recipes might be nice including some no sugar/low sugar/splenda cakes/buiscuits might be nice too!

    Administrator,

    Good idea having different sections for individuals following a particular diet.

    Another useful section could be on drinks, providing nutritional values to each. I mean everyday drinks such as tea, coffee, fruit juice, squash and fizzy pop. This section could also include alcoholic drinks, although best to put a disclaimer in this section to say that the forum does not advocate drinking ! :wink:

    If it's somewhere that this ridiculous, vague, inaccurate and totally subjective term can finally be clarified then I'm all for it.
