  • Everett Dobos says:

    First I heard peanut butter is bad for diabetes then it is good .I don't know what is right good or bad

  • johnson paul says:

    nuts, prunes, beans lentils, oatmeal, berries peanut butter avocado tomatoes apples citrus, and winter squash have no business in a diabetics diet–they arfe all carbohydrate rich . Why eat the exact problem that we have. A simple diet is any animal product except for the milk part of dairy and any above ground plant that is not a grain, seed, or fruit.

  • JUNE FIORITO says:

    I eat all these recommended foods except for dark chocolate. Why is my blood sugar level between 9-10 (Canadian) and has been around for about 15 years?

  • Stella Choudhari says:

    Excellent Information

  • anon amous says:

    More false clickbait with a computer assisted voice. Please don't follow any of this BS. Cinnamon for example, contains tannic acid which can cause kidney damage if it builds up too much. When it comes to any medical advice from the Net, be very leary and verify as much as possible. Then do it again. Low class foreigners and others will do anything to make a buck.

  • Gin,whiskey,tequila,beers, marlboro red,adobo, halo halo and puke

  • Vince Kyah says:

    Thank you for the video and thank for ideas…

  • William Marcus says:

    sorry guys… it has been determined that fructose is worse than regular sugar, but not much. Fructose has negative effects on the liver and exposure to too much of it can cause Non Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease. Sugar is not much better because it is a dual molecule consisting of one Glucose molecule and one Fructose molecule… Still has fructose… So your 5 servings of fruit and veggies per day need to be mostly veggies.!!!

  • William Marcus says:

    If the Fructose facts are wrong… how many of the other facts are also wrong????

  • Thank you. For the information, I needed to hear this.
