Are you diabetic and can't eat the foods you like then how do you deal with your eating habits.
My father is diabetic and he has trouble eating the foods that he likes to eat because he really likes to eat rich foods but but me being a chef I reconstruct food for him to make it diabetic friendly.
The question is how do you prepare your food.
Probably the same way you prepare food. The same type of food, but with less of an ingredient or to make it ingredient friendly depending on the health ailment.
If you are diabetic, the top foods to eliminate--as much as you can stand, anyway--are wheat and any form of sugar. Next on the list are most other grains. Modern wheat has a higher glycemic index than sugar. Eat lots of natural fats to replace the carbs: butter, olive oil, coconut oil, grapeseed oil, etc. Get the artifial fats and oil out of your diet ENTIRELY! There is some evidence that it is the artificial fats that are glopping up your insulin receptors. So you eat your stir-fry dishes without rice, which is yummy, and eat mostly proteins and veggies, and some fruits. This more or less a "paleo" diet.
We are not adapted to eat large amount of carbohydrates, plus modern wheat has a much higher glycemic index than stone-age wheat. Many of our modern grains are now GMO, and we don't know the long-term effects of eating this stuff. We DO know that diabetes has gone from being a rare disease to being an epidemic disease. There is something seriously wrong with the modern diet--and most likely modern food in general.
Since I'm diabetic, myself, I know that the carb cravings can be intense, and most of us are not going to be perfect when it comes to skipping the ice cream and resisting the artisan bread, or indulging when eating out. All you can do is your best!
My husband is diabetic type 2. He cut his sugar and not eat much eggs although he loves eggs. He was also advised to cut his drinking of alcohol. He only drinks when socialising or when we got visitors. I also try not to give him fatty foods. I try to cook healthy meals for both of us.
