- Avoid adding oils or consuming processed foods with added oils to them (you may use 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil daily for 1 month as you move towards a total diabetes reversal diet then go on no added oils).
- Avoid processed foods in general, especially processed grains or carbohydrates (baked goods, crackers, chips, muffins, breads). Eat whole grains in their cooked whole “intact” state and eat them “in a bowl.”
- Eat 1/2 – 1 cup of cooked beans daily (can get precooked in a can)
- Nuts/seeds – 1 palm full per day raw.
- Good fats IN FOODS can be consumed daily – avocados (1/2 avocado), raw nuts (< palm full) and seeds, olives, greens, 2-3 tablespoons of flax seed or chia seeds daily is encouraged. (If you want to reduce insulin resistance quick hold the nuts and avocados until your blood sugar starts to drop).
- Have a large green salad daily and/or 75% packed greens/ 25% fruit smoothie with ¼ cup flax seed or chia, water to fruit line at least and bend, and/or, steamed or lightly cooked/boiled vegetables (5-6 cups per day at least).
- 3 or more whole fruits per day – 1 serving or half cup at least is berries daily.
- You are encouraged to use as many different herbs and spices as you desire. If you have high blood pressure don’t add salt.
