NUTRITION    updated 12/2019


There are a ton of books and websites that deal with nutrition and dieting and we’re not going to try and re-invent the wheel.

BDF believes that you should work with a nutritionist because certain foods that work for some diabetics may not work for you. It requires a hand’s on approach to design a food plan that works specifically for you

and your insulin regimen.

A good nutritionist is able to be realistic in their approach knowing full well that we can’t all be 100% on target, occasionally we’re going to cheat. He or she will be able to provide you with better options.
