It is not only about understanding the foods that are NOT good for you but also how to balance the bad foods (i.e. foods with a high glycemic index and glycemic load) on a daily basis. 50% of the diabetics do not achieve their sugar targets that is 3 month average hBA1c of less than 7%. In India this is predominantly due to the act that an average Indian consumes 2-3 times the carbohydrate content per day compared to what the human body was designed to handle. Honestly in this big BAD WORLD with a life-style that just doesn't allow the average diabetic to live in (LADDDUS, ICE-CREAMS, CHOCOLATES, PASTRIES, the myth that JAGGERY is better than SUGAR etc) understanding how to balance your meals becomes important which is what we teach you at ADVANTAGE. We start of with a dietary regimen that is conducive for you and over time teach you how to relax your meals and introduce foods that one often likes not necessarily good for diabetics. You can start smiling now…….
