How to loose weight, control diabetes and blood pressure.
Dr Gupta's rules of five:
You should avoid five white things in your diet:
(i). Avoid white bread, atta bread and brown bread but you can have multi grain bread.
(ii). Avoid all pasta and noodles in the first 3-6 months of treatment.
(iii). Rice in all forms is to be avoided in the first 3-6 months when we are trying to get your insulin resistance fixed and bring your blood sugar under control, you should try using quinoa rice which is a protein, when appropriately cooked, can be very tasty and can help in controlling blood sugar.
(iv). Do not drink tea without sugar because this will encourage you to have breads, biscuits and rusks etc. Use Sugar free, Splenda, Equal or Stevias which is the best. You must avoid all forms of biscuits and rusks.
(v). Milk is an important component of the diet but you should avoid cow or buffalo milk, if you do have to take it then remove the cream twice before using it. Ideally you should try and Consume toned milk which is available in packets.
