During the past few days I’ve shared some respected cleansing strategies from around the world, which are used at renowned cleansing retreats. Now I want to share strategies for diabetics and for those who are better off chewing than drinking their food. While I enjoy drinking “high nutrient drinks,” such as vegetable and fruit juices or smoothies from time to time, they are not a primary feature of my diet. When I do enjoy these drinks I sip and savor them over two or three hours, interchanging with drinking water as well.

I made this trifle for my mom (who is diabetic) for her birthday. It turned out REALLY yummy. What little bit of sugar is in here, could either be left out completely or could be replaced with another sweetener. The agave nectar is low on the glycemic index.Submitted by: DESIGN_LADY05

Brenda, I’m so thrilled to have found you, where have you been all my life? I’m so into healthy everything, and really tired of going to web sites thinking we are of like minds…BOOM! NOT…you’re the real deal, thank you for all you do, for those of us who walk the walk, but still need to milk(non-dairy of course) the brains of precious angels like you! I’ve been on a lifestyle program for over 13yrs & have lost 150 lbs, I went through all the BS “diet” plans, loss 60, gain 80 back…finally the light dawned! I’ve been a model & actress, had been anorexic, so NOT eating was/is a place I’ve visited many times. Part of my crazy diet mania was a fast that was 3 weeks, I lasted 2, it was only 3 protein smoothies a day, zero solid food, water/herb tea…I was working 6 nights a week & had a 3yr old & a teen! OMG what could I have been thinking of? Your detox/cleanse is so doable, and yes I Tivo Dr OZ everyday, no I don’t need to lose any more weight, but I totally believe in cleansing our bodies…it’s like what we do for our car, a little tune up. I went away from dairy milk only because Almond was less calories, then I ran out for a few days & my tummy was upset,(we had fat free in for hubs & kids) I was what’s different? DUH…Who knew? Not me, it also tastes so much better, I mean come on, blind taste test dairy tastes like nothing! Also adore coconut, soy…so much out there, I’m stunned by how many people don’t GET IT? This is 2014 my goodness, I have recipes emailed to me that are freakishly scary…like “Weekend Casserole” over the moon fat/carbs/SODIUM unbelievable…one had, I swear over 6,800mg of sodium per serving…just dial 911 before you take the 1st bite! Honey, I get my herbs/vities/organic stuff, from Swanson.com they have a great selection of almost everything. I usually buy my fish oil locally because I get a better deal…I’ve got nothing to do with them except I’ve been shopping there quit awhile now & they’re prices are good & fast S&H. I brought them up cause I just got a high protein & fiber hemp from them, I’m big on meal replacement smoothies just whenever I feel like it…this stuff is terrible! Holy cow, I tried everything to make it look & taste better…YUCK! What was I thinking of, miss know-it-all, blew it… looks & tastes like dirt (poop)! I actually love green juice and/or smoothies…this is so not that, HELP! When I stumbled upon your perfect web post I was/am in heaven, I’ve been here for like 2hrs, I have been up & down, but yup…you had me at your crustless coconut custard…Bless you and your family, Andrea
Many people with type 2 diabetes find that even though they know their kidney function, their eyesight, their very lives are on the line, can still find it incredibly hard to change the habits that are killing them. You can never ever get well if you remain overweight, unfit and eating junk food. That road only has one destination.

Meat and Poultry. Lean cuts of meat are the best choice for heart health and diabetes control. Saturated fat in meat is the primary danger to the heart. The fat content of meat varies depending on the type and cut. For patients with diabetes, skinless chicken or turkey is a better choice than red meat. (Fish is an even better choice.)
Other Herbs: There are so many other http://www.diabetes.detox.diabetevv.com/diabetes-forums-type-2/diabetes.detox=n3506 that are great for detoxing. Dandelion can aid in digestive health and regularity. Parsley juice is loaded with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants and assists the liver in detoxification and helps to cleanse the kidneys. Milk thistle contains properties that promote liver health and digestive function. Stinging nettle supports the kidneys in their critical role of filtering waste from the body. Neem, which people usually recognize for its antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal properties, can help to purify the blood and get rid of metabolic waste.
Opt for recipes with variety. Try to get a variety of vegetables on your plate, such as dark leafy greens, beets, artichokes, onions, carrots, and cucumbers. Add cooked chickpeas, avocado, brown rice, baked sweet potato, hemp seeds, extra-virgin olive oil, and other foods rich in protein, fiber, and fat. Better yet, look for recipes that combine a variety of plant-based ingredients like Sweet Potato and Red Cabbage Slaw.

Fortunately, there’s a food plan you can use to give your body only the type and amount of food that it can effectively manage. It’s called a food plan because it’s not a quick fix diet; it’s for life.
All “regular food” is out for this session (depending on your level, as indicated above, of diabetes). Your diabetes diet for the next 3 to 14 days will consist of vegetables, fruits, oatmeal, and juices containing fresh organic fruits and vegetables. MOST FRUIT IS OFF LIMITS FOR THE FIRST 5 DAYS! Use the plain oatmeal when you have an urge to chew something (and you will!). Additionally, if you get tired of oatmeal, eat the fruits and vegetables whole, instead of juicing them. DO NOT BUY JUICE, MAKE IT! Your juice (preferably from a Nutribullet Juice Maker -$99-) will consist of a combination of YOUR choice of…
