🔎 In this video, we'll explore the foods that stand out when it comes to enormous benefits for diabetics.
8️⃣ Chia Seeds
These seeds are a fantastic source of soluble fiber and a wise choice for managing blood sugar balance.
Chia seeds have been found to lower risk factors for metabolic syndrome, lower insulin resistance, and improve blood pressure.
Nuts are high in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fat, fiber, protein, vitamins, and phytonutrients. As such, people who consume nuts frequently have a reduced risk for diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
6️⃣ Broccoli Sprouts
Broccoli sprouts are full of protein, fiber, and disease-fighting antioxidants. Consuming broccoli sprout extract has also been found to have a positive influence on blood sugar levels.
Apples are a fantastic source of both soluble and insoluble fiber as well as antioxidants.
Its antioxidants have the capacity to reduce blood and liver cholesterol and can help to lower blood pressure and possibly minimize the risk of heart disease.
Okra packs a mighty punch in terms of health benefits helping to lower cholesterol and blood sugar, reduce the risk of blood clots, and even has an anti-stress effect.
Berries may help to reduce blood sugar spikes after eating. Berries are one of the healthiest foods you can eat to help reduce the risk of heart attack, boost brain function and maintain a healthy weight.
Eggplants offer a variety of benefits, including antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, cardioprotective, anticarcinogenic, anti-obesity, and anti-diabetic properties.
Avocados are nutrient-dense, low in carbs, and high in vital fatty acids and nutrients. Adding a slice of avocado to your diet can reduce inflammation symptoms and may have cardiovascular health benefits.

What, precisely, do you mean by “eat freely?” Would binging on one of the eight be considered eating freely?
I started adding a small handful of frozen blueberries and a half teaspoon of ground ginger to my iced tea. The blueberries replace the ice in the glass. When I’m done drinking the iced tea the blueberries have mostly thawed and absorbed some of the ginger flavor making a nice after tea snack.
I’ve never tried Okra. What does that taste like?
Wow if it was that easy we would all be doing it.
As ALL foods mentioned in this article have nutritional benefits, they also contain carbohydrates which stimulate insulin production in our body. So these are not “free” foods if you define free as eat as much as you want. Apples are high in fructose or fruit sugar so it is definitely NOT a free food. Note: in her presentation, studies were done with specific amounts of these foods not “free” amounts. Ultimately, the question is, how does the individual blood sugar/insulin levels respond to these foods. There are no “free” foods.
Thank you so much for your support @Kay we really appreciate it.
LDL is very a important to helth Omega Fatty acid dekivery. LDL particle size is determined by the ratio of Triglycerides to HDL of no more than 3 to 1 which will matain LDL fluffy natural state. . High carb high glycimic index food lead to high levels of Triglycerides
Interesting. I personally wouldn’t eat all of those food freely but I’m t1. I still find some of the info helpful. Thanks.
Ps. For ppl in Ireland (and I think U.K. too), Okra is called Lady Fingers, if you’re looking for it.
me? i wont ever eat okrA—THEY COOK IT TIL ITS SLIMY. I JUST CANT STOMACH IT. MAYBE U CAN!
Okra is yucky raw, but great if deep fried.
Eat freely is a term used in India which makes absolutely no sense.
as a type 1 carbs are the enemy so being on a low carb diet helps or straight keto diet
Thanks a lot for that informative solutions that can help a lot of people that has Diabetic.
It’s just my opinion but okra is slimy and it just doesn’t feel good in my mouth
One might think there would be a great deal of overlap with low carb foods, keto foods, and “best” diabetic foods. Nuts are not unlimited in low carb and keto diets and can be quite high in calories making them something any dieter definitely wants to limit. So, not nuts, but some kinds of nuts, and in carb-counted amounts that are within your limit. And then the apples, which can be so sweet. That should set off the internal alarms inside every diabetic brain. So apples are not only NOT unlimited, they’re most often a no. Berries, some kinds, are low carb and keto friendly, but never in unlimited amounts. Sugar never reduces blood sugar spikes.
@Maurice Coutanceau I really needed to hear this right now, I hope to try to save myself after destroying myself for so long.
@Food Porn Network Correct.
In UK Chia seeds have warnings on packet not consume more than 15grams I believe it said daily. I can’t remember why that is. But I would research it before taking a lot of them.
Every video on YouTube on this topic tells you a different story. Each video needs to be credentialed in some capacity. Anyone can say anything without qualifications.
If cooked long enough you can cook the slim away. Of course there goes the nutrients. fried okra is good, no slim but to much grease. Go figure.
I’m so confused!! The more videos I watch the more confuse I get. I was pre-diabetic for several years until this year I am diabetic. I’m on my own since my doctor only sent me a message saying follow a low cholesterol, low carb diet.
@Sandra not sure if you will see this comment or not, I have first hand experience with diabetes. My highest blood sugar reading was about 22. Nearly 3-4 months on now and it’s back down to the 6’s and 5. Something being my lowest. Now.. with all the info I had been reading, listening to I have come to the conclusion as to my personal results being evidence..that it’s not carbs that are an issue like I first thought.. it’s processed food. I eat a lot of high starch veg and blood sugars are down sooo.. just stay away from all the processed muck.
To give you an idea, my only foods are, meat, eggs, veg, fruit, yes you heard right..fruit! nuts, seeds, dairy not liquid dairy though. 2 meals a day don’t snack, this is key. 6 hrs apart for meal times. All the snacking is a no no.. and I take NO meds at all..
@Sandra I recommend any (or all like me) recipe books by Katie and Giancarlo Caldesi. (available from Amazon). It openend my eyes. I was also “pre-diabetic” for a few years, being told to lose weight. Off to weightwatchers, lose weight, no change. too late. The diabetic nurse at my doctors put me on the Caldesi’s, and boy did I lose weight and dropped my sugar levels, without being on really low carb count. I’m feeling and looking good now for my age, and can’t recommend these books enough! Good luck.
The berries are very good for diabetics, if you are in doubt of any information talk to your GP or a dietician.
All in moderation. One apple a day will not cause a dramatic increase in Ac1 levels. Moderation and portion control are key!
I’ve been eating more portions of nuts lately, not loads but a small hand full about 3 times a week and I do feel better for it
Avocados are great for some things but not so great for others. They are very high in potassium and too much avocado (like banana) are not good for people with kidney problems.
Great video with great info. Helpful to me as a diabetic
Yay! Glad it was helpful!
Nope, accumulation is how T2’s are where they are. The wrong foods accumulate sugar in the blood.
