If you are a vegetarian who has been diagnosed with diabetes, you can still maintain your
diabetic diet. In some cases a vegetarian diet may be a healthy way to keep your blood
glucose levels stable – that is if you are eating lean high-quality proteins and are
following other rules for eating as a diabetic.
As a lot of vegans and vegetarians eat a larger amount of fruits and vegetables in a day
than a non-vegetarian and their fiber intake is much higher too. An increased amount of
fiber in a diabetic’s diet can help blood sugars because it slows down the process of the
body digesting carbohydrates. A vegetarian’s diet is usually lower in cholesterol as well
and it can help ward off cardiovascular disease including heart attacks and strokes.
If you are diabetic and are considering a switch to a diabetic diet some of the benefits you
might derive include a higher rate of weight loss and better blood sugar readings. This is
depend on the types of vegetarian meals you choose as some meatless meals can be
just as fattening as ones that contain meat.
Speak to your doctor and dietician before making the switch. You will need information
on how to transition yourself to your new diet. You will also get a list of meat
alternatives you should eat in order to get enough protein in a day. These can include
tofu, nuts, eggs, and seeds.
As with any change, once your switch to a vegetarian diet give yourself and your body
time to adjust. There are many recipes and ideas for vegetarian dishes and you will find a
lot of variety and flexibility in the meals that you prepare. Check your blood sugars
frequently to make sure your blood glucose levels remain stable during the change.

[MUSIC] I’ve been practicing yoga for a long time, and practice all through my treatment I’m a great believer that there can’t be healing unless the whole person is involved
And so I think it had a lot to do with my success and my healing The Pink Ribbon Yoga Retreat We are in the process of planning are tenth retreat It’s a four day yoga retreat at the beach, we have yoga just twice a day Once early in the morning and once later in the afternoon, and it’s fairly gentle yoga
We also do a lot of relaxation, we also dance, we paint My goal for the retreat and whenever I teach yoga is to help people feel both nurtured and empowered While breast cancer is a common thread that runs through this retreat, we do not focus on breast cancer, and we say that from the very beginning So we try to focus more on life, not so much on what we went through or the fears that we might have going forward We really try to focus on embracing joy, embracing hope
The Duke Cancer Patient Support program has supported us with this since the very beginning I went to them with the idea and they didn’t blink an eye, they said, yes we’re gonna do this We had a woman come this year who had never come before and she said that when she came to the retreat she was really, really down and really sad And then she pointed to two of the other women that are on the committee, and she said, and then I talk to both of you and I watched you And she said, you had the same kind of cancer that I had, and here you are years later doing great
And she said I went home happy, and I’ve been happy ever since, and that’s transformational [MUSIC]
