What type of food you recommamd doctor.
Any diet that has excess sugar need to be avoided.
More then considering the type of food to be taken or to be avoided
you should plan your daily regimen
to make sure the calorie content is low and it has more fibres in it.
A general diabetic diet would consist of a glass of water early in the morning, not more than 2 idli/dosa for breakfast. Alternatively
a breakfast made from rava, millets, oat meal can be taken.
Lunch should minus not more than one bowl of rice. Chapathi or roti, vegetables, rasam and curd. No deserts, ice cream or dressed salad.
Pickles and papads should also be restricted.
Coffee and tea is ok as long as the sugar content is very low.
Prefer to drink sugarless tea/coffee.
Not more than one fruit a day. You can choose from wide range of low glycemic food.
Dinner preferably should be made from wheat and whole grain cereals.
This is a general diet for diabetes.
you can discuss about your individual preference with a dietician.
