Thanks for the query,

In your case you are diabetic, allergic to cabbage, and suffer from acidity. I would advice the following diet--

1-Have bitter gourd juice and a glass of lukewarm water with half a freshly squeezed lime the first thing in the morning.It will help to mobilize the trans fats.

2-Lunch may have freshly prepared steamed vegetables, one or two whole-wheat bread with butter and a glass of buttermilk.( means the untoned milk).

3-Have a juice during the mid-afternoon preferably a glass of fresh fruit or vegetable juice.

4-Dinner may comprise of a large bowl of raw vegetable salad, with limejuice dressing, sprouted beans and cheese.


You may take roasted bread with fresh boiled vegetables.

5-Avoid spices, condiments, pickles, alcoholic beverages, tobacco, tea and coffee, meat, over boiled milk, as well as white flour and products made from them, refined, processed, and tinned foods.


Remember the following points---

#Fresh fruits contain sugar fructose, which does not need insulin for its metabolism and is well tolerated by diabetics.

#Raw foods should be taken liberally as they stimulate and increase insulin production.

#Other good foods for diabetics include: cucumbers, onion and garlic.

Other measures for diabetics--

1- brisk walk.

2- hot fomentation of back.

3- Drink plenty of fluids.

Hope this will help you and I am ready for future follow ups (if any)
