One diabetic sufferer 31 years old lady came for diet counselling.  She was worried about the diet and food pattern. I Am a diabetic patient since 3 years.  From that day I reduced my food intake.  Food diet was one dosa for breakfast,rice vegetables in lunch for dinner one fruit.  I used to do exercises and strictly follow the diet pattern.  I started walking for 45 minutes a day after I realize that I have diabetes.  I stopped doing exercises because of the progressive health problems.  But I can’t control my blood sugar level since I Am in a strict diet. From her side it is true ,but the question whether it is the right way to control blood sugar?
