    Tip of the Week

    Grocery shopping can be time consuming and frustrating for those with diabetes.  Focus on shopping around the perimeter of the store to choose less processed and more fresh foods (the aisles tend to have less fresh and more processed foods).  Many fresh foods will not have food labels, so follow these tips when shopping:
    • begin with the produce section - choose a variety of colors of fresh whole vegetables and fruits,
    • next stop is the bakery - this can be a tempting area but focus your attention on whole grain breads,
    • move to the meat department and choose seafood, poultry, and smaller amounts of other lean meats,
    • last stop around the perimeter is the dairy section - focus on fat free and low fat milk, cheese, and yogurt.

    You are now ready to enter the aisles of the grocery store.  Be cautious of high fat and high sodium items found in the aisles.  Select products to complement the foods you have chosen from the perimeter.  Happy shopping!

    Featured Article - Can I eat sugar?

    In the past, when someone was diagnosed with diabetes, they were told they should not eat sugar.  The thinking was that sugar affected blood sugar more than complex carbohydrates (table sugar compared to a slice of bread). That thinking has ...

    Greg's Exercise Tips

    A workout parter is a great motivator!

    Last week Christine and I started lifting weights together at Gold's Gym in Tucson.  I found myself working a little harder and we were consistent with getting into the gym all week.  If your schedule permits, try to workout with somebody else for motivation and consistency.  I think you will find the exercise session goes by much quicker too!

    I went online and found your program.  WOW, I am so impressed with how you have 'put it all together.'  I started on your breakfasts menu Friday morning and shopped with your shopping list Friday.  What a manageable program.
