Do you want to improve your health and blood sugars, but worry about eating more carbs if you move to a plant-based diet? You know eating plant-based would mean more fruit, whole grains and beans…which are all foods you may have severely limited or avoided before. So wouldn’t eating this way make your blood sugars go haywire and worsen your diabetes or prediabetes?

Let’s find out. In this episode, learn whether a plant-based diet would really be too high in carbohydrates for those with diabetes, or whether this way of eating can actually help improve and possibly even reverse this condition. I deeply hope this episode helps you in your health journey!
