Serving size matters … that is.
The American Diabetes Association or as I like to refer to them… American Diabetes Ass., likes to tell everyone that they do not promote a high carb meal plan. Sadly, many diabetics believe them.
To some degree the ADA is able to ‘get away with this’ thanks to TINY serving sizes.
When you look at this recipe from the ADA website and specifically look at the nutritional information… to most diabetics, it would not look HORRIBLE.
“only 24 grams” of carbs PER SERVING! … that’s more than I eat most days. Let’s take a closer look….
In the entire recipe, there is 6 servings TOTAL. Listed in the ingredients is a grand total of … 12 ounces of ground beef.
Note: That is less meat than I eat in most meals.
Let me do some quick math here…. wow… 2 oz of meat PER SERVING!!!!
How many people… how many DIABETICS, most of whom are obese, carb addicts are going to eat a single serving.
I can see MANY of them eating the whole thing … and washing it down with a Pepsi or Sweet Tea.
By the way, I could easily eat the whole thing (minus the buns) … most of my meals have more than 12 oz of meat.
Below you can see 24 grams of carbs… per serving. To receive a decent amount of food a person could EASILY eat the entire recipe which would mean a total of 144 grams of carbs.
Not many people could EAT one serving… unless they were filling up on cookies, cakes and pasta… or some other high carb foods pimped by the ADA.
It’s immoral, unethical and should be illegal to SELL this as diabetes friendly.
Note: The reason 90% of diabetics fail? …they try to eat a low fat, low protein HIGH carb meal plan like the one above.
Need more ‘proof’?
The ADA and all their minions promote a high carb, grain based meal plan… there is NO doubt.
Do not let them lie about it… stand up and tell your doctor or diabetes educator that YOU will not take the lies anymore.
YOU deserve the truth!!!
