Good nutrition for Diabetes involves maintaining a well-balanced Diabetic diet plan (http://www.typefreediabetes.com/Articles.asp?ID=407) that includes whole grains, protein, dairy, vegetables, fruit and some unsaturated fats.

Americans are accustomed to seeing the traditional Food and Drug Administration pyramid on every cereal box and FDA-approved publication. While the American food guide pyramid and Mediterranean food pyramid is by all means healthy and comprehensive, we thought it would be fun to share food guide pyramids reflecting the histories of many other ethnic beginnings, cultures and beliefs.

The importance of nutrition for Diabetics requires that we find all sorts of ways to help you create a useful Diabetes food pyramid (http://www.typefreediabetes.com/Articles.asp?ID=344). To meet that goal will keep working to bring missing pyramids to you. As an option, pick one and adopt it as your own. Eating in the ways of our traditions cannot be a bad thing.

Our "friends" are our WORST enemies. Believe no one and only in yourself. Look at the bright side - your food requirement most probably will go down too
Good luck
