Ayurvedic Diet for Diabetes: dos and don’ts

According to Ayurveda, your body is divided into three biological energies, which broadly controls your bodily functions. Dr Reena Rawat, Senior Ayurvedic Doctor, Dr Shikha's NutriHealth says, "Vata dosha is responsible for all the micro and macro movements in the body, Pitta dosha is responsible for digestion and metabolism and Kapha dosha is for strength and growth. Diabetes is caused by the imbalance of Kapha and Vata doshas."

Overrated foods-

Cinnamon: It is believed to help reduce blood sugar levels, but there is not enough scientific evidence to support this.

Brown rice: It is assumed that brown rice has a lower glycemic index than white rice. It, however, is not the case. True glycemic value of brown vs. white rice is only marginally different and the differences usually get dampened while preparation due to components like fiber.

Sugar free products: A lot of sugar free processed foods are touted as healthy but they still contain a huge amount of fats, carbohydrates and calories.

Artificial sweeteners: Some artificial sweeteners may contain added preservatives and taste enhancers that can be more harmful than beneficial. Sometimes, new additives and enhancers are added without prior approval. Read the labels carefully before buying.

Ayurvedic foods to balance Kapha dosha: A person suffering from diabetes should avoid consuming rice, potato, sweet fruits, maida, wheat, deep fried foods, red meat and sabudana as much as possible.
