What Kind Of Meat Is Good For Diabetes?


Hello, I am Ty Mason of thediabetescouncil.com,
researcher, writer and I have type 2 diabetes. Today I want to talk what kind of meat is
good for diabetes. After you watch the video today, I invite
you check out the description box for my new ebook. This is one of the most comprehensive diabetes
meal planning book you can find. It contains diabetes friendly meals/recipes,
recipes for different goals such as 800-1800 calories per day meal plan, diabetes meal
planning tips and tricks. There are also tons of diabetes friendly recipes
for everyone! Let me state right up front, that religious
issues and other factors aside, I consider meat the flesh from an animal, mammal, amphibian,
fish, etc. With that being said, this question really
isn’t all that difficult. While I advocate that meat is an important
part of the diet for one with diabetes, not all meats are the same. I am in favor of an occasional steak and hamburger
each week. I think it helps us feel “normal” sometimes,
and those of you with diabetes will know exactly what I mean. Red meat does get a bad rap because of our
propensity for heart problems, but I am talking about a few meals each week, not 3 each day. But that advice given, the question didn’t
concern my opinion on how often to eat meat. The question is what kind of meat is good
for those with diabetes. And so, the overwhelming answer is fish. Why is fish so good for those with diabetes? Most fish and seafood is low in unhealthy
saturated fats, trans fat, and cholesterol. The fat that it contains is mostly healthy,
unsaturated fat. Seafood is a natural source of heart-healthy
omega-3 fatty acids. It’s packed with high-quality protein. Seafood itself does not have any carbohydrate,
so it will not cause blood glucose to rise. Most fish cooks quickly and makes for an easy
meal that your whole family will enjoy One key component to think about when discussing
good foods for diabetes is the Omega 3’s. Some types of fish are good sources of omega-3
fatty acids. These healthy fats may help to reduce the
risk of heart disease by decreasing triglycerides, blood pressure, slowing hardening of arteries,
and can also decrease the risk of arrhythmias. Sometimes, these fish high in omega-3s are
called “fatty fish”. Though fatty fish are a bit higher in calories
than their lower-fat counterparts, they contain mostly good fats and minimal unhealthy saturated
fats. We still consider them a great protein choice! Fish that are particularly high in omega-3s
include: Salmon
Trout Herring
Albacore tuna Mackerel
Halibut Sardines
Besides fish, you can get in more omega-3s by eating walnuts, flax, or by cooking with
vegetable oils such as canola, soybean, flaxseed, and walnut oil. In addition to helping with heart health,
omega-3s aid in fetal development during pregnancy, curb inflammation, they may protect against
Parkinson’s disease, and may reduce the risk for Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. The Omega 3 factor combined with a great source
of protein and the low carb element makes fish the best choice of “meat” for those
with diabetes. Don’t forget to get my new ebook and please,
