Hi, after being newly diagnosed type 2 (last week) I’m on day 2 and trying to follow the suggested plan in the back of the 8 week BSD recipe book as closely as I can. However, I have a couple of questions:
1. How much impact on the diet does substituting other recipes/choices e.g swapping thai red curry for something slightly less spicy (love spice can’t do heat 😳) but with the same calorie count?
2. I realise that the 8 week plan has been put together for maximum variation a good balance of nutrients etc, how much impact on reducing blood sugars would having porridge twice a week vs just once?
3. Have other people found the best results by sticking firmly to the suggested meal plan or did some of you do lots of substitutions?
