Diabetes Blogger David Mendosa Shares His Current Diet

He eats no more than 50-60 grams daily of total (not net or digestible) carbohydrates.  For example:

“Breakfast: Two poached eggs, 4 oz. of smoked wild salmon with capers added, and a little kimchi or sauerkraut.

Lunch: A large salad consisting of baby greens (including spinach and, when available, kale), bok choy, broccoli, and natto. For salad dressing I use apple cider vinegar and either extra virgin olive oil or extra virgin coconut oil. Sometimes the salad will also have green onions, green peppers, a small avocado, a can of sardines, mackerel, abalone, or salmon, a little hard cheese, a little summer squash, cucumber or radish slices, or a few pitted green olives. I always add a sprinkling of chia seeds.

Dinner: This is the meal that varies a lot. Sometimes it’s just a bowl of plain whole yogurt with a few organic blueberries (or organic raspberries when I can’t get the blueberries I prefer) and a sprinkling of chia seeds. Often instead it is a quarter pound of fish; wild ahi tuna is my favorite, but wild salmon is the healthiest, because of its high omega-3 level. Rarely it is beef, and only if it is grass-fed.”
