  1. What bothers me (a diabetic) about the Potatoes is not that they are bad but that much potatoes ALONE without any real good protein or healthy fats and a ton of veggies is plain stupid for anyone. Carbs like Potatoes are a good starch but should be a SIDE to the Veggies (non starch) that are the main dish and protein another side.

  2. Meat, cheese, milk and oil for diabetics? No. This will give them diabetes. Pizza looks good minus the oil. Baked potatoes can be made with a cheeze made of corn that I make all the time. Please read Dr. Neal Barnard’s Program for Reversing Diabetes. Those who follow the plan, reverse their diabetes and it is the scientifically proven way to reverse diabetes (type 2).
