My mom was just recently diagnosed with diabetes type 2, and she's pretty overwhelmed. The thing that she's struggling with the most is what she can or cannot eat--the doctor wasn't too helpful, and I've been searching on the internet for her, but I keep getting conflicting reports. Some websites say coffee is bad for diabetics, others say it's okay. Does anyone out there who is diabetic (and who doesn't mind sharing) have any advice on food? My mom loves eating breads, pastas, and white rice (we are Chinese), and it's killing her that she can barely eat these foods now. Or can she, but with moderation? Please help!
