Has anyone tried or is anyone following the raw food diet or the fruititarian diet? I keep hearing the people who are on it( who are not diabetic) say it's safe for diabetics. I'm not sure how I feel about this as I know with myself (i'm type 1 on insulin) if I eat too many fruits my blood sugar goes high and if I eat mostly veggies is goes too low. And juicing forget it my blood sugar goes up and besides i'd rather eat my food than drink it. It seems with a lot of the raw recipes they sweeten things with agave, honey etc all things that raise blood sugar. I'd love to hear anyone's thoughts on this diet for diabetic being one yourself on the diet or from a cde/dietitian.
