Remember when using your machine to do juicing as a diabetic to always be aware of the glycemic index on your fruits and vegetables. Berries tend to a good choice for a low glycemic fruit, and most vegetables are good choice, so allow yourself to enjoy the many soup and green drink recipes I have provided for you under Wellness Tips and Recipes page of this site. These recipes are loaded with amazing nutrients and fiber along with the antioxidants that help to prevent cancer.
Low Glycemic Fruits

This is a great article which includes a list of low glycemic fruits and vegetables.
Remember to get adequate levels of fiber in your diet to help control blood sugar levels. One gram of fiber will lower the glycemic index by one point. I like to use purple cabbage for this reason in everything I make. With the Vita Mix machine I can add cabbage to juice, soup, ice cream, sauces, no one can ever tell.
Exercise and Movement is also necessary for keeping the body healthy and burning off unwanted sugars and fats. Brisk walking is a very low impact enjoyable excercise to add into your daily routine.
