The American Council on Exercise - one of the large certification organizations for personal trainers - has stated that properly-planned vegetarian diets are suitable for athletes (including strength athletes).

Beans and fruits are very high in carbs, something a diabetic doesn't need. Actually nobody really needs any extra carbs.

Agreed, nobody needs any extra carbs.

However, both the American Diabetes Association and Diabetes UK specifically recommend that people eat beans, as well as certain fruits (berries).

As I made clear in my original post,,,the guy I know, obviously did not do his homework. Noted above; "...properly-planned vegetarian diets...

This is the part of being a Veggie, that is often missed by newbies as the do not understand the risks involved! That was the ONLY reason for me comments....

It is not safe if not done properly!

The American Diabetes Association also used to say that 180 after meals was great.

Geez - that's crazy - I usually give myself a couple of extra units if I test 180 or higher after 1.5 hours of having a meal.

If your mean average is 180 that would be in a ballpark of an 8 - 8.3 A1C. Just goes to show the diversity of thought when it comes to the management of diabetes.

Here is the American Diabetes Association's recommendation of beans: Diabetes Superfoods: American Diabetes Association®

Here is Diabetes UK's recommendation of beans: https://www.diabetes.org.uk/guide-to...s-and-diabetes

Could you provide a link to substantiate the ADA's statement about post-meal blood sugar?

From the ADA

From Medical News Today

I don't remember reading being over 180 as OK by the ADA, but have read numerous posts in forums where dietitians and nutritionists have told them that it was OK to go over 180 as long as their BG came back down after an hour or two.

And that advice, IMHO, is total crap.
