This will get your protein ratio to 1:1.if you want to eat non veg. Your goal should be to bring this veg:nonveg. ratio to 3:1.Animal proteins are never ever fully digested by our body and result in waste products which are to be excreted by our kidneys.

Is Jaggery ok for diabetes?

Deeksha Khare says

Jaggery contains sucrose and fructose in equal portions; as you know, sucrose metabolises to glucose rapidly on ingestion and can alter blood sugar levels, not a good thing for a diabetic. Fructose does not affect blood sugar levels but the sucrose can. So unless it cannot be resisted at all, avoiding jaggery would be a good idea for a diabetic. Then again it depends on how often you eat jaggery. If it is a rare and not extravagant indulgence I am sure the body can cope with the increased glucose load that day.

Type 1 diabetes is a metabolic disorder that affects the glucose metabolism and increases the blood glucose level. Type 1 diabetes is considered to be an autoimmune disorder where the immune cells of the body wrongly attack the beta cells of the pancreas that produce insulin. In absence of insulin, the body cells cannot utilize glucose and its level increases in the blood. Glucose is an important source of energy for the body cells. In absence of glucose the body cells start breaking down fat and muscles for energy, which are responsible for weight loss in people with type 1 diabetes. Though weight loss is common with type 1 diabetes, if more than 5% of the body weight or 5 kilos is lost, your treating doctor must be consulted. Other reasons for weight loss in people with type 1 diabetes are: · Addison’s disease · Depression · Chronic diarrhea · Recurrent infection · Hyperthyroidism · Malnutrition
