    Robert Lustig, MD and other researchers from UCSF and Stanford have shown that sugar consumption and diabetes are closely related. Moreover, they found that sugar is the only food that is related to diabetes.

    I’m not sure that it makes sense to recommend that diabetics consume extra sugar.

    My favorite recipe is what I call “Italian Chicken Breasts” You cut Breast into 2-3 serving size pieces and pound to flatten to 1/2″-2/3″ and marinate in Lowfat Zesty Italian dressing for 6-8 hours or overnight. Then bake in oven or grill for about 20-30 minutes. Serve with a salad and vegetable.
