I want to add diabetic to my Dr. Gourmet Diet Plan profile of Coumadin and low sodium. It is not a choice on signin. How can I do that?
There's no selection for a diabetic diet because the foundation of all Dr. Gourmet recipes as well as The Dr. Gourmet Diet Plan is the Mediterranean style diet. Both the American Diabetic Association diet and the American Heart Association diet are based on this style diet, and we know from recent research that a Mediterranean style diet is the best diet for those with Type 2 diabetes.
Checking the boxes for low sodium and Coumadin use will help you create a diet that should work well with your diabetes.
