being an athlete means, by default, that you should eat healthily;
being a diabetic in addition to it, requires a healthy lifestyle and eating habits, not only to look good, be strong, or perform well but to stay alive and prevent all the bad stuff that can happen to you…
people often ask me things like “what do you eat?”, or “is it a problem for you that you cannot eat like your teammates?” – to tell you the truth, having diabetes, in my case, is not a drawback, it’s a “perk”. I know it must sound ridiculous, but I have a sweet tooth, and now I have to skip on sweets and processed sugar, something I certainly wouldn’t do this often, had I not been in this position.
this “cookbook” is my answer to all the questions regarding what a “poor diabetic” professional athlete eats
and I hope that at least some of you will find this inspiring.
