Being a diabetic is all about getting your 2500 or so calories a day and minimizing the number of carbs you eat.
Protein is easy to find: eggs, protein powder, etc.
So it’s all about finding foods that are highest in fat and lowest in carbs.
For example, sour cream is way better than cottage cheese and yogurt.
Individual brands of the same product can have different ratios, so it’s not just the food, but the brand that really matters.
Here is a list of some of the best foods that are readily available and the fat/net carb ratio of each food (higher numbers are better):
Pure fat (zero carb)
MCT oil (Whole Foods)
Best Foods Mayonnaise
