Are LeafSide meals recommended for diabetics? (those with diagnosed Type 1 or 2 diabetes) or for pre-diabetics?

Thank you for your interest in LeafSide!  As a food company, please note that we cannot give personalized medical advice. We highly recommend working with a licensed lifestyle medicine professional (RD or MD) who can carefully review your situation and make a recommendation.

In general, a whole food plant-based (WFPB) diet has been shown to greatly help with diabetes symptoms, and can fully reverse type 2 diabetes as well as pre-diabetic symptoms, sometimes very quickly. Dr. Greger has some great videos on the topic of diabetes, summing up the current state of the art:

Please note: There are some great online-based organizations out there that provide lifestyle support and advice for those with diabetes. These include CHIP Health, Mastering Diabetes, and Diabetes Undone. We recommend checking these out as well!
