What is the difference between an NSSS DIET and a DIABETIC DIET?
NSSS or No Sources of Simple Sugar DIET is simply restricting sugar and sweets. It is usually an added restriction in monitoring elevated blood sugar level. Table sugar, honey, molasses, candies, cakes, soft drinks, chocolates, pastries, jam, jelly and any food containing sugar are to be avoided. Sugar substitute may be advised. A DIABETIC DIET is automatically with NSSS restriction in addition to monitoring of complex carbohydrates as this is also broken down into sugar. Rice exchanges such as rice, bread, pasta, oats, etcetera need to be seen to. Fruit will also have to be limited depending on the dietitians computation and the elevation of sugar. Due to complications of diabetes, salt and fat at times have to be moderated.
