The End To Demonizing Foods In Diabetes Care

Shannon Leininger

"Sometimes we hear about any foods that are carbohydrates in general, which is a very general term, but and those have been demonized as well. And this is really kind of problematic, because when we start to label foods as good or bad, we start to associate value with that." - Shannon Leininger, MED, RD, LD, CDCES, CHES
