tetsujin070561: okonomiyagi: This version of Battle Rice is from Pony Canyon VHS tapes, an official product of Fuji TV. So, it has been seen outside Japan, but not on USA television.

Does anyone know of any good recipes for diabetic people? My dad was diagnosed with type 2 (non-insulin dependant) type on Monday, and we're a bit stumped on what things we can make for him. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

As I understand it, it's not only sugar content that has to be watched, it's fat content as well. I don't have any specific recipes, but I'd suggest grilled or baked items instead of fried, and lots of veggies.
Didn't the doctor give him any sort of written guidelines/meal plans?

Hi HC, no, we didn't get any written plans or guidelines. All he was given was some tablets to try and control the sugar level, and was told to "watch what he ate" (not helpful at all). It came as a real shock - he went for a checkup the day before he went into hospital for 2 knee arthriscopes, and was told the news then. It seemed as though the doctor was more interested in the operation. We've got to go back for another visit in the next couple of weeks, so I'll ask some more specific questions then
Sorry to hear that keroppikeroppi007. The only new I can tell you is for meal planning is that you need a nutritionist and as the specialist a endocrinologist. When I was diagnosed the doctor wouldn't tell me either and that I should go see a nutritionist. That was useful to a degree and more or less someone controlling your diet. I found the biggest no nos are pure sweets like sugar and honey, and fruit juice. The doctor visits and blood test are very important and will be frequent for the first six months. That is so the doctor has some history and also that they could adjust the medicine. Many of the diabetic recipes involve a system call carb counting. Lower total car (carb and sugar), salt and fat. Plus plenty of water. Surprising enough though some of the recipes call for small amounts of sugar or similar type of sweetener. Splenda is a good sweetener but not good for baking or caramelizing. You can find some recipes at the splenda website and also the American diabetic association website. The American diabetic association webstite I found more helpful than the nutritionist. But that is only me. I hope this helps.
