  1. I am of Indian (India) origin, living in U S A for over 45 years. I am vegetarian. But we us We make curries with split dry beans, add vegetables to them. And we sprout the beans (like Moong, Lentils, Chickpeas, green peas etc. For sprouting, put them in water for about 6 to 8 hours, then place them on a cotton cloth and tie them, cover them under a cover and keep it in a warm place for another 8 to 10 hours. Then we cook them with seasonings and spices or mix them uncooked in the salads. Dr. Ergin I regularly watch your Videos. They are very very helpful. You explain every thing very nice way. Please keep it up. Thank you so much for all the advice.

  2. Thanks for your presentation on beans. My question: Does your advice refer to ALL beans? I ask because I use "black" beans more than any other, so I'm keen to find out. Also, I'm told that persons with kidney problems should stay away from foods with potassium but I imagine the "quantity" of potassium one consumes may be the over-riding factor. What are your thoughts?

  3. Dr. Ramadan is near I fasted 3 years ago 28 days but I got sick and couldn't complete the whole 30 days it is then when I found out Im daibetic. Can you help me what and how I can fast without effecting my levels. Im not a big meat eater.but I love my rice and beans down to a weely serving 5 tablespoon each plenty of salads, THANK YOU DR. SUGER.

  4. I'm from Nigeria and yes, we love beans๐Ÿ˜€. Personally it's my favourite thing to eat. We eat it with rice, bread, sweet potato, plantain, etc. We also blend it and make bean cakes and bean fritters. It's the diabetes meal of choice in Nigeria and typically diabetics eat it on it's own in pottage or porridge form. Hits the spot every single time ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‰
