From India:

Can a diabetic patient replace his morning meal/lunch completely with fruits, taking into consideration salt restrictions due to mildly elevated blood pressure, and obesity? The patient takes no medication.


I believe it is possible to use fruits at breakfast and lunch, as long as there is adequate protein content with the evening meal and for the day. I would suggest such a diet be reviewed by a dietician for protein content, calories, and essential nutrients.
