What does a typical diabetic menu look like?
A healthy-eating plan will help you control your blood sugar (glucose), manage your weight and control heart disease risk factors, such as high blood pressure and high blood fats.
Meal planning with diabetes is based on eating three meals a day at regular times. Consistent meals help control blood sugar.
During digestion, sugars (simple carbohydrates) and starches (complex carbohydrates) break down into blood glucose. Consider eating healthy carbohydrates, such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, and low-fat dairy products, such as milk and yogurt. Try to limit food or drinks with added fats, sugars and sodium.
Dietary fiber includes all parts of plant foods that your body can’t digest or absorb. Fiber promotes healthy digestion and helps control blood sugar levels. Foods high in fiber include vegetables, fruits, nuts, legumes, and whole grains.
Foods containing monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats can help lower your cholesterol levels. These include avocados, nuts, olive oil, and peanut oil. But don’t overdo it, as all fats are high in calories.
Foods to Avoid
Food rich in saturated fats, trans fats, cholesterol and sodium.
