Tips & Notes
Good nutrition starts in the kitchen, and with a little education. For people with diabetes, good nutrition is critical to keeping blood sugar levels under control. Surprisingly, watching what you eat does not mean losing what you like.
The first step to meal planning is working closely with a registered dietitian. Dietitians know how nutrition can better control patients’ blood glucose levels, while tailoring programs that suit their tastes and lifestyles.
What are some simple rules to good nutrition? Balancing out carbohydrates, proteins and fats. Eating a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, lean meats and whole grains can make a difference in your blood sugar. Keeping fat, especially saturated fat, at an appropriate level. Again, your dietitian can help you set-up your requirements.
What does this mean? You’re not necessarily restricted to what you can eat, as long as it can be incorporated into your daily meal schedule. And while most foods can be incorporated into a meal plan, sometimes special foods are very helpful.
