DIABETES MANAGEMENT
HEALTHY TIPS FOR DIABETES DIET

Consistent eating habits can help you control your blood sugar level. Every day try to eat about the same amount of food at about the same time. Include a variety of foods to help meet your nutritional goal.


 


Eat complex carbohydrates.


During digestion, sugars (simple carbohydrates) and starches (complex carbohydrates) break down into blood sugar. Focus on complex carbohydrates. Foods with complex carbohydrates have low glycemic index.




  •  Fruits


  • Vegetables


  • Whole grains


  • Legumes (beans, peas and lentils)


  • Low-fat dairy products

Choose fiber-rich foods


Dietary fiber includes all parts of plant foods that your body can't digest or absorb. Fiber can decrease the risk of heart disease and help control blood sugar levels. Aim for 25 to 30 grams of fiber each day. Foods high in fiber include:




  • Vegetables


  •  Fruits


  •  Legumes (beans, peas and lentils)


  • Whole-wheat flour


  • Wheat bran


  • Nuts

 


Limit saturated and trans fats


 


Diabetes increases your risk of heart disease and stroke by accelerating the development of clogged and hardened arteries. That's why heart-healthy eating becomes part of your diabetes diet. Get no more than 7 percent of your daily calories from saturated fat, and say no to  trans fat completely.


 


Curb dietary cholesterol


 


To reduce how much cholesterol you eat:




  •  Use lean cuts of meat instead of organ meats


  •  Choose egg substitutes over egg yolks


  • Opt for skim milk over whole milk products

 


Eat heart-healthy fish at least twice a week
