Diabetes  Diet

Diabetes Diet

For optimum blood glucose control, for both type 1 and type 2 diabetes, it's important to eat a balanced diet - with regular daily meals/snacks - and following a regular exercise routine.

Diabetes Diet Advice

"The diet for diabetes is a balanced healthy diet, the same kind that is recommended for the rest of the population — low in fat, sugar and salt, with plenty of fruit and vegetables and meals based on starchy foods, such as bread, potatoes, cereals, pasta and rice."

Diabetes Diet Tips

  • What, when, and how much you eat all affect your blood glucose level.
  • You can keep your blood glucose at a healthy level if you:
    - Eat about the same amount of food each day.
    - Eat at about the same times each day.
    - Take your medicines at the same times each day.
    - Exercise at the same times each day.
  • Every day, choose foods from these food groups: starches, vegetables, fruit, meat and meat substitutes, and milk and yogurt. How much of each depends on how many calories you need a day.
  • Limit the amounts of fats and sweets you eat each day.

1200-1600 Calorie Diabetic Diet

If you are diabetic and want to eat about 1200-1600 calories while maintaining good blood glucose control, choose this many daily servings from these food groups:

- 6 starches (ideally low glycemic index)
- 2 milk and yogurt (lower fat)
- 3 vegetables
- 2 meat or meat substitute
- 2 fruit
- Up to 3 fats (low in saturated fats)

Satisfying Your Sweet Tooth as a Diabetic

  • Sweets are okay once in a while.
  • Try having sugar-free popsicles, diet soda, fat-free ice cream or frozen yogurt, or sugar-free hot cocoa mix.
  • Share desserts in restaurants.
  • Order small or child-size servings of ice cream or frozen yogurt.
  • Divide homemade desserts into small servings and wrap each individually. Freeze extra servings.
  • Don't keep dishes of candy in the house or at work.

Remember, fat-free and low-sugar foods still have calories. Talk with your diabetes teacher about how to fit sweets into your meal plan.

Diabetes Diet for Best Blood Sugar Control

In general, talk with your diabetes teacher to make a diet plan that is good for glycemic control and which fits the way you usually eat, your daily routine, and your diabetes medicines.

Advice on Diets

Special diets or diet plans with special diet foods are sometimes needed for particular health conditions. Ask your doctor, dietitian or nutritionist about your personal dietary needs. Otherwise, a balanced diet program containing foods from all the nutritional food groups is best.
