The Diabetes Diet
Updated: Aug 17, 2020
Are you always on the look-out for meals? I’m sure most of you know that if you have diabetes choosing the wrong diet could harm your health. Healthy eating can help you prevent, control and even reverse diabetes.
What should you eat?
Whether you’re trying to prevent or control diabetes, your nutritional needs are same as everyone else, so no special foods are necessary. But you do need to pay attention to some of your food choices. If you have diabetes, you should focus on-
·Healthy fats from nuts, olive oil, fish oils, flax seeds, or avocados
·Fruits and vegetables—ideally fresh, the more colorful the better; whole fruit rather than juices
·High-fiber cereals and breads made from whole grains
·Fish and shellfish, organic chicken or turkey
·High-quality protein such as eggs, beans, low-fat dairy, and unsweetened yogurt
· Trans fats from partially hydrogenated or deep-fried foods
· Packaged and fast foods, especially those high in sugar, baked goods, sweets, chips, desserts
· White bread, sugary cereals, refined pastas or rice
· Processed meat and red meat
· Low-fat products that have replaced fat with added sugar, such as fat-free yogurt.
Carbohydrates have a big impact on your blood sugar levels—more so than fats and proteins—so you need to be smart about what types of carbs you eat. Limit refined carbohydrates like white bread, pasta, and rice, as well as soda, candy, packaged meals, and snack foods. Focus on high-fiber complex carbohydrates—also known as slow-release carbs. They are digested more slowly, thus preventing your body from producing too much insulin.
Keep a Food Diary-
An ongoing report found that individuals who kept a food journal lost twice as much weight as the individuals who didn't. Why? A set up account causes you distinguish issue zones, for example, your evening nibble or your morning latte—where you're getting a larger number of calories than you realized. It additionally expands your familiarity with what, why, and the amount you're eating, which encourages you cut back on thoughtless.
