What you eat is important in managing diabetes. Do not fight against good nutrition. Consider these tips and ideas to make healthy eating a part of you daily busy schedule.
Decide ahead of time what and how much you will eat. Get ready to handle social pressure. The best way to handle social pressure is to just say “no thank you, I’m too full”.
Share a dessert with a friend, instead of overwhelming yourself with your own.
Have a daily exercise routine. Exercise is essential in controlling diabetes.
“Rate your plate” is a great way to practice portion control and to make sure you are eating a variety of healthy foods at each meal. When you sit down for a meal, draw an imaginary line through the center of your plate. Then draw a line to divide one section into two.
About one-fourth of your plate should be filled with grains or starch foods such as rice, pasta, potatoes, corn, or peas.
Another fourth should be protein, including foods like: meat, fish, poultry, or tofu.
For the last half of your plate, you can fill it with non-starchy vegetables like broccoli, carrots, cucumbers, salad, tomatoes, and cauliflower.
Add a glass of non-fat milk and a small roll or piece of fruit and you are ready to eat a healthy meal!
