A healthy diet is one of the best ways you can control your blood sugar levels making your life with diabetes much easier. A healthy diet can be easily attainable when you start counting carbs and work with your doctor or diabetes educator who can help come up with a meal plan specifically for you.
Your meal plan will set out a weekly what-to eat, when-to eat, and how-much to eat. It might include more protein, carbohydrates, and fats. Foods high in sugar will have to be cut out of your diet and depending on your goals, you will probably need to count carbs and caloric intake daily. You’ll also want to learn how to properly proportion your meals especially when going out to eat.
Avoid Unhealthy Eating Habits:
Some people find that they develop certain eating habits based off their emotions. Whether it be binge eating when you are stressed or upset or having no appetite, both are equally bad for your health and your goals. Learning to overcome these unhealthy eating habits will help you tremendously.
