You may be wondering now that you have diabetes, what can you eat? There’s a great deal of misinformation out there so it’s important to get the facts straight. A diabetes diet is basically a well-balanced, modified carbohydrate, nutrient-dense diet that is rich in vegetables, lean protein, healthy fat, and whole grains. Actually, it’s a diet that anyone would benefit from following!
Why Is Diet So Important?
Sticking to a healthy diet is one of the most important things you can do to help manage your diabetes. That’s because healthy eating helps you regulate your blood sugars, lose weight, reduce your risk for cardiovascular disease, and boost your energy levels.
Make It Personal
Although the diet concept is essentially the same for everyone when it comes to diabetes, your personal diet should be created and individualized to suit your specific needs – accounting for your culture, schedule, age, activity factor, other medical conditions, medicines, current weight, and overall goals.
In order to start a diet plan personalized for you, it’s a good idea to meet with a registered dietitian or certified diabetes educator. If you haven’t met with one yet, ask your doctor for a referral.
