          Diabetes Recipes To Control Diabetes
How is diabetes managed? Planning your food consumption Three things will have a major impact on your blood glucose and blood lipids (cholesterol, triglycerides) levels
• What you eat
• How much you eat
• When you eat
Eating well is one of life's greatest pleasures. Fortunately, having diabetes does not prevent you from enjoying a wide variety of foods. People with diabetes have the same nutritional needs as anyone else. Learn to eat well-balanced meals in the correct amounts, stay fit, and take your prescribed medications, and you can thrive with diabetes.
Eat To Beat Diabetes
How do you know what to eat?
Try to eat a variety of foods and to be aware of which foods contain carbohydrate. Carbohydrate raises blood sugar higher and more quickly than any other nutrient does.
• A dietitian or diabetes educator can help you learn to keep track of how much carbohydrate you eat and how much you need.
• Protein, fat, and fibber do not raise blood sugar as much as carbohydrate does. If you eat a lot of these nutrients in a meal, your blood sugar will rise more slowly than it would otherwise.
• Spread carbohydrate throughout the day. Eat some carbohydrate at all meals, but do not eat too much at any one time. Carbohydrate is found in sugar, breads and cereals, fruit, starchy vegetables such as potatoes and corn, and milk and yogurt.
