Diabetics always have to be careful of what and how they eat. Here are a few do’s and don’s to help you decide whats wrong and whats right.
- Fruits and vegetables –
Whole fruits and veggies ensure that you get all your needed vitamins, minerals and fiber. Certain fruits and vegetables also include much needed healthy fats. These include avocados and soybeans.
- Whole Grains –
Whole grains are another great source of vitamins and fiber. They are digested over a longer period of time than processed foods, which helps stabilize blood sugar levels.
- Eating Right –
I’m not talking about WHAT you should be eating, but HOW you should be eating. Instead of eating 3 large meals a day – where you often get hungry in between and eat unhealthy snacks or over eat at lunch time – break up your daily meal plan into 6 or so smaller, balanced meals so that you feel full throughout the day and can avoid snacking and overeating.
- Trans fats –
Numerous studies have shown that chemically altered plant-based fats are not good for your heart or your health in general. Stay away from food that contains trans fats as far as possible.
- Processed sugars –
Processed sugar is found in all kind of food today, even the ones that do not taste sweet including sugary soft drinks and potato chips. These processed sugars cause blood sugar levels to fluctuate and can eventually lead to type 2 diabetes.
- Refined Carbohydrates –
Found in food like white bread, cookies and cake, these refined carbohydrates act in way that is very similar to processed sugar. They cause blood sugar levels to shoot up and fall back down the whole time, due to the fact that they are digested very quickly. It increases the risk of type 2 diabetes dramatically.
