Diabetes And Diet

When you find you are insulin resistant or that you are in fact diabetic you might feel diet is impossible for you to follow. Gone are the days you can run into the convenience store or small grocery and come out with a quick meal. You might find yourself constantly asking ‘what can I eat?’ The answer to diet and diabetes often lies in being more prepared than you were before when it comes to food, but it doesn’t have to mean not having a tasty meal or snacks.

Blood Sugar Management

When shopping and when preparing foods the concentration now is not only in having a meal with an enjoyable taste and one that’s satisfying. You also need to pay attention to those foods that help or hinder blood sugar management. Reading the labels of foods is key to keeping an eye out for hidden or dangerous levels of sugar. Typically, eliminating those foods, which are processed and then concentrating on natural foods will give you the best selections.

Grains, Starchy Vegetables And Fats

You don’t have to completely give up those foods that aren’t necessarily helpful for blood glucose management. When looking at grains look for whole grains as these are the most nutritious and will give a meal the most vitamins, minerals, and fiber for its calorie load.

Carbohydrates: Healthy and Unhealthy Fats - Fats gets lots of attention when you are managing or trying to avoid developing the condition. Learning the difference between healthy and non-healthy fat will allow you to have the right amount to remain healthy and still control your blood sugar levels well. Eating less saturated fat is recommended. This means less ground beef, bologna, bacon and spareribs, as well as real butter, and cream sauces. Monounsaturated fat, such as found in avocado, olive oil, and peanut butter is better. Polyunsaturated fat you find walnuts, soybean oil, and sunflower oil is also recommended. Omega-3 fatty acids are recommended as these help to prevent clogging of the arteries. Several types of fish, and seafood’s are high in omega-3 fatty acids.

Having snacks available, and carrying these with you is one way to avoid the temptations of snack machines, convenience stores, or coffee shops. Carrying snacks high in low-calorie protein like low-fat, low calories cheese and eggs. Lunches including fish such as catfish, cod, and flounder are also great tasting and filling.
