Welcome back to the Diabetic Guide. This week, we're serving up some tips and recipes in our Guide to Nutritious Eating for Diabetics that can help manage your diabetes and boost your overall health.



Why Healthy Eating Matters

Eating a balanced, nutritious diet is a key part of managing diabetes. The right foods can help control your blood sugar levels, maintain a healthy weight, and prevent or manage heart disease.



Healthy Eating Tips

  1. Balance Your Plate: Aim for a mix of lean proteins, whole grains, fruits, and vegetables.

  2. Watch Portion Sizes: Even healthy foods can lead to weight gain and higher blood sugar levels if you eat too much. We will do another post on what an appropriate portion size for you is.

  3. Limit Processed Foods: They often contain hidden sugars and unhealthy fats.

  4. Stay Hydrated: Choose water over sugary drinks to stay hydrated without raising your blood sugar levels. A good way to know if your getting enough water is to use a calculation 0.033 x your body weight in kg.
