Try to choose fruits and vegetables in a range of colours. Include them in every meal and snack. Non-starchy vegetables are the lowest in calories and carbohydrates.
No matter whether you are a diabetic or not, the nutrition needed by your body is same as for any other normal person (without diabetes). So, you don’t need to consume anything special, though you need to take care of the number of calories you intake. Your choice of food matters and most importantly the carbohydrates.
Fortunately, you have more control over your health than you think. By eating healthy, doing some physical activity and losing weight you can control your diabetes and even reverse it in some cases. By losing just 5 to 10 percent of your weight, you can lower your blood sugar level, lower blood pressure and lower cholesterol. Also, losing weight and eating healthy will have a profound effect on your energy, mood and sense of well-being. So even if you already developed diabetes it’s not too late to make positive changes.
Dry fruits seem like a healthy snacking option but for diabetic people, it’s not really the case. The fructose in dry fruits may spike your sugar level. So, try having fresh fruits instead of dry fruits.
