Enjoy Eating With The Diabetic Diet

Author : Cortney Yoder


Those that are diagnosed with diabetes need to be told that it is possible to control many aspects of this disease. This disease can be handled more appropriately if you change your lifestyle. By modifying certain behaviors and habits, you will be participating in what is typically called the diabetic diet. Stabilizing your blood sugar levels can be done with proper nutrition. To further improve your health, you can do regular exercise daily. If you are overweight, then just resolve to lose it. In the following paragraphs, you'll read information about the diabetic diet.

A well known part of the diabetic diet approach is called the ABC component. The goal is to create healthy levels of cardiovascular functions and blood chemistry. Blood sugar levels, measured over a three month average, are part of the A factor done with a hemoglobin A1c test. Your blood pressure is referenced by the B component. Your cholesterol levels are measured by the C component that takes into account HDL and LDL levels Obviously, you want to have all three factors in the green, or healthy region.

It is a good idea to get into the habit of reading food labels. Start tracking the amounts of sugar and carbohydrates in the foods you buy.

Set a limit on the amount of carbohydrates you consume in a day. If you want to enjoy a slice of cake, you will need to cut out carbohydrates somewhere else. That is called carbohydrate substitution and is important for you to know and do.

If you have diabetes, the use of artificial sweeteners is a recommended substitute. Your daily diet will not be influenced by additional carbohydrates when using these sugar substitutes. However, using artificial sweeteners does not guarantee you will not get any extra carbohydrates, ever. Before you consume anything, always default to reading the food labels before you eat anything. A table for glycemic indexes should be consulted any time you are using an artificial sweetener. Being aware of the gram amount of carbohydrates per serving is an excellent way to cut back on the carbs.

The diabetic diet has many important aspects to it. It's not difficult to learn about and your doctor can help you. You will still have freedom in your meals when you follow the above strategy.

But it's important to talk to your doctor about carbohydrate substitution. Because there can be exceptions to the rules, you should make sure it is safe for you to follow.
