What should be there in your plate???
Weight loss should be your first goal when it comes to managing diabetes. Whatever strategy you choose for this — whether it’s low carb, high-protein, or something else — it’s important to make healthy choices. This will help you control your diabetes, your blood pressure, and your cholesterol while also giving your body what it needs for a long and healthy life.
One way to do this is to follow the strategy given by your diabetologist. The advice is simple and straightforward.
Divide your plate in half.
Fill one side with vegetables (preferably non-starchy ones) and fruits.
Fill the other side with whole grains and healthy protein.
Minimize refined grains such as white rice and white bread, from which fiber has been removed.
Choose healthier protein sources, such as pulses and beans
Use healthy oils.
