You Are What You Eat
Eating well is important for a healthy, happy life. But, eating well doesn’t have to be boring!
People with Diabetes need to develop healthy eating habits. Because blood sugar is affected by what you eat, eating a variety of healthy foods at regular times helps to regulate your blood sugar. Great eating habits include:
- Start the day with breakfast
- Reduce portion sizes
- Choose fruits and vegetables to make up 50% of your plate
- Cut down on foods high in saturated fats
- Avoid excessive sweets
These diet changes help people to manage high blood pressure and high cholesterol as well as reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke.
You don’t need special foods, and your meals do not need to be complicated.
