  • Fill your Tummy Up

Try to eat at least 8 grams of the fibre during every meal, particularly when it is about carbohydrate-rich foods. This assists you in diabetes management as it keeps you full for a longer period of time, and is also beneficial for the health of your heart.

Prefer eating:

  • Barley
  • Beans
  • Vegetables like sweet potatoes, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, and carrots, etc.
  • Fruits like apples, pears, and berries, etc.
  • Peas
  • Oats
  • Be Careful with your Portions

Do you know how much carbs, calories, fibre, and fat are present in your diet? Don’t worry. Just hook yourself to the recommended serving size and you are just done with it.

  • Swap Some of the Carbs with Good Fats

The monounsaturated fats such as olive oil, canola oil, nuts, and avocados are great in blood sugar regulation. All you need to take care of is eating these in moderation. You can incorporate avocado and nuts to your salads and entrees. Cook your food using olive oil and canola oil.

  • Choose your Drink Smartly

Keep a close check on the sugar, calories, and alcohol. If you don’t feel like having plain water, give a try to fizzy and flavoured water that does not have any sugar. You can also enjoy calorie-free tea or coffee after having your meal.

  • Opt for Foods that do not raise your Blood Sugar

Some of the preferred options that you can incorporate in your diet comprise fish, poultry, lean meat, salad vegetables, avocados, eggs, and cheese. These are the food sources that help you balance the foods that have carbs.

  • Munch on Salads

Prepare your salad in such a way that it becomes easy for you to have it any time of the day. Take an air-tight container and store a big spinach salad in it without any dressing. It becomes easy to munch on this salad whenever you feel like while using your preferred dressing.

While keeping these tips in mind, you need to carry out your blood sugar test on regular periods using aglucometer. This is just to make sure you have stable glucose levels.
