Diet Tips for Diabetic Patients

1). Try to take in at least 8 grams of fiber with every meal, especially if you eat a meal higher in carbs. Fiber helps to regulate blood sugar, helps you feel fuller longer, and is great for heart health!
2). Eat whole wheat and whole grains like oats and barley.
3). Great food options are lean cuts of meat, low fat dairy, and proteins like beans, lentils, or nuts. These foods are lower in saturated fats.
4). Foods that won’t spike your blood sugar are lean meat, poultry, fish, eggs, and cheese. Foods high in protein can help to balance the carbs that you intake.
