Controlling your diabetes by diet alone can feel like a challenge.
Good nutrition is vital to helping you manage your diabetes effectively. Eating foods packed with vitamins and minerals can be a good way of doing it.
It is a very good idea to eat a healthy diet at all times. The best way to do that is to watch your intake of sugar and refined carbohydrates.
However it is important not to deprive yourself. It is ok to have some sugar and fatty foods now and again.
Depriving yourself of your favourite treats will make you crave them more and more and eventually you will give in and pig out. (This is from someone who has done this.)
If you find that you fancy that Krispy Kreme doughnut, say that you can have it later. You may find that after an hour or after you have eaten something healthy that you don't want it anymore.
However if you are still craving it an hour later, have it and carry on eating a healthy diet afterwards.
This will make sure that your diabetes and nutrition are on the right track.
Another way to eat well is by cutting down on sweets, chocolate, cakes and biscuits. After that cut down on white bread, white pasta, white rice and potatoes. Replace those with wholemeal and brown versions of them.
Eat plenty of fruit and veg. Especially leafy greens and salads.
Also eat loads of protein. This can be found in meat, oily fish, chicken, eggs and cheese. They are also foods rich in
omega 3 and omega 6.
The best vitamins and minerals for diabetics to take are: Vanadium, Manganese, Magnesium, Zinc, Vitamin E, Selenium, chromium, Alpha-lipoic acid, GLA/linoleic acid, Vitamin B6, Biotin and Coenzyme......Click here to read why.....
So controlling diabetes with diet is not as hard as it seems.
