I wonder why lots of people still don’t connect food to their health. I mean, I just don’t get it. What you eat is so critically important to your health that it’s crazy why people will even doubt that simple and universal truth. You see, your health as a diabetic rests heavily on what you eat. No the diet does not cure, but it can worsen your condition if you don’t pay attention; and it can help your treatment and healing process if you are consistent about it.
There are foods you can eat that lower your tolerance for proteins. You need to identify these foods and not eat them so often. Added to the fruit and vegetables you are going to have to eat a lot of from now on, that is an added way to manage your diabetes diet.
See your diabetes diet not as a pain in the neck, but as a blessing. The doctor has found out why you have been ill all this time, and had prescribed that you go easy on some foods, and indulge in others for your own health. You should be grateful, not gloomy.
It does not matter how much you dislike the diabetes diet, you don’t have much of a choice in the matter if you want to stay alive. I suggest you begin to buy your new stock of foods, and that you begin to love them too. That oughtn’t to be a lot of trouble, is it?
When prescribed a diabetes diet, you should try out various forms of milk. Even if they are not on the primary list that the doctor gave you, be rest assured that they are good for your health.
I know some dieticians who will recommend that you take four or six small meals a day to deal with your diabetes. Others will suggest three large ones, adhering strictly to the diabetes diet that the proffer. I say read up on it, and find a balance in between that suits you.
In a diabetes diet, you need to regulate your intake of a lot of what you eat. Especially when it comes to carbohydrates and foods filled with calories and glucose. If you must eat them at all, make sure they are in traces. The vitamins are what you need. Don’t take this tip lightly because it just might save your life, if you adhere to it.
When you get your list of ‘new’ meals for a diabetes diet I suggest that you write them all down in a list. And ask the doctor to specify how far you can starch your choices. Then break them down into days of the week and meals of the day. And when you cook make a feast of each meal! It doesn’t all have to end because you can’t ever eat a king’s burger.
You know, if you could learn how to eat frequent and small meals, you might be eventually able to adjust yourself into the new diabetes diet. Do it in conjunction with blood sugar testing from time to time so that you never get to killing yourself by it.
Glucose is the sugar in your food that your system cannot handle when you have diabetes. This is happening because the insulin you need is either not being produced, or not being handled well by your system. You can try for other sugars in your diet, such as fructose, found in fresh fruits. Those don’t need insulin for absorption.
