Diabetic Diet

Over on one of the many web pages at the website of the Mayo Clinic, I read the following introductory paragraph:

“A diabetes diet simply means eating the healthiest foods in moderate amounts and sticking to regular mealtimes.

A diabetes diet is a healthy-eating plan that’s naturally rich in nutrients and low in fat and calories. Key elements are fruits, vegetables and whole grains. In fact, a diabetes diet is the best eating plan for most everyone.”

If you wish to read the entire article on that web page, click on over to:

Diabetes diet: Create your healthy-eating plan

Your diabetes diet is simply a healthy-eating plan that will help you control your blood sugar. Here’s help getting started, from meal planning to exchange lists and counting carbohydrates.
By Mayo Clinic Staff

The website for MedlinePlus also has a wealth of information on its web pages. The initiating paragraph of its Diabetic Diet Summary reads as follows:

“If you have diabetes, your body cannot make or properly use insulin. This leads to high blood glucose, or blood sugar, levels. Healthy eating helps keep your blood sugar in your target range. It is a critical part of managing your diabetes, because controlling your blood sugar can prevent the complications of diabetes.”

You may explore those MedlinePlus pages over at MedlinePlus / Diabetic Diet.

    No, what I wish to do is drink my Pepsi and eat my pizza in peace. My body thinks it has other plans, and my Doc’s in on it with ‘im. But they don’t know what weight I put on that quality of life “x” in their equation. BWA-HA-HA!

    Seriously, though, I would need a lot more dedication and discipline to do all that. And then get up every day and say, “My number is WHAT?”
