  • Foods for Diabetic People

    The diabetic diet needs to fit the person's lifestyle. A good meal- plan will fit in with their schedule and eating habits. The meal plan helps if the person with diabetes needs to gain weight, lose weight, or maintain weight. It will also help keep the blood sugar in control, and prevent heart and blood vessel disease.

    Foods that are dangerous for diabetics can vary with each individual, some people can have a serious reaction to one type of food where another person will not. The reaction you will notice is a rise in your blood glucose levels. A useful guideline about the foods that are dangerous for diabetics is as follows:

    Refined sugars are found in soft drinks and different foods

    High saturated fat foods

    Fried foods

    An overload of dairy products in your diet

    Take-away foods

    Avoid too much alcohol

    Foods that contain too much salt

    Avoid quick fix meals that include processed foods that have not nutritional benefits

    Too much meat, poultry, fish, and eggs in your diet

    A high fiber diet is the cornerstone of treatment of most diseases and specially insulin related disorders. An interesting finding is that during the world war when all British nationals were eating whole wheat flour, the incidence of diabetes fell by 50%! One can eat whole wheat porridge, whole wheat bread and oats as it contains soluble fiber which is very good for diabetes, cholesterol and obesity. Whole-grains are also rich in chromium which is mostly deficient in diabetics.
