Essential Diabetic Diet for a Healthier Lifestyle

  • PREP: 10 minutes
  • COOK: 10 minutes
  • 4 Servings

Recently, I shared my experience with high cholesterol. Now, I am doing my best to change my lifestyle and diet to become healthier. Reading up on tips, I came across the diabetic diet. Diabetics need to maintain their blood sugar levels by avoiding foods high in sugar such as sweets and rice. I cannot live without rice so I cannot imagine not having to include it in my diet. Good thing I am not diabetic.

Healthy eating

Most people believe that when we become diagnosed with diabetes, we are no longer allowed to enjoy food that we were used to.  Well, I think that such a statement is both right and wrong. With diabetes, foods that are especially high in sugar, fat, salt and cholesterol are a huge NO-NO.  But it is also wrong because there is a way to still enjoy food as we used to.

It is called “portion-control”  which is limiting the amount of daily food consumption. This is why portion-control is significant to weight loss and a diabetic diet.

A diabetic diet means eating foods that are low-sugar, low-fat, low-salt, low-cholesterol, and increasing the intake of healthier carbohydrates, high protein, and fiber.  Developing healthy eating habits early on in life would mean a better chance of a happier, healthier, and longer life.

Healthy Eating should Balance with a Healthy Lifestyle

In addition to eating a healthy, balanced diabetic diet, you are also encouraged to make lifestyle changes with the intent of becoming stronger, and healthier.  Here are some tips for you:

  1. Stay active with physical exercise.
  2. Manage body vitals and see your doctor regularly.
  3. Drink alcohol sensibly.
  4. Quit smoking.
  5. Be mindful of the glycemic index of foods. Glycemic index or GI is the relative ranking of carbohydrates as to their effect on blood sugar level. Remember:  High glycemic index is bad, while the low glycemic index (i.e. 55 or less) is good.
