Diabetes Diet Part Two

Diet at a glance -

Remember it is not a no sugar diet but a low sugar diet!

Sweets, chocolates, toffees, fudge, mints can be eaten as treats occasionally, best after a meal - be sensible about portions - a small slice of cake on a special occasion is better than not having any!

Cut down on crisps - opt for low fat versions

Try grilling, baking or steaming foods

Limit chips to once a week or try oven chips

Fruit or raw veg is a great between meal snack - celery, pepper and carrots are good examples

Increase your fruit & veg intake

Grate cheese to use less & try low fat varieties such as Edam & Gouda

Cut down on fried and fatty foods

High fibre foods are beneficial as they slow down the absorption of sugar into the blood

Have a balanced varied diet and enjoy your food

Opt for plain biscuits such as Rich Tea or Morning Coffee

Remember you can consult a dietician!
