Diabetes - Nutrition

Having diabetes doesn’t mean you have to give up all the foods you like. But, you should follow some guidelines:

  • Eat foods that are rich in fiber such as whole-grain breads and cereals, fruits and vegetables and beans.
  • Choose healthy protein foods such as fish, poultry with skin removed, low-fat or fat-free milk, cheese and yogurt, and lean meat with all visible fat removed.
  • Limit foods high in unhealthy fats, such as butter, cream, cheese, bacon, ice cream and sweet bakery goods.
