Simple Dietary advice for people with diabetes


This simple advice is to help you until you see a dietitian.

When you see a Dietitian a personal diet plan will be discussed with you. This will take into account your likes and dislikes.

It is essential that your treatment includes up to date information about food

Your meals can be planned in your usual way - providing you follow the tips below. ~ Eat 3-4 meals spaced evenly throughout the day

~ Try not to miss a meal

~ Include something starchy e.g. bread, potatoes, rice, pasta, cereal, porridge, chapati wi th each meal

~ Try to choose those with a higher fibre content e.g. wholemeal bread, wholegrain cereals ete.

~ Include fruit and vegetables every day

~ Choose fruit instead of chocolate, sweets, asian sweets and cakes if you're hungry between meals

~ Do not add sugar to drinks or have sweetened drinks e.g. pop/squash

~ If you're used to sugar in drinks try an artificial sweetener instead and use low calorie fizzy drinks and squashes

~ If you like a pudding choose one of the following low sugar alternatives: fresh fruit, fruit tinned in natural juice, stewed fruit and custard (prepared without sugar) sugar free jelly, sugar free whip, diet yogurts, diet fromage frais
