Excerpt:

"WHY DO YOU NEED TO DEVELOP A HEALTHY EATING PLAN?

If you have diabetes or prediabetes, your doctor will likely recommend that you see a dietitian to help you develop a healthy eating plan. This plan will help you control your blood sugar (glucose) and manage your weight and heart disease risk factors, such as high blood pressure and high blood fats."

Food fuels our body. Learning how to eat and how not to eat creates an important base for our daily programs. We take control of our own self-care and plan our meals with the intent to nourish and strengthen our bodies.

Healthy foods play a big role in our planning, and Roger is continually looking for new ideas, suggestions, and recipes. We eat our nutritious breakfast of steel-cut oats topped with berries, and we enjoy a glass of ice cold, mouth-watering milk. With happy, satisfied tummies, we make our plans for our lunch and dinner and snacks for the remainder of the day.

"When you eat extra calories and fat, your body creates an undesirable rise in blood glucose. If blood glucose isn’t kept in check, it can lead to serious problems, such as a high blood glucose levels (hyperglycemia) that, if persistent, may lead to long-term complications such as nerve, kidney, and heart damage. You can help keep your blood glucose levels in a safe range by making healthy food choices and tracking your eating habits.

For most people with Type 2 diabetes, weight loss also can make it easier to control blood glucose, and it offers a host of other health benefits. If you need to lose weight, a diabetes diet provides a well-organized, nutritious way to reach your goal safely."
