Weight loss and diabetes control both need changes in eating pattern and regular physical activity. You need to correct your diet wherever it’s going wrong. Focus on higher protein intake, lower fat and restrict carbohydrates to high fibre ones only. Avoid simple sugars completely. 'Eat Out' less and have good quantity of fresh foods (fruits, vegetables) which are not processed. Small and frequent meals are advised. Do not stuff, do not starve.

1. Diabetes can be controlled/managed by a proper regulated diet and exercise. 2. Avoid 3 big meals. Instead take small mini meals every 2/3 hours. 3. Take some protiens plus green vegetables/salad with every minimeal. 4. Avoid white foods like white rice, noodles, pizza, burger, white rotis. 5. Instead take whole grain foods like brown rice, multigrain atta, millets etc. 6. Avoid all forms of simple sugars/carbs like Colas, juices, sweets, cakes, biscuits etc. 7. Eat fruits with low/medium GI index like apple, guava, mosambi, orange. 8. Do at least 30-45 mins of exercise everyday. Walk for 10 mins after every meal. 9. These steps can help reduce sugar levels.
