a healthy control of blood sugars and cholesterol is not possible only with healthy food.
We doctors advocate what is called as healthy lifestyle.
Which is a combination of good food, exercise and a calm and healthy mind also.
Now for healthy food, you need to have balanced diet
. But if you're diabetic and have high cholesterol then you need to cut down your carbohydrate and sugar
intake. I. E reduce rice, and eat things with high fiber like whole wheat, maize, ragi etc. Your protein intake must also be good. But instead of non veg which would increase your cholesterol, take egg whites, (the yellow part is very high in cholesterol), germinated pulses are high in protein. Also soya.
Reduce or avoid fried food and junk food and sweets and carbonated sweetened drinks like soda, cola etc.
Oil can also be changed to olive oil as it is low in cholesterol.
Eat plenty of raw fruits and vegetables. Diabetics are advised to avoid bananas, mangoes, grapes, but apples with skin on, oranges and mosambi are very good.
Raw vegetables and plenty of green leafy vegetables can be taken
make sure you exercise at least thirty minutes a day. A walk of fifteen to thirty minutes after food would reduce your blood sugar almost as much as a tablet.
Try to meditate at least ten minutes in a day.
