Whether you’re trying to prevent or control diabetes, your nutritional needs are virtually the same as everyone else, so no special foods are necessary. But you do need to pay attention to some of your food choices—most notably the carbohydrates you eat. Losing just 5% to 10% of your total weight can help you lower your blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels.

Losing weight and eating healthier can also have a profound effect on your mood, energy, and sense of wellbeing. Even if you’ve already developed diabetes, it’s not too late to make a positive change. By eating healthier, being more physically active, and losing weight, you can reduce your symptoms or even reverse diabetes.

If you take diabetes medication, regular mealtimes, and regular amounts of various foods help you get the most out of the least amount of medication. Because people with diabetes are at risk of high blood pressure or high blood fats, it makes sense to also choose foods that are heart-healthy (lean, low-fat) and ones that are low in salt.

The bottom line is that you have more control over your health than you may think. There is no single diabetes diet plan or meal plan, or diet that is diabetes-friendly that can serve as a correct meal plan for all patients with diabetes. Glycemic index, carbohydrate counting, the MyPlate method, and the TLC diet plan are all methods for determining healthy eating habits for diabetes management.
