Three Healthy Ways To Eat As A Diabetic
If you’re thinking of going on a diet suitable for diabetics, then Reader’s Digest says there are three healthy eating tips to keep in mind. First, it’s the good fats that help. That’s according to a study by the National University of Singapore, which found that a high-fat diet–like the Mediterranean one–improved insulin resistance. But go easy on the fried chicken. Second, Harvard University found that moderate coffee drinkers live longer and may be at lower risk for diabetes. The findings suggest that certain compounds in coffee reduce insulin resistance and inflammation. Still, limit yourself to two cups a day. And finally, maintain a balanced diet. Seems obvious, right? But a new study published in Nutrition Interventions in Diabetes Care and Education found that sticking with a diabetes-friendly diet maintained blood sugar levels in type 2 sufferers almost as well as medication does. Diabetes Canada recommends that half of each mealtime plate be made up of at least two kinds of veggies; the other half should be evenly comprised of whole grains and meat or meat alternatives, such as eggs or tofu.
