Thus, diabetic diet should include regular foods, and a balance diet consists from nutritious foods without to leave delicious foods.
For most people, suffer diabetes means to change eat pattern from various balance foods and to change regular eating schedule. If for all this time, you already have good eating schedule and healthy diet plans, you don’t need to change them to keep having normal blood sugar level.
To have diabetic diet, suggested foods should be rich fiber foods such as vegetables and fresh fruits. As variations, you still can eat your favorite foods and you can also try some foods that you never eat before. The most important thing is that you shouldn’t reduce the calorie intake because it will cause a very low blood sugar level (hypoglycemia), and also don’t eat too many foods that can make your diabetes worse.
