Healthy eating and diabetes management
Healthy eating, along with regular exercise and weight management, can help manage diabetes effectively.
A diet high in vegetables and legumes (such as kidney beans, chickpeas, lentils, low-salt baked beans, and chickpeas) is strongly suggested for diabetics. Wholegrain breads, cereals, and fruits, as well as lean protein sources and reduced-fat dairy products, are all good sources of high-fibre, low-glycemic-index (GI) carbohydrates. Decrease your admission of immersed (undesirable) fat and added sugars, and pick food sources low in salt.
You may also be able to better manage blood glucose levels and keep a healthy weight by reducing the size of your meals. You should see a dietitian so that they can help you develop a healthy eating routine that works best for you.
Diabetes and healthy eating Diabetes patients eat in the same way that everyone else does. You can relax and enjoy healthy eating with the rest of your family because you won’t have to make any separate meals or buy any special foods.
Diabetes and physical activity are important, as is eating a healthy diet. Take part in as many different activities as you can. On most, if not all, days of the week, try to get at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise. Regular exercise for half an hour can help:
Try to get at least 60 minutes of exercise on most days of the week if you want to lose weight. You can break this up into smaller blocks of 10 to 15 minutes spread out throughout the day if 30 to 60 minutes of physical activity seems like too much at first.
Resistance exercise is also highly recommended for everyone, but particularly for diabetics. A safe resistance exercise program can be created with the assistance of an exercise physiologist. Try to participate in resistance-training activities at least twice per week.
