About Your Diabetes Diet Menu: Adjusting The Diabetes Diet Plan For Easy Living

This article will be dedicated to all the people in the world that have diabetes.  I am pretty sure it is a very difficult disease to live with because of the constant monitoring of your blood sugar levels.  My father has diabetes.  He has to take a needle in the morning, the minute he wakes up.  I would think that would get a little irritating.  But I guess you have to when your life depends on it.  Further, I hate needles. To think of needles makes me cringe.  I can't believe he takes needles every morning!  He is a real trooper.  I feel for every person that has to do this. Therefore, here is my contribution to all you diabetics.  I will now write about what to include diabetes diet menu.  This will be something like a diabetes diet plan creed. Memorize everything and you will be healthy.

But first, here are a few rules you need to know about your blood sugar level--for those that don't know:

  • It does not matter what type of diabetes you have, type 1 or 2, you should always try to keep your blood sugar level close to 6.0 mmol/L--a no diabetics blood sugar level.  After a meal, your blood sugar should not go any higher than 8.0 mmol/L.  Following these levels will ensure that you will not faint from the lack or overdose of blood sugar.
  • If you can have several meals during the day, it will help you stay within your blood sugar limit--depends on what food you eat.
  • It is in your best interest that your doctor is involved with any of the meals you are trying from any diabetes diet menu.


Here is what to include in your diabetes diet menu (This is for people on the diabetes type 2 diet and type 1 diet, but consult your doctor first before you proceed):

  • Learn to love eating fish, beans, spinach, cucumbers, lettuce and almost every type of vegetable.  They should always be a part of any diabetic meal that you make.
  • Focus on consuming food that have a high source of fiber.  Examples can be bran cereal, apples, and steamed chicken breast.
  • Avoid any type of food that contains hydrogenated oils--except the use of olive oil--and/or trans fats.  These two types of products are one of the main sources for the creation of your diabetes.
  • Try not to consume anything that contains fatty cheese, butter, sour cream, or any other high in fat dairy products. You should really focus on consuming foods that have that magical labels "non-fat" or "low fat".
  • when the blood sugar level gets way too low, drink orange juice.


If you include these suggestions into your diabetes diet menu, you will that your blood sugar should remain pretty stable.  Remember that any diabetes diet plan that you take on should be looked at by a professional.  I hope this information is useful.
