Type 2 Diabetes Diet
A healthy eating plan is an essential part of any diabetes treatment plan, but there is no one recommended "diabetic diet" for everyone. An individual nutrition plan will depend on many things, including underlying health and level of physical activity, the types of medication(s) being taken, and personal preference. Most people with type 2 diabetes find that having a fairly regular schedule for meals and snacks is helpful. Eating a variety of foods and watching portion sizes is also recommended.
Examples of meal planning tools that some people with type 2 diabetes like to use include
- the plate method,
- carbohydrate counting, or the
- glycemic index.
