Planning for healthy eatingThe thought of a diet can feel overwhelming. However, diet is not solely about eating less of the foods you love or losing weight—it is also about making some simple lifestyle modifications that you can enjoy and maintain. It may surprise you to find that you can still enjoy many of the foods you currently eat.
You should discuss your specific dietary needs with your health care team. Eating a variety of foods from the basic food groups as directed by a health care provider may help manage your diabetes.
Also, remember that you do not have to accept weight gain (a side effect of some diabetes medicines) as part of the process of controlling diabetes. Discuss with your health care team all the things that could be affecting your weight, including your medicine, the foods you eat, and your activity level.Learn more about healthy weight loss here.
