HOW TO BE AN EFFECTIVE FOOD SHOPPER WHEN YOU HAVE DIABETES:nfb.org:"Imagine eating a milk chocolate-coated, caramel nougat candy bar that has only 3 grams of fat, 21 grams of total carbohydrate and 90 calories per bar—and you're still following your diabetic meal plan. Now, the dream can become a reality. How? By understanding the 1995 "Exchange List" diabetes guidelines and these practical suggestions, you can easily convert recipe and food label information into exchanges, and enjoy your favorite foods, while adhering to your meal plan. Healthy meals include foods that contain carbohydrate, protein, and fat. For people with diabetes, carbohydrate is the most important nutrient to consider in making food choices. If you know how many grams of carbohydrate you are eating, then you'll know where your blood glucose level is headed. This is why planning meals and snacks is so important. Whether you have type 1 or type 2 diabetes, you will work on eating the same amount of carbohydrate, at the same meal, each day. You focus on the types of food (carbohydrate, protein, and fat), the size of portions, and how often you eat during the day."

Fitting alcohol into your meal plan:Joslin diabetes center:"The use of alcohol should be discussed with your physician and health care team. As a general guideline, for persons using insulin, two alcoholic beverages may be used in addition to their regular meal plan. No food should be omitted in exchange for an alcoholic drink. For persons who are not on insulin and are watching their weight, alcohol is best substituted for fat choices and in some cases extra bread/starch choices. Some alcoholic beverages contain higher amounts of sugar and carbohydrate -- these include sweet wines, sweet vermouth and wine coolers. Use these sparingly as they may increase your blood sugar levels too much. Additional guidelines for the use of alcohol are printed below"

Meal Planning for A Diabetic:foot.com:"In addition to the types of foods you eat, try to keep close tabs on the schedule for your meals. You might be eating later than your regular mealtime. Eating later than usual is fine as long as you manage the situation and don't let your blood glucose get too low. If you take a diabetes medication, here are some suggestions from the American Diabetes Foundation that you might consider. But before implementing any plan, talk with your physician to make certain it fits your specific needs. If you delay your meal about an hour, you can consider"

WHAT IS NEW IN DIABETIC MEAL PLANNING?:FAMILY GENTLE DENTAL CARE:"There's no one diet for diabetes. General guidelines exist, such as "eat less fat and saturated fat" and "eat more whole grains, fruits, and vegetables." Your diabetes meal plan must be based on your individual needs and developed with expert assistance from a registered dietitian. Also, use the Nutrition Facts information on food labels to help you choose healthful foods. Eat more starches, such as bread, cereal, and starchy vegetables--6 servings a day or more. Start the day with cold (dry) cereal with nonfat/skim milk or a bagel with one teaspoon of jelly/jam. Put starch center stage--pasta with tomato sauce, baked potato with chili, rice and stir-fried beef and vegetables. Add cooked black beans, corn, or garbanzo beans (chickpeas) to salads or casseroles"

Meal planning for diabetes management:vitalco.net:"There have been many changes in diabetic meal plans over the years. It was previously thought that people with diabetes should avoid all simple sugars. More current research shows that people should actually focus on the total amount of carbohydrate eaten at a given time rather than simple sugars. This is due to the fact that all of the carbohydrate that is eaten is converted to blood sugar. Carbohydrates are found in starchy foods such as breads, pastas, and cereals. They are also found in fruits, milk, yogurt and desserts. When we eat carbohydrate, 100% of it is converted to blood sugar in anywhere from 15 minutes to 1½ hours."

Interesting idea to planning your meals:platemethod.com:"The Idaho Plate Method is intended as a starting point for diabetes meal planning. It works well for weight loss and in improving blood glucose and lipids. The plate shown below illustrates examples of foods and how much space different foods should occupy on a 9 inch plate A Plate Model for meal planning was first described in 1970 in the Swedish magazine "Var Naring" ("Our Nourishment"). In the early 1980's, Swedish nutritionists Margit Eliasson, Brita Karlstrom, and Birgitta Melin; and Bengt Vessby, MD, wrote Mat Vid Diabetes och Hjartkarlssjukdom: Bra Mat for Alla. (Food for People with Diabetes and Heart Disease: Good Food for Everyone), a patient booklet to help clients more easily select healthful meals with acceptable food proportions, without measuring"

Meal Planning:Methodist health care system:"According to the food pyramid, daily intake of food should include the following*: 6 - 11 servings of starchy vegetables, grains, and beans 3 - 5 servings of vegetables 2 - 4 servings of fruits 2 - 3 servings of milk and yogurt 2 - 3 servings of protein foods small amounts of fats and oils small amounts of sugary foods *The number of servings from each food grouping may differ for a person with diabetes, based on his/her recommended treatment plan, diabetic goals, calorie intake, and lifestyle. Always consult your physician or a registered dietitian (RD) for dietary recommendations."

Diabetic-Lifestyle What's for Dinner?:diabetic-lifestyle:"Diabetic-Lifestyle What's for Dinner? brings meals for the diabetic back to the family dining table with quick recipes for meals that everyone will enjoy.

Achieve a balanced diabetic diet:diabetic-diet-and-recipes.com:"Planning ahead is a good way to ensure that nutritional needs are met through a balanced diabetic diet. A nutritionist or dietician can design a meal plan that helps you control your diabetes and fits into your lifestyle. Ideally, each meal fills a portion of your nutritional requirements and over the course of an entire day you will eat a balanced diet.Plan Ahead Look at your meal plan, check nutritional values, and determine how many servings you have to cover in each of the categories. Be sure to remember that in any meal plan a serving is an exact, specified amount and may not be the same as what you would traditionally serve yourself. Once you have a good feel for the foods incorporated into your plan and their nutritional values, you'll be ready to make your shopping list."
