Plan Your Meals
Make sure you are eating a variety of foods that promote good health and also fit with your diabetes meal plan.
The Create Your Plate is an easy way for people with diabetes to start meal planning. It can help with both weight loss and blood glucose control.
The main idea of this meal planning method is portion control and increased consumption of non-starchy vegetables. It also acts as a guide to meal planning with less starchy foods and meats. The best part is that it is simple and easy to use.

Counting calories and carbohydrates is another way to meal plan for diabetes control and weight loss. You may also be interested in our book, The Diabetes Carbohydrate and Fat Gram Guide.
