Because people with diabetes are at higher risk for heart problems, it's often recommended that they limit fat below 30 percent of total daily calories by eating less overall fat and less saturated fat. They also need to watch cholesterol, choose smaller portions of lean meats, poultry and fish, and low or non-fat dairy products. Because high-protein diets such as the Atkins diets are high in fat, they are not usually recommended for people with diabetes.
Remember that it will take a while to learn how to adjust to the changes in your diet and lifestyle after a diabetes diagnosis. With practice and help, you can have a satisfying diet and keep your blood sugar under control, too.
Thanks so very much for all your assistance and for the excellence of the programs and information available through your company. With that help I have been able to control my diet so I no longer, at least for now, have to take oral Diabetes medication. I've also lost twenty pounds nice and slowly while I learned to eat by making better choices. Thanks for helping me to learn to do so. Thanks a LOT!!!,Jim, Albuquerque
