Fad diets may drop weight, but there is almost always a negative side effect. Stick to a balanced diet and exercise to reduce your diabetic potential. Making changes in the way you eat may take time., b But the benefits are well worth it. Here are some steps to help:
1. Start Small. Make one or two changes in your meal plan. Then add another change.
2. Get support. Your meal plan is a healthy way for anyone to eat., s So see if you can get others in your family to join you.
*Helpful Hint: Foods that contain sugar tend to be high in carbohydrates, so the portion size is often quite small.
