If you have diabetes symptoms and have been diagnosed with diabetes, your physician has probably mentioned that you should pay careful attention to your diabetes diet as part of your diabetes treatment program.
Nutrition experts say that there is no one diet for diabetes, but diabetics should follow the nutrition guidelines in the food pyramid, while paying special attention to carbohydrate intake, as a bad diabetes diet does equal diabetes symptoms.
If you have never attempted to eat a healthy, well-balanced diabetic diet before your diabetes diagnosis, it can be difficult to know where to get started. you can get much more information on diabetes diet at:http://www.diabeticsbooks.com
After a diabetes diagnosis, consider seeing a dietitian and developing a diabetes diet plan to get started. Taking into account your medication, your physical activity, your weight and any other conditions you have in addition to diabetes.
The dietitian will help you create a diabetic diet that will prevent complications of diabetes and still give you the pleasure you've always had in eating.
People with diabetes should also eat about the same amount of food at the same time each day to keep blood sugar levels stable.
Keeping your eating and exercise habits on a similar schedule day to day will help keep your blood glucose at healthy levels.

- Eat your meals and snacks at about the same times each day.
- Eat about the same amounts of food each day - donÂt have a large lunch one day and a small one the next.
