The diabetes diet for Indians includes carbohydrates, proteins and fats with ratio 60:20:20. As always, a balanced and planned diet can build and improve personal health. Diabetes is on rise today, yet most cases are preventable without medication just with balanced and planned diet accompanied with simple morning walk. Per day calorie consumption for diabetics should be between 1500-1800. Large meals give rise to higher blood sugar, therefore it is recommended to have small frequent meals to prevent both hyper & hypo glycemic shocks. Tips:
# Try whole grains- oats,channa atta, millets, pasta,upma,poha, etc with vegetables. Two serving of milk without sugar is good option. Vegetables high in fiber should be included. Healthy options- peas, beans,spinach,broccoli, other greens & leafy vegetables. Pulses with husk and sprouts are healthy options. Fat- Omega-3 and MUFA are good for body. Fruits- at least two servings a day recommended. Fruits such as- apple,papaya,orange,pear,guavas should be consumed. Mangoes, bananas, grapes should be avoided due to their high sugar content. In between snacks such as rawa dhokla, fibre cookies, buttermilk. Non veg- chicken and seafood can be included, avoid red meat and egg yolk. I can help you with planned diabetic chart.
