Diabetic Diet Sheet

This diabetic diet sheet will give you some guidelines on the different calorie specific diabetes diets that are available. If you have been advised to go onto a calorie controlled diabetic diet by your health professional, then read on for more information.

Eating healthy as a diabetic follows pretty much the same guidelines as for non-diabetics, especially if weight loss is involved. For many Type 2 diabetics a calorie controlled diet will be advised with the aim to lose excess weight.

For most of us, controlling calories simply means keeping a closer eye on our portion sizes and cutting back on those foods that carry ‘empty calories’, yes that’s all those sugary foods that look good but do nothing to supply your body with its daily nutritional needs.

Creating a Diabetes Care Plan

Usually a diabetes care plan and diabetic diet sheet will be mapped out with your diabetes professional to work in with when you need to take medication, when to check your blood sugar levels, and what foods to fit into your daily routine.

People on different diabetes medications will have different levels of flexibility and your health care provider is there to assist you with managing this.

There will also be different levels of exercise recommended, depending on your general health and how much weight you are trying to lose.

Food is usually divided into three meals plus three snacks which is important for diabetics as meals need to be evenly spaced throughout the day to keep blood glucose levels within normal ranges.

If you are trying to lose weight and are restricting your portion sizes the specific number of calories will depend on the following..

Whether you are a:

  • Man or woman
  • Small, average or large height
  • Have a physically active lifestyle, or exercise a lot
  • If you are pregnant

Diets range between 1000, 1200, 1500, 1800 and 2000 calories per day depending on the above. Your healthcare professional will provide you with the correct diet for your specific needs.
