Advice on Weight Management for Overweight Diabetic Patients

Weight Loss For Diabetics

Please Note: Diabetes - whether Type 1 or Type 2 - is a serious condition which is affected by diet, nutrition, exercise and weight control. It requires regular monitoring and regular contact with your doctor and/or diabetes teacher. This page offers general diet and lifestyle information only. For specific help, please see your doctor and/or consult the Diabetes Help section at the foot of this page.

Diabetes Diet - In a Nutshell

Eat a Well Balanced Diet with a Variety of Food at Each Meal

In general, follow the Food Pyramid Guidelines. Every day, choose foods from these food groups: starches, vegetables, fruit, meat and meat substitutes, and milk and yogurt. How much of each depends on how many calories you need a day.

The key to a healthy diabetic diet for healthy weight maintenance, is BALANCE. Balance your food intake throughout the day, and balance your meals so as to include as many food groups as possible at each meal. In particular, balance your carb-intake throughout the day.

Limit your intake of Fats, Sugars and Alcohol.

Include moderate amounts of low-fat protein. Protein helps to control between-meal hunger.

Eat some starchy carbohydrates at each meal. People might tell you not to eat starches, but that is not correct. Eating starches is healthy for everyone, including people with diabetes. Whenever possible, choose whole wheat or wholegrain carbohydrates: e.g. whole wheat bread.
