DIET FOR DIABETES


The goal of a diabetic diet is to avoid any surges in the blood glucose levels at any time of the day.
For people with diabetes, healthy eating is not simply a matter of "what one eats", but also when one eats. This can be easily accomplished by following a "three meals and three small snacks" pattern.
 Following a diabetic diet chart along with portion control, avoiding foods that cause the sugar levels to soar (e.g. sugars, sweets) and choosing foods high in fiber are also the key to maintaining a near normal level of blood sugar throughout the day. The diet for diabetics should also be rich in fiber which helps by slowing down or reducing the absorption/release of glucose into the blood stream. Diabetics are also more prone to developing heart diseases, so a diet low in total fat will help to prevent heart diseases in the near future.
 

Exercise also improves the body's ability to use the insulin and incorporating a suitable exercise regimen  on a daily basis can help in controlling the blood sugar.
Based on your weight and level of activity the calories and appropriate proportions of nutrients  you need to take per day is calculated. your caloric intake is also adjusted to your weight loss goals.

BEHAVIORAL PROGRAM :
Stimulus control —
Stimulus control is considered a key element in a behavioral program . It focuses on gaining control over the environmental factors that activate eating and eliminating or modifying the environmental factors that facilitate over-eating. Since food is a key issue in weight gain, participants are taught to buy more fresh fruits and vegetables, to prepare easy-to-eat lower calorie foods, and to place them prominently in the refrigerator or on the counter.
The proximity of food and the shape and size of serving containers may influence how much is eaten . Stimulus control also includes making the act of eating a focus of its own. Thus, turning off the television set and putting down reading materials may allow the individual to concentrate on eating.
Slowing down the rate of eating —
Since eating is central to ingesting food, slowing down the process may give "physiological" signals for fullness time to come into play. Two ways to slow down eating include concentrating on the tastes of the food and savoring what is being eaten. Other techniques might involve leaving the table briefly during a meal and drinking water between bites.

Good examples of diet charts you can follow in the corresponding diet chart articles based on your daily calorie requirement.
