For years, experts recommended a low-fat diet, but new research finds that low-carb diets are better at reducing high blood sugar. The American Diabetes Association encourages people to work with a nutrition professional on a personalized diet plan. These tasty foods will enhance any plan. Blueberries, blackberries, strawberries and their richly colored cousins are all high in fiber and brimming with vitamins and antioxidants. They don’t have much in the way of carbs, so they’re low on the glycemic index (GI). Still, they contain a lot of sugar, so limit your serving size. Cheese is a satisfying food. It has practically no carbs, which means it won’t significantly influence blood sugar levels, and because it’s high in protein, a little will go a long way in controlling hunger pangs. If you like to start your day with a steaming cup of coffee, go right ahead. Experts agree that drinking up to three cups a day is fine for people with type 2 diabetes. If you have trouble controlling your blood sugar, try switching from caffeinated to decaf.
