Food Portion Plate, A healthy diet plan for Diabetic patients
One strategy is to eat healthy portions.
This is your basic 9 inch dinner plate.
draw an imaginary line down the middle of the plate.
And then divide one side in half
Largest section is filled with non-starchy vegetables
Carrots, Salads, Broccoli, cabbage, green beans are a few examples.
Fill one quarter with whole grain or starchy foods like rice, corn, potatoes, bread, noodles
Fill the other quarter with lean proteins such fish, chicken, lean beef, tofu, or cooked dried beans.
Lean proteins mean meat with low fat content.
As the dessert you can eat a small amount of fresh fruit.
You can also have three portions of milk per day. But make sure to use skimmed milk or 1% milk.
The next strategy is to use the interactive web service American Diabetes Association provides. You can create your own plate with it. The link is mentioned in the description.
Working with your doctor or dietitian is also highly recommended to create individualized diet plans for you.
