Looking for a fun and informative guide to managing diabetes? Look no further than the updated and redesigned booklet from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics! With expanded food lists, eating and physical activity tips, and a customizable eating plan, this resource has been the standard for diabetes education and meal planning for nearly 70 years.
What sets this guide apart from other diabetes resources is its emphasis on the choices approach to meal planning. Rather than dictating strict meal plans and portion sizes, the choices approach encourages individuals with diabetes to make small, gradual changes to their eating habits in order to meet their nutritional needs and manage their blood sugar levels.
In addition to the choices approach, this guide features updated carbohydrate, protein, and fat information for a wide variety of foods and beverages, reflecting the diverse populations living with diabetes. There are also plenty of helpful tips and tricks for making healthy eating and physical activity a part of your daily routine, from setting realistic goals to tracking your progress.
One of the best things about this updated edition is the inclusion of more food images. With colorful photos of fruits, vegetables, grains, and proteins, it’s easier than ever to get inspired to try new foods and eat a balanced diet.
Another new addition to this guide is a section on Snacks and Extras. This chapter includes tips for making healthy snacking choices, as well as suggestions for incorporating occasional indulgences into your eating plan without throwing off your blood sugar levels.
Throughout the guide, there are action-oriented eating plan tips that encourage readers to take small steps towards healthier habits. Whether that means swapping out sugary drinks for water or adding an extra serving of vegetables to your meals, these tips make it easy to stay on track and make progress towards your health goals.
Of course, no diet or health guide would be complete without space for notes and customization. That’s why this guide includes dedicated pages for jotting down meal ideas, tracking your blood sugar levels, and setting goals. With the customizable eating plan, readers can tailor their meal plan to their specific nutritional needs and preferences.
Overall, this updated and redesigned booklet from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics is an invaluable resource for anyone looking to manage their diabetes through healthy eating and physical activity. With its emphasis on the choices approach, colorful food images, and action-oriented tips, it’s both informative and fun to read. So why wait?
