Here is a simple show based on our poster and tearpad: Diabetes How to Carb Count it is Easy As 1-2-3.
Participants learn three easy lessons:
How to read a food label to find carbohydrates. How to evaluate if a food product is "heart-healthy by looking at sodium, saturated fat, and trans fat. Does it have fiber? Or added sugar?
What is a carbohydrate serving to manage diabetes? How to figure it out by reading a label? What is the amount of common foods? This point will also illustrate the third point.
- Instead of going crazy memorizing foods and looking them up on unwieldy lists, make a healthy diabetes plate by filling half your plate with non-starchy vegetables, one-quarter healthy protein, and one-quarter whole grain or starchy veg. This will put you in an acceptable "per meal" range of carbohydrates for most people. It is a simple rule of thumb for people on the go!
