Eating With Diabetes PowerPoint and Handout Lesson
When you need to look your very best now...
Learning objectives & benefits:
Since blood sugar control is the primary goal with diabetes management – whether type 1, type 2 or gestational diabetes – some foods are better at stabilizing blood sugar (i.e., slow carbs) and others raise blood sugar more quickly (i.e., fast carbs). The key is balancing your plate with all food groups: carbohydrates, lean proteins, and healthy fats, to keep blood sugar fluctuations at bay. The Eating With Diabetes PPT and Handout Lesson will provide valuable strategies for eating well with diabetes.
Timing Is Everything: Timing your meals is important. Eating too often is not good for you or your blood sugar levels, and going too long without eating is also a recipe for disaster. So, how do you find balance?
- Eat Every 3-4 Hours
- What Happens If You Wait Too Long?
- Symptoms of Hypoglycemia
Meet the Carbohydrate: Carbohydrates are key to blood sugar control - some make it easier, while others make it harder. Once you know what to look for, managing your carbohydrate consumption is pretty straightforward.
- What Are Carbohydrates?
- Slow vs Fast Carbohydrates
Reading a Food Label: It's not always easy to tell a slow carb from a fast carb, especially when it comes to packaged food. Luckily, food labels can shed a lot of light on the situation.
- What Is a Carbohydrate Serving?
- What to Look For
Make a Healthful Plate: Planning out meals and snacks and knowing exactly what you're eating is key to diabetes management.
- Stick to a Schedule
