Meal Planning, Food and Diet

advertisement
Question from Fair Haven, Vermont, USA:

Is there any place we can obtain a list of meal suggestions for a week at a time? Are there recipes for diabetic foods showing carbohydrates amounts?

Answer:

From: DTeam Staff

Meal planning nowadays is more individualized and is developed around medications, coexisting health conditions, personal food preferences, etc. I would recommend that you schedule an appointment with a registered dietitian who specializes in diabetes meal planning. He/she can develop an individualized meal plan based on personal food preferences with optimal blood sugar control as a goal. Ask your physician for a referral to an RD if necessary. Label reading skills is part of diabetes education that the RD will do.
