How to Eat What You Love
Diabetes shouldn’t equal deprivation. Moderation is key, and following a few tips can avoid bad habits that leave you with feelings of guilt. From pizza to potatoes, we give you options to enjoy the foods you crave

 

Favor Whole, Fresh Foods
Processing foods tends to concentrate the calories and carbohydrate. Consider this: For 15 grams of carb, you could eat either 4 fresh apricots or just 1/2 cup apricots canned in juice. And for 15 grams of carb, you could eat either 1-1/4 cups strawberries or a mere 1-1/2 tablespoons all-fruit strawberry preserves…..

 

 

Train Your Eyes
A typical 12-ounce baked potato at restaurants has 70 grams of carb, whereas 3 ounces (about 1/2 cup) of boiled red-skin potatoes has just 17 grams of carb. Weigh or measure spuds, rice, and other foods at home so you’ll be able to more accurately size up portions when eating out…..
