Health Tip: Diabetics, Eat Healthy

August 9, 2005-- Posted at 2:35 PM CDT

(HealthDayNews) -- If you have diabetes, healthy eating should be an integral part of managing your disease. A good diet can help control your weight and blood sugar level.

The Methodist Health Care System in Houston offers these suggestions:

  • Use vegetable spray instead of oil, shortening, or butter.
  • Steam vegetables using a low-fat broth or water.
  • Season foods with herbs and spices, vinegar, lemon juice, or salsa.
  • Use low or sugar-free jams instead of butter or margarine.
  • Use low-fat or fat-free cottage cheese, or nonfat yoghurt.
  • Eat chicken or turkey without the skin.
  • Buy only lean meats and broil, roast, stir-fry or grill them.
  • Use canola or olive oil rather than vegetable oils.
  • Buy whole-grain breads and cereals.
