Using the Food Pyramid in Diabetic Diets

In grade school everyone was taught the food pyramid and the different food groups that
make it up. It is recommended for a balanced and healthy diet to vary your diet and
follow the food serving suggestions from the pyramid.

information that can have a negative impact on blood glucose levels.

Some of the differences you will notice are that cheese is placed in the meat group
instead of the dairy group as a protein and the serving size will be equivalent to other
proteins in the same group.

You will find starchy vegetables such as potatoes and corn in
the bread and grains section because they act in a similar manner by raising blood sugars.

diabetic has to monitor the carbohydrate intake at each meal and it has been found that
smaller portion sizes are a good way to manage this.

You can get a copy of the Diabetic Food Pyramid from your dietician, doctor, or diabetes
