Putting it all together - Creating a plan. In order to keep your blood glucose level within a normal range, it is important to look for a combination of eating methods that work for you.

  • Count your carbohydrates intake. This is because carbohydrates break into glucose, thus they have the highest amount of impact on your blood glucose level. Make sure you go for healthy options of carbs and the timing and amount of carbs you consume, is well within your restricted amount. Talk to your dietitian when it comes to counting the carbs in your diet, by paying special attention to serving size and carbohydrate content.
  • Adapt to the ‘exchange system’ in eating food. This system is used by many dietitians and nutritionists who recommend exchanging a few calories every now and them to keep the taste buds happy. It basically talks about eating the same amount of protein, calories and fats in your diet on a daily basis – in order to keep your blood glucose level intact. For instance, you could trade eating an apple for eating 1/3rd cup of whole-wheat pasta.
