Suggested diets

With either diabetic or hypoglycemic diets:

For breakfast, a bowl of yogurt, some cheese, or nuts are better choices than high carbohydrate, high glycemic foods like sweetened cereals of pancakes.

A full salad with some proteins (chicken breast or cheese) in it is a better choice for lunch than a sandwich or hamburger with fries.

For dinner, meat, fish or poultry with a whole grain and a low-carb vegetable is a much better choice than pasta or pizza.

For snacks, combine a fruit like a small apple with nuts or cheese for balance. Unsweetened yogurt is also a good choice. If the yogurt is mixed with fruit, the fruit should be fresh rather than in the form of sugary preserves. The best strategy is to mix the yogurt and fruit yourself instead of purchasing the yogurt with fruit already added.
