Diabetics have to undergo vast lifestyle changes when they are first diagnosed. There then becomes so many things that they cannot eat. Items that are full of sugar soon become off limits and can depress the diabetic. A type 2 sample diet can consist of some of the more bland foods in the world but can be spiced up with some help.
A average (or at least by the American diabetes association) breakfast for a diabetic should be a ½ cup of skim milk, a ½ a banana, 1 slice of toast, and ½ cup of oatmeal, meaning that the recommended breakfast meal is quite boring and is totally different from average meals.
A type 2 diabetes sample diet in the afternoon consists of four ounces of chicken (that has been broiled), ½ cup of carrots, and 2/3 cup of brown rice, 1 whole grain dinner roll, and 4 unsweetened apricot slices. At the most a type sample diet should contain 1600 calories and 220 grams of carbohydrates. The best way to determine a usable diet is to create type 2 diabetes meal plans and to then consult with your doctor.
Your doctor may make suggestions or even add in detail. Such as portion amounts (very important), when is the best times to eat, and how to prepare your food to best suite the diabetes. Also a quick look online or in your local bookstore can give you type 2 diet recipes that can be used to spice up your life. Also if (because it is only type 2) you have a higher exercise level your doctor may prescribe changes in your portion sizes and best times to eat, allowing much more leave way. So talk to your doctor about your type 2 diabetes sample diet and see if it’s right for you.
