TCOYD’s resident nutrition expert Janice Baker has a helpful tip for eating smart and taking control of your diabetes – and your diet!
Don’t drink your calories. Liquid calories from soda, juices and fancy coffee drinks add up quickly and are a significant source of weight gain. Drink water, unsweetened coffee or tea (sweeten yourself if needed), and no or low calorie beverages. Eat whole fruit instead of juice- your body likes the fiber and portion control is much easier!
