Staying Healthy with Diabetes -- Nutrition & Meal Planning
We are pleased to announce the publication of a book that will tell you everything that is important about nutrition and meal planning for those with diabetes. Written by well-known Joslin nutritionist Amy Campbell and the staff of Joslin Diabetes Center, this book offers guidance and tips on what a meal plan should look like, carb counting, tips for cooking and baking, meal replacements and much more.
Managing your diabetes is all about making choices -- and choosing what foods you will eat is one of the most important. Staying Healthy with Diabetes - Nutrition & Meal Planning will help you understand which of the foods you're currently eating may help keep your blood glucose levels as close to your target range as possible. It will explain which foods you may need to eat more of -- or perhaps less of if they are negatively affecting your body weight, cholesterol or blood glucose levels. You'll also find information on the glycemic index, eating out, alcohol, vitamins, and grocery shopping tips, as well as Joslin's Food Lists -- 32 pages which provide serving sizes (each containing 15 grams of carb) for carbohydrates (breads, cereals, vegetables, cookies, crackers, fruit, favorite breakfast items and deserts); proteins (meats, cheeses, eggs); fats; "free" foods; combination foods; fast foods and vegetarian foods.
