What is a diabetes meal plan?
A diabetes meal plan, also known as medical nutrition therapy, signifies a diet that contains a variety of nutritious food and regular meal times, according to Mayo Clinic. It is not a strict diet but one that is low in fat and calories, and contains a generous amount of vegetables, fruits and whole grains. It’s regarded as a healthy diet for everyone, including people who don’t have diabetes. For people with type 2 diabetes, a diabetes meal plan is one that assists with weight loss and manages blood glucose levels to keep them within a safe range.
