Watching what you eat when you have type 2 diabetes is vital and understanding serving sizes and portions is just as important. It’s especially important to pay attention to the amount of protein, carbs and fiber. Protein can help make you feel more full and may also help improve blood sugar control.
There are a few ways to help control portion size for people with type 2 diabetes, from counting carbs and using the plate method to measuring out portions with your hand.
Eating well, controlling portion sizes and exercising can help in weight loss and maintenance as well as helping to manage type 2 diabetes.
