Benefits of a Carb-Counting Diet in Type 2 Diabetes


 
Fitness,Health
Most of the time people choose to go on a diet it is decidedly to improve one's presentation to the world. This is especially true in a society where the fashion industry stresses thin body types. True, that often health is also a consideration, as it should be. But then there are times when a diet is required to save one's life. Such is the case with type 2 diabetes. The most prescribed diet for people diagnosed with type 2 diabetes is a low-carb diet. It is not intended to be a weight loss diet in this case. Rather, it is a diet to control blood sugar.

The Carb-Counting Diet at the Beginning

The carb-counting diet assigns food to three main groups: carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. Most doctors want you to see a dietician to learn the ropes. For a diabetic, it is not as easy as it might seem. Your dietician discusses the number of carbs you can have in a day. S/he might also discuss how to divide carbs up into meals and snacks. Your dietician educates you on how to determine the numbers of carbs in foods. I'll give you a head start here. It is as simple as reading food labels.

The biggest benefit of the carb-counting diet is that it does not drop any foods. A diabetic can choose any food to eat as long as they meet their carbohydrate needs. The trick to this is to choose wholesome foods that will fill you up longer. The same amount of carbs that are in a small handful of potato chips are equal to, sat a slice of bread. The bread may be combined with some meat to create a sandwich allowing the bread to do double duty. Of Course, its nice know that if you really want to indulge once in awhile you can.

Another benefit is keeping a consistent amount of carbs in your body. This can help regulate your insulin needs and control your blood sugar. If your body has the same amount of carbs to process at around the same time during the day is good for those blood sugar levels.

Making the Carb-Counting Diet Selection

Because your doctor will likely suggest more than one diet alternative, it is important to weigh them so they suit your current lifestyle.

Should you choose a carb-counting diet it is important to make sure you are doing it correctly. If you don’t you can easily over or under consume carbs. Either way, you may do serious harm to your diabetes program.

Pay close attention to your dietician. X/he can teach you how to properly count carbs and watch your blood sugar levels to make sure the diet is working for you.

As with any new diet, give it time for you to adjust and learn how to plan your meals properly.
