How Much Should I Eat If I Have Diabetes?
eat healthy with diabetesEat a small meal
  • Use teaspoons, salad forks, or child-size utensils to help you take smaller bites and eat less.
  • Make less food look like more by serving your meal on a salad or breakfast plate.
  • Eat slowly. It takes 20 minutes for your stomach to send a signal to your brain that you are full.
  • Listen to music while you eat instead of watching TV (people tend to eat more while watching TV).

    Try filling your plate like this:
    1/4 protein
    1/4 grains
    1/2 vegetables and fruit
    dairy (low-fat or skim milk)
