Eating the right foods is essential to losing weight and reducing blood sugar levels.
Some people are of the notion that one has to drastically change his or her eating habits, including going for bland and tasteless foods in this case, but that shouldn't be that way at all.
Yes, you may have to limit some sweet treats but you can still make wise food choices and make every meal time enjoyable.
Meats are very important as these provide essential proteins that your body requires.
You must have a serving of beef, chicken, fish or pork in every meal.
Vegetables especially the green ones are highly recommended, too, and you can eat these in abundance.
Spinach, pepper, tomatoes as well as anything and everything that is green are good for you.
Fruits, especially the fresh ones, are also good, but you can't have too many of them in a day.
Fruits contain sugars, too, which may aggravate your condition.
Avoid fruit juices and concentrates.
You also need natural fat in your daily diet.
A lot of issues about fat are exaggerated.
Your body does need fat in the natural form.
Dairy products, except cheese, may be kept at a minimum.
Rice is loaded with sugar and can cause sugar spikes if you have Type 2 Diabetes.
Whole grains are fine, but not the other types, least of all rice and corn.
You can eat bread from time to time but don't do it on a daily basis and certainly you can't eat a whole loaf of bread in one sitting! Sweet treats and pastries must be avoided whenever possible, although of course you can have a bite or two of your favorite dessert special once in a while.
Just don't gobble up a gallon of ice cream in one day.
