Diabetes is a major common problem among the people of America. A recent survey conducted by the Harvard School of Public Health claims that about one in three American adults will have diabetes in 2050 if the present trend continues. The epidemic has affected the people from all walks of life.
Experts advise the people to adopt a nutritious diet and a healthy lifestyle to prevent the onset of diabetes. People are advised to take regular meals and snacks and not to skip meals. Too many or too little carbohydrates at one meal can affect blood sugar, so the intake of carbohydrates must be balanced in the diet.
Experts suggest the people to increase the intake of plant foods and cut back on added sugar, sugar drinks, fruit-flavored yogurt, sweet treats and red meat. Healthy fats and fibers must be chosen such as olive and canola oil.
Previous studies have revealed that eating too much proteins, especially animal protein, may be harmful in the long term. So the people must plan a balanced diet for themselves, including fiber-rich carbohydrate, lean protein and healthy fat at each meal.
