Diabetes & Diet: 7 Foods That Control Blood Sugar

When you have type 2 diabetes, what you eat can help you control your blood sugar, stave off hunger, and feel full longer. “Diabetes is when your blood sugar or glucose levels are higher than normal. It’s carbohydrate foods like breads, cereals, rice, pasta, fruits, milk, and desserts that can cause this rise," says Maggie Powers, PhD, president-elect of Health Care & Education at the American Diabetes Association. Your eating plan should focus on the amount and type of carbs you put on your plate throughout the day, Powers says. But it’s also important to have foods you enjoy. You want to eat enough so you feel satisfied and avoid overeating and poor choices.

    I've read this forum for over a year now but have never posted. I am classified as pre-diabetic (if there truly is such a category). Anyway, I'm here and have been learning.
    I think I got the idea from this site, but there are asian noodles called Miracle Noodles that have little to no carbs. I ordered some but haven't gotten them yet. I'll let you know how they are. I hope I'm pleasantly surprised. :)
    I also found that Birds Eye sells a very large bag of Thai frozen vegetables that comes with a flavor packet that can be added to the veggies. The carb count, even with the sauce, really doesn't seem to be bad at all and it has really a good Thai flavoring. I'm hoping the Miracle Noodles will be good with it.
    Other than that, I too have deprived myself of these types of foods in restaurants because of not knowing anything about the carbs involved.
