If you've just learned that you have diabetes or pre-diabetes, you probably have a lot of questions about what you can and can't eat. Do you wonder if you can ever have your favorite food again? What happens when you are eating at a restaurant or a friend's house? Do you have to change your entire diet just because you have diabetes? The answer is NO.
There is nothing that you can't eat. You don't have to give up your favorite foods or stop eating at restaurants.
But, it is important to know how your food choices affect your blood sugar. Learning to eat regular meals, in a healthy portion for you, can help you manage your diabetes better and prevent other health problems.
True or False?
I have to stop eating my favorite foods because I have diabetes or I am at risk for developing diabetes.
