2400 calorie diabetic diet

  • On the other meal plans I kept the meat to be very lean. On this one I let you select from the second level which is lean but still not fat.
  • It doesn't mean you are allowed to exaggerate with the fat meat and the fat milk.
  • Stay away from the cream, the butter, the ice cream, the French fries, the sauces and all the salad dressings!
  • Try to select the skim milk and the low fat cheese.
  • The best meat for you should be the lean meat such as the chicken, the turkey or the fish,
    although you can still enjoy a good t-bone steak from time to time. You deserve it.
  • the best bread for you should be the one which is rich in fibers and made from grains and whole wheat.
  • This diet contains about 275 grams of carbohydrates.
    If you want to reduce the carbohydrates then you can replace 1 serving of bread with meat.
