How Should I Eat?

  I was recently asked how diabetics should eat.  There are millions of diabetics and tons
  of different needs we have. Here are some tips I think work and that I've followed.
  Sometimes this works better for me than other times.
  - Space meals 4-5 hours
  - Do not skip meals
  - Serve small portions
  The total Carbohydrate count INCLUDES the Sugar count.
  Carbohydrate - 40% of your daily calorie consumption
  Protein - 40% of your total calorie consumption
  Fat - 30% of your total calorie consumption
  The greatest issue I have is quantity. I enjoy eating and want to eat a lot. To combat
  this urge I am always looking for filling snacks that won't through my diet out of wack.
  That's how we came up with Granola Gourmet. These are not the only snacks I eat today, just
  my favorite. Snacking is problematic for me though.  I enjoy fruits especially apples, however
  I rarely see an apple not grown for a giant today.  In keeping with the notion that you should
  have small meals multiple times per day look for apples that are 2" in diameter not 5".  Be
  conscious of your need for moderate portions and start eating smaller meals several times per
  day.  Don't save it up till the end of the day and eat all at once. That's not good for your
  metabolism.  Since Diabetes is a Metabolic disease, these tips are important.  Learn how your
  body responds and eat accordingly.
