Diabetes and Nutrition

When managing diabetes, your eating plan is a powerful tool. But figuring out what to eat can feel like a hassle, right? Well, it doesn't have to. There are easy things you can do to add flavor to your daily routine — including healthy twists on your favorite foods.

One key to feeling your best lies in the food you eat. You can start by working with a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN/RD) to make an eating plan that works for you. In it, be sure to include the foods you like — and don’t be afraid to try something new.

Most importantly, remember that eating well — and adding activity to your daily routine by moving more — are important ways you can manage diabetes.
