Our recipes for diabetics are designed for you to take pleasure in eating while ensuring optimal control of blood sugar, blood pressure and blood lipids (cholesterol and triglycerides). If you have type 2 diabetes, a healthy diet will bring real health benefits. Our recipes will help you achieve and maintain a healthy weight. They are based on the Mediterranean diet and are satiating so you will not have hunger pangs. Best of all, even non-diabetic family members will love them, too.
If you are overweight, even moderate weight loss can improve your health. Adopt a regular schedule for eating meals and, if necessary, take snacks. Drink enough, 1 to 2 liters of liquid distributed throughout the whole day. It is important to be physically active, because physical activity lowers blood sugar, improves the effectiveness of insulin produced by the body and helps to reduce any excess weight. Avoid sugary drinks (dessert wines, "cocktails" and liqueurs), because they contain lots of sugar and can cause a rapid rise in blood sugar.
