How to Manage Diabetes with Diet and Exercise

Use your diabetes meal plan. If you do not have one, ask your health care team for one.

Eat healthy foods such as fruits and vegetables, fish, lean meats, chicken or turkey without the skin, dry peas or beans, whole grains, and low-fat or skim milk and cheese.

Keep fish and lean meat and poultry portions to about 3 ounces (or the size of a deck of cards). Bake, broil, or grill it.

Eat foods that have less fat and salt.

Eat foods with more fiber such as whole-grain cereals, breads, crackers, rice, or pasta.
