Portion control

Reducing carbohydrate portions

If you want to lose weight and push your diabetes into remission, but don't feel able to stop eating your usual foods, practice eating smaller portions.

For example, the starch in a plate full of rice breaks down into more than eighteen teaspoons of sugar - cutting down the size of your portions could reduce this to just a few teaspoons

 

If you reduce your carb portion sizes and keep them to less than a quarter of your plate, it'll help you reduce your blood sugar levels.

Filling up on green vegetables and eating sufficient protein and healthy fats will keep you from feeling hungry.
