The Food Pyramids
Good nutrition for Diabetes involve maintaining a well-balanced
Diabetic diet plan that includes whole grains, protein, dairy, vegetables,
fruit and some unsaturated fats.
Americans are accustomed to seeing the traditional Food and Drug Administration
pyramid on every cereal box and FDA-approved publication. While the American food
guide pyramid is by all means healthy and comprehensive, we thought it would be
fun to share food guide pyramids reflecting the histories of many other ethnic beginnings,
cultures and beliefs.
The importance of nutrition for Diabetics
requires that we find all sorts of ways to help you create a useful Diabetes food
pyramid. To meet that goal will keep working to bring missing pyramids to you. As
an option, pick one and adopt it as your own. Eating in the ways of our traditions
cannot be a bad thing.

were, so daily exercise is a must.
Physical activity and exercise is the key to making good diabetes nutrition work.
We have to burn excess sugar and fat that we eat. If we choose the traditional approach
to eating, it is important to note that we are choosing a way of life, not just
the foods that we grew up with and love.
