First of all you should talk to your doctore. he/she is the best source for u. but if u want a diabetic diet i will let you know i got this from my doctor.
You have to know how to count carbs have less carb in the morning..
Breakfast 2 slices of whole wheat bread with either boiled egg or fried egg 1tbs peanut butter or 1 oz lean meat or 1/4 cup tuna. tea with lemon.
Lunch 2 clices whohle what bread or 2/3 cup cooked rice 3/4 cup fruit yougurt(no sugar added) 1-2 slices meat or 1 soya burger 1-2 teaspoons of margarine.
Dinner 1 cup cooked noodles or 1 medium potato or 1 medium apple or 1 cup mix fruit. 1 medium chikcen breast or pork chop 1/2 cup tofu. 1-2 teaspoon margarine or salad dressing.
Don’t forget to have your snacks. after each meal slecet any of these snacks
4 melba toast 1 slice cheese or 1/4 cup cottage cheese or 1/2 cup nuts/seeds or 2 digestive cookies. 1 medium apple or orange or 4 social tea biscuits. 1 cup of low fat milk. 1/2 1 meat or cheese sandwich.
P.S have salad with each meal. you can have as much salad and vegetables as you want. so everytime even after your meal u feel hungry have a bowl full of salad. u can only have 1-2teaspoon of salad dressing. I alwayz put lemon with black pepper(there is no limit to lemons) it tasts better than dressing.

    You have to eat foods that are low in carbohydrates which convert to sugar in your body. You also must avoid foods are high in sugar to begin with; some fruits.

    Peas are green and might seem OK, but peas are a high carbohydrate vegetable. Not good. Apple can be high in sugar, also not good.

    Yes you want heathy food, but more times than not you want food prepared from scratch. Any vegetable bread out of the frozen food section at Wal Mart’s or the like is no-no. A nice lean stake if you can afford it is good by its self.

    A simple answer! Carbs are measured in grams. However, 5 grams are generally considered 1 carb count which can be a single small piece of bread. You will begin to read Nutrition Facts on all you buy to eat. Then you will balance your personal carb count with calories needed to keep your body trim.

    You generally try to not consume a more than certain number of carbs per meal. Obtain advice from a dietitian and your doctor to learn what that count is for you. Carbs (carbohydrates) convert to sugar which your body struggles to deal with.

    Best Wishes!
