One of the first reactions most people have after being diagnosed with diabetes is shock. Anger usually follows, and finally, resistance.
Many diabetics have trouble adjusting to new eating habits simply because it can be much too hard. Sometimes, individuals just don't like the idea of eating “diabetes foods" and refuse to change their eating habits.
This type of outlook can be extremely harmful for someone with diabetes.
When it comes to diabetes, you can't make up your own rules when it comes to your diet. This condition requires that you monitor your meals, and that you learn how to handle the changes in your blood sugar level.
Anger is an understandable reaction, but you can't let it interfere with your health. One of the easiest ways to adjust to life with diabetes is to realize that diabetes foods are not any different from normal foods. Diabetic-safe foods are simply foods that are consumed in moderation and are low in sugar.
If you have diabetes and don’t take steps to monitor what you eat, you could be headed for serious medical trouble. Your blood sugar levels will be unregulated, making you more prone to illness, and in danger of having a stroke or heart attack.
If you have been diagnosed with diabetes, it is in your best interest to realize that you can live a healthy life and still enjoy food. Your diet may need to change, but there is no reason that the foods you eat have to be boring and bland. Instead, think of diabetes foods as regular foods, just moderated, or served in a different way. This will still help you enjoy the foods you love, without thinking that your diet is abnormal, because it isn't.
