Diabetes FriendlyMeal Plan

Welcome to my Diabetes-Friendly Meal PlanThank you for downloading my Diabetes-Friendly Meal Plan, I hope youenjoy it.The plan is based on recipes I make and enjoy myself.I have lived with type 1 diabetes since 1997 and spent a lot of time findingwhat works for me and the diabetes coaching clients I work with. This hasgiven me the insights to develop heathy meal plans that are easy, tasty,and won’t case havoc on your blood sugars (assuming you take your medsof course).We all have different approaches to food and what we like to eat, so don’tsee this plan as a final truth, but rather as an inspiration to develop goodnutrition habits, regardless of your fitness and health goals.For more healthy recipes and meal plans, check out my recipe index andmeal plan archive on Diabetes Strong.- Christel

How the Plan WorksI prefer to eat six smaller meals throughout the day rather than the classicthree big meals of breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Eating smaller meals allowsme to spread out my carbs between the meals, making blood sugar controleasier. I also rarely feel hungry between meals because I eat every 3-4hours.Each meal has less than 30 grams of carbs, a good amount of protein, andsome healthy fat. Because the meals are very similar in size andmacronutrients, you can really eat them in the order you like. If you preferchicken for breakfast and pancakes for dinner, I won’t hold you back (but Imay give you a strange look )If eating six daily meals doesn’t work for you because of your schedule(work, family, etc.), please don’t stress about it. You can just combine someof the meals and have four meals instead. It’s better to have a routine thatworks than trying to force yourself to eat six daily meals.A note about veggies: The recipes include everything I eat except the leafyand fibrous veggies (salad, broccoli, etc.). I don’t count those in my dailycalories and you can eat as many as you like. Filling up on salad (without ahigh-calorie dressing) is a great way to add more “food volume” and makesure you don’t feel hungry between meals.

How to Adjust the Plan to Your Calorie NeedWe all have different calorie needs. Your daily calorie need depends onyour size, fitness level, daily activity, gender, etc. When you are creating ahealthy meal plan, your first step should therefore always be to calculateyour “calorie equilibrium”, or how many calories you need each day tomaintain your current weight.You can learn exactly how to find you calorie equilibrium with 5 easy stepsin this post: calorieneed/Once you know your calorie equilibrium, you can adjust your daily caloriesup or down to meet your goals. If your goal is to lose weight, I recommendthat you eat 300- 500 calories less than your equilibrium each day (but noless than 1,200 per day). This should lead to a steady and healthy weightloss.If you want to gain muscle, start out by adding in 300-500 calories morethan your equilibrium each day and see what happens. If you find that youare also putting on a little too much fat, decrease your calories slightly.The recipes in the document list amounts for a 1,600 calorie diet, but youcan use the tables on the next two pages to easily convert the plan intodifferent calorie levels (and metric measurements).Disclaimer: I know that healthy nutrition (and especially how many carbsto eat) is a topic that causes a great deal of discussion in the diabetescommunity. I make no claim that my approach is the best or only way to doit, but it’s what works for me and the clients I work with. If you are doingsomething different that works for you, then definitely keep doing it!I am not a medical professional! Please discuss any dietchanges with your medical team.
