Diabetes is a lifelong, total-body problem. Manage your disorder, and your overall health, effectively with these smart tips.
As you are learning to gain control over your weight and blood sugar, it can be helpful to keep a log that includes some specific information about your eating habits. Every time you eat, jot down where you are; what time it is; how hungry you feel before beginning to eat and again when you stop eating; the foods and amounts eaten; and your thoughts or feelings at the time. Over time, you'll start to see patterns. By identifying the situations in which you're most likely to make poor food choices — something we often do as a response to anxiety or stress — you can learn to substitute new activities.
