The Food Pyramids and diabetes!

Good nutrition for Diabetes involves 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 and Mediterranean food 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.

Below are the ethnic food guide pyramids.

Mediterranean diet pyramid People with diabetes can create a very healthy menu with the Mediterranean Diet Pyramid.  This pyramid is characterized by the relatively low presence of fat. All fats included in the diet are mono-unsaturated or poly-unsaturated fats, such as olive oil. You’ll notice that the Mediterranean pyramid also includes generous portions of fruits, vegetables, beans, grains, nuts, and poultry. Surprising to some, the pyramid recommends at least one glass of wine a day along with a satisfying meal!

Asian diet pyramid – The Asian Diet is said to help reduce the occurrence of many chronic diseases that have become commonplace in Western societies. About 25%-80% of the calories in the Asian diet come directly from rice. You can notice that vegetables play an important role in the Asian diet, but meats are not quite as common.

 

The Latin American Diet Pyramid is characterized by the prevalence of corn, potatoes, and peanuts and dry beans other all other types of food. These foods have been common in the Latin American diet for centuries. In general, the Latin American diet is made of foods that are inexpensive, but tasty and easy to prepare.

Vegetarian diet pyramid – There are several types of Vegetarian diets, diabetic diet foods, including strict Vegan diets (no animal products may be consumed) and lacto-ovo diets, in which vegetarians may consume cheese, eggs, and other dairy products. It is essential that vegetarians carefully balance their nutrition so that they are able to obtain the proper amount of protein to stay healthy. Check here for our low fat dessert recipes.

Like most diabetic diet, physical activity plays a critical role in maintaining good health by burning excess calories. In the past the lack of automation and labor saving farming and manufacturing forced the people to burn excess calories in their daily lifestyle.

Physical activity and exercise with diabetic shoes 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.
