    Diabetes Sick Days

    Everyone gets the occasional flu or cold but if you have Diabetes, more attention needs to be given to caring for yourself.  Blood sugar can become elevated when you are sick even if you have not eaten because your body is stressed.  Follow these tips when feeling sick to better control blood sugar...

    Sick Days & Diabetes

    Increasing Fiber

    The American Diabetes Association recommends 25-35 grams of fiber per day.  To increase dietary fiber:

    • choose whole fruits and vegetables over juices,
    • choose whole grain bread over white bread,
    • eat whole grain cereals more often than refined, high sugar cereals,
    • select brown rice over white rice, and
    • choose whole grain pasta over refined flour pasta.

    A diet rich in fiber can help reduce cholesterol levels and promote weight loss.

    Weekly Exercise Tip

    I've been charting my workouts for years and it really motivates.

    A daily exercise journal is a great way to track progress and stay motivated.  Record the date, your body weight, and exercise duration after each workout.  It is incredibly motivating to look back in the journal/log and see how far you have progressed!
