Never drink whole milk always choose Skim or 1%. A diet high in saturated fat can cause a serious problem for a diabetic. Saturated fats can worsen insulin resistance. Avoid whole milk dairy proucts and eat lower fat versions. Also stay away fruit juice including the 100 percent fruit juices as they have tons of sugar...eat fruit or squeeze your own juice fresh instead.
I know that eating the fruit is better for you but in the summer when it is so hot I like to take fruit juice and freeze it for a healthy snack. Depending on the fruit juice I also add a little water and if I have the fruit as well I'll add a little fruit. This works better for me because if I buy a box of the low calorie fudge bars I have trouble sticking to one.
