Two Healthy Diet Changes

Saturday, August 17, 2019

Okay, so this prompt is day four of the Diabetes challenge. This took some extra thinking. Because I am not sure how to change my mindset yet from the way it is programmed now in food choices. But the first change I am looking to make is to increase my fiber intake. It is something that is usually on the lower end of my nutritional values. My other change will be looking more at labels. This is for two-fold. One that I am reducing my fat intake and two that I am more mindful of portion control. I am not a huge measurer. I like eyeballing things because I always seem to dirty up every dish in the kitchen, which means more for me to wash. I dislike washing dishes. These are the two changes that I can monitor by the food tracker. Now off to my Saturday chores in the rain.

    Fiber is key. It helps me feel full, aids in my digestion, and helps me maintain a healthy blood sugar level.

    Good For You- aiming for a Positive Change! My Diabetes numbers are off the charts. After 30 years of tight control, A1c's at 6.0 & under - last year my FBG # doubled! Called my Dr & my Endocrinologist, blamed Rx Prednisone for an allergic reaction

    Glad you have joined the Diabetes Challenge. I changed medical providers with hopes of changing my current diabetic status. It could be more of the same. Have another appointment next week to see what the new treatment elements will be. Good luck to you
