Diabetes diet

Diabetes is a medical condition where the body has difficulty handling blood sugar.

The American Diabetes Association (ADA) encourages those with diabetes to limit sugar sources such as sweets and refined starches. It also recommends eating less trans and saturated fats like fatty meat and full fat dairy since these contribute to heart disease.

The ADA diet doesn’t strictly prohibit any single food. Instead, it recommends limiting quantities of unhealthy foods.
