Bulk Up on Fiber ( Diabetes )
Dietary fiber can help stabilize blood glucose levels and improve your blood cholesterol profile. Easy ways to bulk up your meals:
Mix wheat germ into yogurt or sprinkle it on salads. Two tablespoons contains two grams of fiber.
Incorporate more fiber-rich fruits and veggies into your diet.
Opt for whole-grain breads and cereals instead of the highly-refined versions.
Your registered dietitian can help you with more ideas to bulk up your diet. Keep in mind that high-fiber diet is not recommended for anyone suffering from diabetes-related gastroparesis (nerve damage of the stomach and gastrointestinal tract).
