Healthy eating is one of the cornerstones of diabetes management, yet many people struggle to improve their relationship with food. Eating should be joyful, not a source of everyday frustration and confusion.
If you’re fighting with food, try this three-step approach:
- Spot the problem. Define what’s causing your fight with food first.
- Get the facts. Use facts from credible sources to decide what needs to be done to solve the problem.
- Seek support. Put the plan into action with support from a dietitian, family and friends.
