Eat more frequently
Shift away from three big meals a day and to five or six smaller meals and healthy snacks. Studies indicate that staggering your food throughout the day not only helps to stabilize blood sugar but also may lower cholesterol levels. Of course, your body is unique, and the nature of your diabetes will affect the frequency with which you should eat. Work with a dietitian to come up with a good plan for dividing your meals up throughout the day.
