What's the best way for a diabetic to lose or maintain weight?

Typically, it is recommended that people with diabetes eat balanced meals and snacks. This helps control blood sugar levels by slowing the release of sugar into the bloodstream. When meals and snacks are balanced, those with diabetes can enjoy a wider variety of foods. However, they still must keep portion control in mind. It's wise to consult with a doctor, registered dietitian or a certified diabetes educator about the best eating plan for them.
