A Diabetic Diet for Vegetarians


If you are a vegetarian who has been diagnosed with diabetes, you can still maintain your diabetic diet.  In some cases, a vegetarian diet may be a healthy way to keep your blood 
glucose levels stable - that is if you are eating lean high-quality proteins and are 
following other rules for eating as a diabetic.

As a lot of vegans and vegetarians eat a larger amount of fruits and vegetables in a day than non-vegetarian and their fiber intake is much higher too.  An increased amount of fiber in a diabetic’s diet can help blood sugars because it slows down the process of the body digesting carbohydrates.  A vegetarian’s diet is usually lower in cholesterol as well 
and it can help ward off cardiovascular disease including heart attacks and strokes.

If you are diabetic and are considering a switch to a diabetic diet some of the benefits you might derive include a higher rate of weight loss and better blood sugar readings.  This is 
dependant on the types of vegetarian meals you choose as some meatless meals can be 
just as fattening as ones that contain meat.

Speak to your doctor and dietician before making the switch.  You will need information on how to transition yourself to your new diet.  You will also get a list of meat alternatives you should eat to get enough protein in a day.  These can include 
tofu, nuts, eggs, and seeds.

As with any change, once your switch to a vegetarian diet gives yourself and your body time to adjust.  There are many recipes and ideas for vegetarian dishes and you will find a 
lot of variety and flexibility in the meals that you prepare.  Check your blood sugars frequently to make sure your blood glucose levels remain stable during the change.
