Diet-to-Go now offers five weeks worth of super delicious meals that are a perfect fit for people suffering from diabetes. It's our popular Diabetes-friendly Traditional line of meals that were crafted to fit within the guidelines set forth by the American Diabetes Association.
Here's what Diet-to-Go's registered dietitian Rebecca Mohning MS, RD, LD has to say.
"Diet-to-Go meal plans are beneficial for customers trying to lose weight AND control their blood glucose levels. The meals are portion controlled so there is no need to worry about carbohydrate counting and keeping track of calories for weight loss.
"The meals offer a diet low in fat which is very important for diabetics since they have an increased risk for heart disease."
Now that's what we call news that's easy to swallow!
Chances are you or someone you know is either diabetic or pre-diabetic.
Here are the most recent stats from www.diabetes.org:
Total: 23.6 million children and adults in the United States-- 7.8% of the population -- have diabetes.
Diagnosed: 17.9 million people
Undiagnosed: 5.7 million people
Pre-diabetes: 57 million people
New Cases: 1.6 million new cases of diabetes are diagnosed in people aged 20 years and older each year.
Scary numbers indeed. But there are so many ways to fight back. A healthy, balanced diet is perhaps the best way to keep your sugar in check or to prevent the energy swings prevalent among diabetics.
The American Diabetes Association says, "Meal planning for diabetes is more than just cutting back on starch or sugar. There are many options that people with diabetes use to help them plan their meals. Having diabetes doesn't have to mean eating the same foods day after day."
And that's where Diet-to-Go can help. Our perfectly portioned meals remove the guesswork and maintain the pleasure of dining on great-tasting real food.
By using a plan like Diet-to-Go, you get to try new foods where the portions are controlled so you can keep better track of your calories for weight loss and track your carbohydrate intake to better regulate your blood sugar.
We know that carbohydrate-containing foods raise blood glucose levels. By keeping track of how many carbohydrates you eat and setting a limit for your maximum amount to eat, you can get the help you need to keep your blood glucose levels on track. Diet-to-Go is here to help make that easy for you.
