Living with Diabetes does not have to be difficult. The American Diabetes Association has created the Diabetes Food Pyramid to help people with diabetes better understand the food they can eat. The Diabetes Food Pyramid is different from the typical food pyramid. It groups different foods together and focuses on how certain foods affect blood glucose levels. The good news is that no food is off-limits; it’s just a matter of understanding how much you eat, when you eat it, and what it will do to your blood sugar levels.
