Diet plan for your Healthy life as before..

Detailed Answer:
Dear Friend
Welcome to Healthcare Magic

I read your queries and I would say that you can hold pills if you feel good without medication . But you should be aware of your Blood pressure and sugar every 2weeks a month to maintain normal limit by diet or exercises.

You can continue other drugs like vitamins to add nutrition support additional to your diet plan .

Diabetic Diet Plan:

You should know how much calorie your body needs before starting diet plan as excess calorie leads to weight gain and diabetes and if less calorie intake leads to malnourishment .

1800-Calorie Diet with Glucerna


180 g XXXXXXX muesli (60 mL rolled oats, 60 mL low-sugar and low-fat yogurt, 1/4 sliced XXXXXXX 5 mL raisins)


Glucerna nutritional drink (available flavours are vanilla, chocolate, strawberry & wildberry)
8 wheat crackers


1/2 tuna sandwich (45 g tuna, 5 mL reduced fat mayonnaise, 1 slice tomato, 1 lettuce leaf, 1 slice whole-wheat bread)
10 thin twist pretzels
Sugar-free beverage


Glucerna bar (available flavours are chocolate XXXXXXX and lemon crunch)
1 medium XXXXXXX


310 mL paella with seafood
375 mL broccoli with 5 mL margarine
250 mL mixed greens with 15 mL fat-free dressing
Sugar-free beverage


125 mL strawberries
125 mL sugar-free pudding

Hypertension Diet:

The Heart and Stroke Foundation recommends Canadians consume no more than 2,300 mg of sodium (about 1 teaspoon/5 mL of table salt) a day. The amount of salt you eat isn’t just what you shake onto your food – it is already added in large quantities to prepared foods, canned products, snack foods and restaurant meals.

1) Be active 30 to 60 minutes most days of the week.

2) Choose the following more often: vegetables, fruit, low-fat dairy products, foods lower in saturated and trans fat and salt, whole grains and fish, poultry and lean meat.

3)Limit fast foods, canned or prepared foods, as they usually contain higher levels of sodium.

4)If you are overweight, losing about 10 lb (5 kg) will lower your blood pressure. Reducing your weight to within a healthy range for your age and gender will lower your blood pressure even more.

Eat less salt by:
limiting your use of salt in cooking and at the table
avoiding salty foods
choosing fresh or plain frozen food
avoiding canned or prepared foods that are high in salt
using other seasonings such as herbs, spices, lemon juice and garlic during food preparation.

Hope this information is helpful for you.
Wish you a healthy life .
Take Care.
