DEAR SIR/MADAM

DIET IN DIABETES SHOULD CONSIST OF 50-60% CARBOHYDRATES, 10-20 PROTIENS, AND 20-30% FROM FATS. ESPECIALLY FATS SHOULD BE OF MONO UNSATURATED AND POLYUNSATURATED FATTY ACIDS.

CHICKEN IS A GOOD SOURCE OF PROTIEN TOO BUT IT CAN BE TAKEN IN A GAP OF 15 DAYS ONCE.

I SUGGEST TO AVOID PORK AT ALL COST.

I SUGGEST YOU TO HAVE LOT OF VEGETABLES AND FRUITS IN MODERATE QUANTITY WHEN YOU ARE HUNGRY

I REALLY SUGGEST YOU TO HAVE RICE IN SUFFICIENT QUANTITY, BECAUSE IT IS A COMPLEX CARBS WHICH IS RECOMMENDED.
