There are NO foods which must be completely excluded from diabetic diet. It is also NOT necessary to avoid sugar competely. It IS necessary to follow the advice of your medical team and follow a diet that achieves a healthy weight. It IS important to monitor your blood sugar levels and keep them under tight control.  Make sure to follow these guidelines of Low Fat, Low Sugar, Low Salt, Plenty of Fruit and Vegetables, Plenty of Complex Carbohydrates (wholemeal bread, potatoes, grains, beans, peas, and other starchy foods)

Hi...i am a diabetic at 36 and know that a combination of diet, medication and activity will help keep the complications at bay for sometime. My questions is if there are any specialized meals or food items which i should be eating to keep the sugar count within range? Anything that will bring the count down drastically and enable me to eat the solitary cake each day? :)
