Give me a proper diet for diabetes

My dad is getting treated for his diabetes . His sugars have been in the 400-range so we are in the process of changing his meds and drastically changing his diet . The only problem is that he doest ever have time for a sit down meal and the food options on my moms menu arent exactly diabetic friendly. What does your diet consist of and how do you manage you diabetes. Your help is greatly appreciated.

Diabetic diet should be low in calories and glucose content especially. That is the key. Medications and exercise is also very important in management.
