Dietary tips for weight loss in type 2 diabetes

Eat more plant-based products
Replace animal products with plant products as much as possible.
Avoid sugary drinks
Avoid sugary drinks and fruit juices and do not drink alcohol
Eat a maximum of 3 main meals and 3 snacks
Keeping the glucose level in balance is best if you have three meals spread over the day and take your carbohydrate intake into account.
Drink 1.5-2 liters of fluid daily
Drink water before eating or when you start feeling hungry. This makes you feel satiated faster. Choose water, tea or coffee. Preferably without sugar and milk.
Eat protein with carbohydrates
