Research shows that losing weight at a rate of about a pound a week on a diet moderate in fat and calories effectively helps prevent type 2 diabetes. But if you're looking to get the most out of your healthy meals, try incorporating these five diabetes superfoods.
Any fresh veggies are essential to preventing diabetes, but spinach, collards and kale are also a good source of iron without the saturated fat found in animal products. Plus they can help fill up your plate if you're feeling deprived by smaller portions.
Dairy may seem like a diet-buster, but lowfat milk, yogurt and cottage cheese can be worth the extra calories, as they boost your intake of both calcium and, if they're fortified, vitamin D.
One of just a handful of foods rich in vitamin A, sweet potatoes also boast a ton of fiber. And their sweetness can make them feel like a treat, especially sprinkled with a touch of cinnamon.
Omega 3 fatty acids, like those found in salmon and certain other fishes, help protect your heart, which is crucial in diabetes prevention. Just try to avoid adding extra fat, especially saturated, when you prepare it.
