A Good Diabetic Meal Diet

Manage your Sugar Diabetes with a Sugar Diabetes Meal Plan

Donald Lawrence
As someone who suffers from diabetes, you might believe that the only way that you can contain your condition is through the utilization of medication. Fortunately, there are other things you can do besides taking medication to treat your sugar diabetes. You can have the same effect on your health as that medication by just making some small changes to your diet.
By creating a personal diabetes meal plan, the likelihood of actually maintaining the diet increases. Your plan can be made up of foods you enjoy if they are appropriate for diabetics. A food plan is helpful, but can’t be successful on its own. Don’t allow yourself to find ways to mentally back out of the meal plan by trying to find the perfect amount of time in your day to eat.
There are multiple advantages to using a healthful diabetes meal plan. Cholesterol levels and blood pressure can be controlled more easily with a solid diabetes meal plan. It will also keep your blood sugar levels in a normal range which is vital to controlling your diabetes.
While these benefits are obvious, your diabetic diet will also assist you in shedding your extra weight. Due to the fact that diabetes is often found in people that are overweight, it is crucial to try and eat a healthy diet so you can avoid adding those extra pounds. If you include foods you like, instead of those you don’t, in your diabetes meal plan, you will be more likely to eat healthy. This diet will pay off by doing away with the extra weight you carry around and aid you in keeping your body healthy.
Keep track of the calories and carbohydrates you are eating, as proper management of that is an essential factor of a satisfactory sugar diabetes meal plan. Use a food pyramid guide as reference when attempting to comprehend the quantities of each food group that your body should have. All you need to do is create a healthy meal plan that you can follow every day without stress, and you will be well on your way to controlling your sugar diabetes and improving your health.

I have a diabetic diet that worked for me. I substituted white rice  with red rice. I avoided eating  pasta and desserts. I’ve done that for almost 6 months now and  my weight went down from 55 kgs to 47 kgs. And my blood glucose level came back to normal. Why don’t you try it and let me know.

The National Monument or Monumen Nasional or commonly called Monas is located at the center of Merdeka Square in Central Jakarta. It symbolizes the fight for Indonesia’s independence. On top you will see a flame covered with a 50 kg gold foil. It is open daily  to the public from 8:00 to 3:00 pm everyday except on the last Monday of each month.
After Monas you can go and see the Istiqlal Mosque (Independence Mosque) . It is the largest mosque in Southeast Asia in terms of capacity to accommodate people. You can also see and visit the Merdeka Palace, the official residence of the President. It is a white structure that is so lovely to see.

When you tour Jakarta, you need to wear comfortable shoes and clothing. It can get so hot at times.

Another must see spot is going up to Puncak. This will take a whole day. Better start early as traffic can be very heavy at times. And during weekends and holidays they control the traffic of cars going up and going down. So better go there on a weekday.

On your way up first stop is the Taman Safari. It is a safari park where you can see tigers, elephants, orangutans and other animals in their original habitat. You can take a car inside the park and drive through the animals while they walk around. You can even feed some animals. But watch out for signs that say – DO NOT FEED ANIMALS or DO NOT ROLL DOWN YOUR WINDOWS. Because you don’t want to ruin your vacation with a bitten hand. Better be there on a weekday because traffic while watching these animals can be very slow.
Spend two to three hours on this park .
Zebras will meet and greet you while you passby
On your way up to Puncak, you will see a vast tea plantation. This is a breathtaking view. You will see hectares of tea plants.

Then finally you will see the biggest flower garden in Asia – Taman Bunga Nusantara located in Cipanas. Inside the park are 11 different parks such as the Taman Bali ( Bali Garden), Taman Jepang ( Japanese Garden) and many others.

Label your things

I have this habit or we can call it passion for labeling my things. I always label my things so i can easily identify what it is or what it is for. I brought this fancy labeler that helps me a lot in labeling my things. I like to see my things in order – that’s the reason why i label all my things.

When i was small , my Dad brought me a Dymo labeller. I used it to label all my notebooks and books and other things that i own. I used it for a couple of years. But now i found this labelling machine that is so handy and easy to use. Its a Casio EZ Labeller. It’s a label printer that uses 6, 9, 12, 18 mm label tapes that comes in different colors. It has a qwerty type pad and easy to use.  It runs on 6 AA batteries.

Music for Babies

When my babies where still inside my womb. I would let them hear music – classical ones. Good thing a friend of mine gave me a load of classical CDs.  I would listen to them on my way to work or even when i am asleep.

Babies can benefit a lot when they listen to classical music. Babies are stimulated by music. It has been studied that a fetus that is on its 15th week can already hear sounds.
When my babies were born, i tried playing the same classical music and to my surprise they would respond .
Oftentimes, crying babies are consoled by classical music. It helps them relax. My three sons were exposed to it a lot. I even let them hear classical music while i was giving them their daily bath. It helped a lot. They cried less. They love it. 
When they grew up all three boys were all musically inclined individuals.In fact they love music. They can sing, play musical instruments such as guitar, piano and violin. I owe this to my Mom who told me to expose my sons to music at an early stage.

Raising BOYS This is a sharing of a full time MOM on how to raise boys.

3 boys in a row

I waited for them for three years. I was told that i wont have babies at all. My OB told me that our chromosomes where not compatible. I couldn’t believe it.I had planned everything but then hearing these really made me cry.
We tried different ways on how we could have a baby. There was even one instance when my pregnancy test became positive and after a month of lying in bed i was told that the ultrasound did not show any fetus at all. I was shocked and frustrated but then after lots of prayers and hoping and longing i finally gave birth to a handsome, cute, little baby boy. 11 months after i again gave birth to another handsome and cute baby boy, then again after a year i again gave birth to my third handsome and cute baby boy.
Let me share with you how i raised them up 3 boys in a row.



People often asks me how many children do you have? I tell them i have 3 boys. They say so tell me how do you raise 3 boys. Raising my 3 boys is not hard. In fact when they were growing up i didn’t have any problems with them. So for me raising boys is not as hard as it seems.
