To control your blood sugars, you need to control the amount of carbohydrate-containing food, fruit, starch, yogurt and milk, you eat at each meal. The amount you need depends on your blood sugar goals and calorie needs. The American Diabetes Association says most people can start with 45 to 60 g carbohydrate per meal. To help lower blood cholesterol levels, you need to include foods high in fibre and limit the amount of saturated fats and trans fats in your diet. In addition to high-fibre foods, eat whole grains, fruits and vegetables. Choose lean cuts of meat and low-fat and non-fat dairy foods to limit your intake of saturated fat. Trans fats are primarily found in baked goods.
