Balanced Diet

  • Make sure you include protein, fat, and carbs everytime you eat! 

  • At meals we generally recommend 1 serving of protein with 1-2 servings of fat, and 1 serving of non-starchy and/or starchy carbs. You might find only including non-starchy carbs (and no other starches) keeps your blood sugar balanced best. Or, you might find you need more than one serving of carbs. And that’s okay!

  • Between your meals, have a snack that’s about half the meal serving size: 1⁄2 serving of protein with 1 serving of fat and 1 serving of carbs, ideally non-starchy.

  • Remember, this isn’t about getting too nit picky with counting calories, carbs, protein or fat. It’s about making sure you eat all three macronutrients (PFC) every time you eat to keep your blood sugars stable to feel your best!

  • Tweaking is necessary! The goal is to find what works best for you.
