Diabetes Meal Planning Tools

The Plate Method

The plate method is a simple way to build a balanced meal that can help you manage your blood sugar.

Carbohydrate Counting

Carb counting is simply adding up the total grams of carbs in your meals and snacks.

Carbohydrates are found in many different foods. When managing diabetes or prediabetes, the amount and type of carbohydrates you consume is important to help control blood sugar levels. Added sugars – which can be found in sweet teas, flavored yogurts, and some baked goods – are a form of carbohydrate that contribute empty calories (i.e. they have no nutritional value other than calories) and can cause blood sugar levels to rise. To help manage blood sugar levels and reduce added sugars, use Splenda Sweeteners to sweeten teas, yogurts, baked goods in place of sugar.

For people with prediabetes or type 2 diabetes, weight loss may be recommended to be able to manage blood sugar levels without the use of additional medications. People who lose weight gradually (1-2lbs per week) are more successful at keeping it off5 and smart swaps with Splenda® Brand Sweeteners can help! Work with your doctor, nurse, Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialist, or Registered Dietitian Nutritionist to identify a healthy weight for your lifestyle.
