What is a controlled carbohydrate diet?

This diet is useful for patients with diabetes. In a controlled carbohydrate diet, meals contain proportional amounts of foods rich in carbohydrates. This means that the amount of carbohydrate-rich foods in breakfast, lunch and dinner is the same. This stability helps to control blood sugar. In this diet, meals should be balanced, that is, foods from all main groups (starches, fruits, vegetables, low-fat dairy products, chicken and fish, meat with low-fat meat products and healthy fats) are selected.

Controlled carbohydrate diet guide:


Eat at specific times every day.
Have a balanced diet.
Limit eating foods high in sugar
Ask your nutritionist to calculate the amount of energy and carbohydrates you need.
Pay attention to the assigned food portion.
Carefully pay attention to the labels without sugar and without added sugar or diet.
Main meals and snacks should contain healthy fats for heart health.
Use fish at least twice a week.
Fatty fish such as salmon, tuna and sardines are rich sources of omega-3 fats and are beneficial for heart health.
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, consult your doctor
