Stable Sugar, Improved Energy

"Sometimes, people with diabetes become fearful of eating," says Virginia-based registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator Jill Weisenberger, MS, RD, CDE. "It's not uncommon for a person to eat the same four or five ‘safe' meals all the time." And while figuring out those three squares is key, finding snacks that won't send your sugar soaring is equally important. The right choices can help you keep up your energy, manage hunger, and even control blood sugar levels, says Weisenberger.
