Diabetics always have to take the utmost care of their diet. However, Diwali involves delicious food and it becomes difficult to refuse everything, even for diabetics. At such times diabetics feel slightly depressed as they cannot have rich food items and sweets, fearing spikes in their blood sugar level. So how can a patient of diabetes still enjoy some Diwali fare? Let’s delve right into it..
Prepare for the Evening –
Along with preparing sweets and other food items with artificial sweeteners, you can also prepare your body for the evening. Add food with low or minimum calories from the morning so that your body can easily digest one or two sweets that you cannot avoid. Usually this is the case with the sweets that are offered to the deity and everyone is supposed to have it as ‘prasad’.
Make sure to have your blood tested before and after Diwali, so that you can control it immediately. Exercise is important if you plan to indulge a little, so don’t skip that workout no matter how light or heavy. Along with preparing sweets and other food items carefully, calculating the intake of calories on the day of Diwali will also help you enjoy with full vigour and enthusiasm. Even though your sweets will be prepared using artificial sweeteners, you mustn’t go overboard.
