With the accelerated pace of life, we often eat ready-made food or frozen foods, and a corresponding reduction in fresh fruits and vegetables, poultry, livestock, fish, and other unprocessed natural foods. When we purchase, we can buy bananas, we never buy bananas pudding; we can buy pork, we never buy sausages; we should buy fresh vegetables, rather than with the off-the-shelf high-fat salad dressing salad. So you can intake of most vitamins and minerals, rather than eat processed foods, excess salt, sugar, starch and fat. It is worth mentioning that patients with diabetes should limit the vegetable oil to 25 grams a day.

Whole grains contain endosperm, germ and bran and whole grains. Some studies showed that if people eat more grains, the body's sensitivity to insulin is higher, and the lower the probability of diabetes. You can regard to eating whole grains for three times a day as target: at breakfast, you can change to eat bread which was made of whole grains, or eat a bowl of cereal or whole grain oatmeal; you can eat a whole wheat bread to instead of white bread at lunch; at dinner you can eat a corn or the consumption of brown rice.
