1500 calories diet

What are we talking about?

It is not the normal diet plan that we are concerned with. It is a special diet for the patients who are diabetic. This diet is recommended by the doctors to a diabetic patient for restricting his daily intake of calories. It is all about controlling the level of calories in the blood by maintain the calories intake side by side.

If you are both diabetic and overweight then your doctor may recommend a diet that limits your intake to 1,500 calories a day. To keep the blood sugar levels in control, a diabetic diet strikes a balance among the carbohydrates, fats and proteins you take. It is also that this diet restricts calories and fats.

What does it do?

The diet will control the carbohydrates and fats excess in your body. It will help in also doing the following things:

Blood sugar is the quantity of glucose (simple sugar) in your blood. Glucose is the chief source of energy for your body. Glucose comes from the carbohydrates in the food you eat.
