Carbohydrate: Back to the Basics.
People with pre-diabetes and diabetes pay a lot of attention to carbohydrate
because it is the primary determinant of post-meal blood glucose levels.
Carbohydrate is one of the three building blocks that make up all the foods
you eat. The other two are protein and fat. Whether or not you have diabetes
or pre-diabetes, carbohydrate is an important part of a healthy eating plan
because carbohydrate-rich foods provide energy, fiber and important vitamins
Everybody (even people with pre-diabetes or diabetes) needs to eat some carbohydrate
each day. In fact, the average minimumdaily amount
of carbohydrate recommended, or the RDA (Recommended Dietary Allowance),
is 130 grams/day.
With only 5 grams of digestible carbohydrate per serving (2 ounces dry, about
5 ounces cooked), Dreamfields pasta can easily fit into most meal-time carbohydrate
How Many Carbs Do You Need Daily?
Most women trying to manage blood glucose levels need about 45-60 grams of
carbohydrate at each of three meals and 15 grams carbohydrate for snacks
as needed. Most men trying to manage blood glucose levels need about 60-75
grams of carbohydrate at each of three meals and 15-30 grams carbohydrate
for snacks as needed. The amount that you need depends on your age, weight,
activity, and any diabetes medications you may take. Consult
with a registered dietitian to discuss how much carbohydrate is right
for you at each meal and snack (if snack(s) are needed).
