Getting Started With Diabetes Meal Planning Often, when people are diagnosed with diabetes, they don’t know where to begin. One way is to adjust the portions you are already eating. It’s an easy way to get started with managing blood glucose levels. Focus more on filling a 9-inch plate with nonstarchy vegetables and having smaller portions of starchy and protein foods. You don’t need any special tools or have to do any counting. It’s simple and effective — draw an imaginary line on your plate, select your foods, and enjoy your meal! You may have heard of this as the “Plate Method.” Once you’ve changed your portion sizes, you can work on making healthier choices for each food group. 1/4 1/2 25 1/4
