Decrease carbs: A simple diabetic eating plan is to have no more than 2 measured servings of carbohydrates (sugars, starches) per meal (breakfast, lunch, dinner) and no more than 1 measured servings of carbohydrates per snack (2 snacks per day). Starches include bread, pasta, rice, and starchy vegetables e.g. potatoes, beans (other than green beans). One serving of carbohydrate equals 15grams of carbohydrates.
