In brief: Diet for diabetics

You would do well working with a dietician and or a nutritionist to review with you a proper diet plan.
In america, we eat too much, large portions, too concentrated fatty foods, too many carbohydrates that are easily converted to sugars, like bread and pasta. Make the changes now! don't waste another minute!

In brief: Prediabetic diet.

The diet for prediabetes includes fiber (35 grams daily for females, 50 grams for men).
Smaller more frequent meals is the rule as well. Eat five or six times daily, dividing the fiber amongst the meals evenly. Low fat, low cholesterol, rich in fruits and vegetables and lean protein sources. Supplementing cinnamon and chromium could help control the bloody sugars, too.

In brief: See below

Complex carbohydrates, meaning fresh fruits and vegetables, and little if none processed foods.
Lean meats, and dairy. Diet with mostly unsaturated fats and spreading the calories out in frequent small meals. Each meal should have a protein, a fat, and a complex carbohydrate, including whole grains and legumes. Skipping meals and large meals cause Insulin surges and are ill advised.
