The TLC nutrition for Diabetics
The Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes (TLC) nutrition was developed with more than diabetics in
mind. It is a vitamin that is recommended to people with top cholesterol, heart or other
cardiovascular diseases and the ones that have been diagnosed with diabetes.
This diet consists of a set of pointers that supply percentage ranges of what a patient
should eat from every and every food group. The aim is to supply flexibility in alternatives while
ensuring that the choices made are helpful to the condition that is being treated. In the
beginning it is a good idea to partner with a dietician to ensure the calculations that you
are making are accurate and that you are making the best meals choice decisions.
The TLC diet provides the following eating guidelines:
* The total amount of fat that is eaten in a day will have to add up to so much much less than 25-35% of
the energy that are fed on
* Of the 25-35% fat intake it must be broken down into the following categories:
saturated less than 7%; monounsaturated less than 20%; polyunsaturated 10%
* 50-60% of a day?s worth of calories must be derived from carbohydrates
* Eat at least 20-30 grams of high-quality fiber each day
* The protein consumed must equal 15-20% of the energy for the day
* Cholesterol should be limited and kept underneath 200mg per day
As the diet is a set of pointers that do not include the calculations necessary to
determine if you are meeting the requirements you should book an appointment with a
dietician to understand what you need to do. Once you have been shown how to make
the calculations and have been given a sample meal plan you can use those as a template
to create many variations of the TLC diet. You can also glean much of this information
by reading the meals labels on packages.
