Diet Week: Day Six – Diabetic Diet Plans

[ 0 ] December 31, 2010 |

This is the last part of a six-part diet series. Each day this week, we’ve featured a different weight loss program or plan to help you achieve your New Year’s weight loss resolution.

It’s the final day of Diet Week, and we’re looking at diabetic weight loss diet plans.

Losing weight with diabetes is not an easy task because of dietary restrictions.

However, when you sign up for a weight loss program suited to diabetics, it can be possible – even simple – to manage your blood glucose and weight at the same time.

Both diet programs below are suited to people with type 2 diabetes.


Similar to the vegetarian diet plan we talked about in yesterday’s Diet Week post, Nutrisystem offers diabetic weight loss plans for men and women.

The program, called Nutrisystem-D, involves a low-glycemic meal plan that helps you lose weight and lower blood sugar, A1C and cholesterol. You’ll eat six times a day to help stabilize blood sugar. And, you’ll receive 24/7 support with access to counselors & dietitians. Plus, now get your first seven days free with our Nutrisystem coupons!


Also made for people with type 2 diabetes, Medifast‘s pre-planned diet program is clinically proven to help you control your weight while you manage your diabetes.

Medifast Plus for Diabetics provides the proper nutrition for people with diabetes while encouraging weight loss through portion control. The plan may even help eliminate the need for medication. In fact, a study showed that, after 34 weeks on the Medifast for Diabetes program, 24% of users decreased or eliminated their diabetes medication.

You can review the Medifast website for meal plan options and packages for diabetics. As with Nutrisystem, you’ll benefit from support from registered dietitians. See our Medifast coupons for savings.

Are you a diabetes patient looking to lose weight in the new year? Will you try out one of these programs?
