Diabetes Self-Management Blog

As the holiday season gets under way, tips for how to handle eating at office parties, family events, etc. begin to crop up. This year, diabetes bloggers are offering advice on how you can keep your weight and blood sugar under control as you navigate the holidays. Here are a couple of our favorite tips from around the blogosphere:

  • “Offer to bring a dish, especially a dessert dish, that you know all the nutritional content about. …you know exactly what the carb count and serving size is so you can enjoy without worry.”

    From 5 Tips On Healthy Diabetic Eating During The Holiday Season at Diabetes Notes

  • “Realize that the holiday season only consists of two or three actual days. Indulge only on those days, and continue with your good weight loss goals and strategies all of the days in between.”
