There is no one-size-fits-all approach to eating healthily but it is important to have a regular meal pattern and make healthy food choices. The traditional approach to diabetes focuses on limiting refined sugars and foods that release sugars during digestion, including starches, breads and fruits. Even with carbohydrates reduced, the diet may contain an unhealthy amount of fat and protein. Therefore, diabetes experts have taken care to limit fats especially saturated fats that can raise cholesterol. The new approach focuses more attention on fat and encourages avoiding trans fats and limiting saturated fats.
