Were you looking for information about a Diabetic Diet? Diebetic diet is a common misspelling of diabetic diet.
 
For people who are diabetic, making healthy food choices is an essential part of controlling blood sugar levels. The Diabetes Food Pyramid is a general guide of what and how much to eat each day. Like a regular food pyramid, it is divided into different food groups: fruits; vegetables; milk; meats and meat substitutes; and fats, sweets, and alcohol. As part of your diabetic diet, it is important to limit the amount of fats and sweets you eat each day.
 
While the Diabetes Food Pyramid provides important guidelines, it cannot replace a diet created by a dietitian or doctor. The number of servings diabetics need every day varies from person to person, so this food pyramid offers a range of servings.
