Family Food Choices: A Guide to Weight and Diabetes Control.
Indian Health Service (PHS/HSA), Rockville, MD.
Written for American Indians who have diabetes, this folder explains diabetes and outlines a weight control program and diet. The folder discusses the five things diabetics can do to help control their disease: lose weight, watch the amount and kind of fat eaten, eat more food with fiber, avoid sugar, and avoid alcohol. Charts for foods containing fats--meat, fowl, fish, eggs, dairy, oils and fats--list common foods by low, medium, high, and very high fat content and suggest how frequently these foods should be used. Charts for foods containing fiber--vegetables, fruits, starches--list common foods by high, medium, and low fiber content and suggest ways to eat more fiber. A discussion of sugar suggests foods to avoid and ways to eat less sugar. Tips on how to drink less alcohol suggest drinks which can be substituted. (LFL)
