Ans: Your ideal body weight is based on your Body Mass Index (BMI). Being a diabetic, blood sugar levels need to be controlled and maintained within the normal range. Follow a balanced diet which includes whole grain cereals which include complex and high fiber carbohydrates like brown rice, brown bread, ragi, multi grains etc. Consume low calorie fruits and vegetables; include lean meat such as egg white, fish and chicken without skin and organ. Avoid high fat and sugar foods, foods containing refined cereals like red meat, maida, fries, packaged, fast foods, etc. as they will add excess calories in your diet and increase fat percentage. Exercise for at least 30-40 minutes daily for at least 5 days a week. Include aerobic exercises like walking or running and strengthening exercises to increase lean mass.
