Trying to lose weight can be hard enough, but throw diabetes into the pot and you’ve got one more factor to take into account. When you’re trying to adjust to a diabetic diet plan, you need to keep track of how much you normally eat at each meal and if you have snacks throughout the day.
As a diabetic, if you don’t eat regular meals, then it’s important for you to create an eating schedule. You need to see to it that you are eating breakfast, lunch, and dinner along with small snacks in between meals.
A diabetic diet plan takes into account your need to keep your blood sugar level consistent—and will make sure you eat good carbs at each meal, including snacks.
Here are three different online diabetes diet plans made specifically with diabetics in mind: 1) My Food Advisor’s Recipe for Healthy Living
The American Diabetes Association will send you monthly diabetes-friendly, recipes, tips to make adjustments to your meals, sample meal plans, plus videos on how to prepare healthy foods.

2) Nutrisystem Diabetic Program
Nutrisystem is a meal delivery program and is the perfect choice if you’d rather leave the cooking to somebody else. It’s for people with Type II diabetes. You eat 6 times a day, adding in your own fresh fruit, vegetables and dairy items. There’s no weighing, measuring or counting. (There’s also free access to counselors and dietitians.)
Learn more from the official site:
NutriSystem. Just click on Women’s Diabetic Program or Men’s Diabetic Program on the left-hand side menu once you’re there.
Nutrisystem usually has many different special offers. The latest one offers 3 weeks of free food:

3) Medifast for Diabetes
Medifast is a bit different than Nutrisystem. You don’t get full meals delivered to you. Instead, you receive U.S.-made shakes, soups, stews, chilis, oatmeals, scrambled eggs, fruit drinks, iced teas, hot beverages, bars and puddings. You would need to make one “Lean & Green” meal a day (a lean protein such as chicken, beef or fish, plus vegetables).
This is the latest deal I could find from Medifast:
