    All carbohydrates become sugar in the body.  Controlling the amount and type of carbohydrates in your diet is the best way to manage diabetes.

    Avoid added sugar.

    Avoid processed foods.

    NEVER drink your carbohydrates.  (liquid sugar absorbs the fastest and causes the highest sugar spikes in the blood.)  All drinks should be 0 calorie - 0 carbs.  

    Learn the difference between "slow carbs" and "fast carbs" and base the majority of your diet around the "slow carbs".  They digest slower and don't cause high sugar spikes after eating them.

    Consult your doctor or a dietitian to help you set up a daily carbohydrate goal.  For example, the doctor might recommend no more than 50 carbohydrates per meal and no more than 200 total carbohydrates per day.  (again - that is JUST AN EXAMPLE.)

    A balanced one. These days diabetics don't need a special diet, they did before medication got advanced, which wasn't that long ago.
