    Diabetes: Using a Plate Format to Plan Meals

    A plate format can be used to help you manage how you eat. It helps you see how much space each food should take on a plate.

    • Using a plate format will help you spread carbohydrate throughout the day, which will help keep your blood sugar level from going way up and way down.
    • A plate format is an easy and simple way to plan meals.
    • It can be used along with other meal-planning methods.
