What fats, oils, and sweets can I have if I have diabetes?

ANSWER

Fats, oils, and sweets are tough to resist, but it’s easy to overdo them and gain weight, which makes it harder to manage your diabetes. Best choices include:

• Natural sources of vegetable fats, such as nuts, seeds, or avocados (high in calories, so keep portions small)

• Foods that give you omega-3 fatty acids, such as salmon, tuna, or mackerel

• Plant-based oils, such as canola, grapeseed, or olive oils
