Cottage cheese helps lose weight. Half a cup = 12 g of protein, and a source of leucine, an amino acid which is a building block for muscles. Choose a low-fat, no-sodium-added version. Pair with fruit/add to smoothie/ oatmeal. Enjoy.

Fiber is a carbo like sugars and starches. But your body doesn’t digest fiber, so doesn’t affect your blood sugar. Fiber also keeps you full. Get enough fiber! Women need min. 25 gms/day; Men 38 gms/day. Eat fruits/veg/wholegrain.

Diabetics are at higher risk for high blood pressure, leading to heart disease. Too much salt raises your blood pressure. Go for herbs and spices for flavor.  Limit salt to 2300 mg a day, max.
