I have a relative with diabetes. How are diabetics supposed to eat?
Because this diabetic i know eats sweets and drinks beer, but claims that he doesnt exactly know what a diabetic can eat, so he eats the stuff he knows he shouldn't eat.
Behavior modification has to be THEIR idea . . perhaps estate planning information would be more appropriate:
Diabetics should eat regular, healthy meals.
Low in refined (high glycaemic index) sugar, low fat.
Occasional moderate alcohol is Ok but with food would be best.

they need to wach wat they eat... but eat normally!!!!!!
He should definitely watch what he eats because if he doesn't, it can lead to problems with the heart, brain, blood and other things.
It also depends on which diabetes he has. Because with one diabetes the body doesn't utilize sugar normally. But with the other diabetes sugar is utilized normally, but water is not reabsorbed correctly leading to excessive urination.
diabetics can eat anything,
but they need to keep a eye on there sugar, and/or take insulin

A diabetic can eat anything that anybody else can, for the most part - they just have to make sure to take the appropriate amount of insulin to deal with the sugar in their bloodstream. Like anybody else, if they eat too much, they'll gain weight; if they don't eat enough (or don't take enough insulin), they'll probably lose weight. The notion that a diabetic can't have sweets or alcohol is very outmoded; as long as the person partakes in moderation, he can have anything he wants, just like anybody else.
Diabetics should follow the same diet that everyone should follow. Realistic portions, lots of fruit and vegetables, lean meat, and as little fat as possible.
Occasional indulgences are fine, too. One beer is not going to hurt a diabetic any more than it will a perfectly healthy person. The same with sweets.
Your diabetic friend needs to go to some classes to learn what to eat and how much, and check with his doctor to get some bloodwork done that will tell him how well he's doing controlling his blood sugar.
It's a myth that diabetics can't eat bread and things with carbs in them. Everybody needs to eat carbs, protien, and fat, every single day. Just not too much of any one thing.
Stay away from carbohydrates. Potatoes, rice, pasta, and bread.
