Abstract

India is presently the epicentre of diabetes, hypertension and heart disease. It is mainly the abrupt change in lifestyle, especially the dietary habits and excessive calorie consumption in recent times that has made the population diabetic. Hence, the successful management of diabetes depends on convincing the person to have a proper planning and control of good dietary habits.[1] Diabetes mellitus is a metabolic disease where body can properly neither use nor store energy. When one eats excess calories body responds by creating an undesirable rise in blood glucose. This can lead to hyperglycemia and associated micro- and macro vascular complications. Medical nutrition therapy or MNT is an integral part of diabetes prevention and management. One of its goals is to prevent or manage diabetes by promoting healthy food choices.[2]
