Adjusting your Diabetic Diet for Special Occasions

Adjusting your diabetic diet for Birthday parties, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, holidays and special occasions that are centered on food can be difficult. Because you have to watch for the signs of diabetes attacks. For a diabetic a celebration can be a stressful time, you want to partake in all of the good food but most times it is not made with a diabetic in mind. If the frequency of these events is not too often, you can adjust your diet for special occasions so you too can have some of the treats available.

The hardest part about preparing for a special occasion is if you do not know what is going to be served. If this is the case, a quick call to your host or hostess can be made. Most people will not mind you asking especially if you have dietary needs that need to be taken into consideration. Once you do know what is being served, plan your meals for that day accordingly. You may want to have fewer carbohydrates with your breakfast and snack to make up for the extra ones you will have at a birthday party where pizza is being served.
