With all the meal planning services available now, not a single one caters to gestational diabetes. Keto and Type 2 diabetic advocates like to classify gestational diabetes along with Keto and Type 2, but there are differences that set the gestational diabetes diet apart from both.
The Gestational Diabetic creates meal plans specifically for gestational diabetes with conservative carbohydrate limits in mind, as well as balancing macro-nutrients. These meal plans are also great for a diabetic pregnancy.
Having a PDF or list of foods to eat is helpful, but that doesn't answer the question of what to eat. I'm sure that's a question you ask yourself a few times a week, if not every day. That's why a meal plan is of great value.
Our meal plans have dietitian-crafted recipes for full meals and snacks, and they're organized into weekly plans with shopping lists, tips, suggested ingredient swaps, nutritional information and more! They're designed to give you everything you need to manage your blood sugar and reduce the stress of meal planning, prepping and grocery shopping. All of the recipes are real food, savory and sweet, use fruits and vegetables, and all meals are low carb and low glycemic.
A meal plan doesn't mean you have to follow it to a T. It's important to follow your body's cues and eat what you're "in the mood for." Let the meal plan serve as a guide to help you stay on track so when you don't know what to eat, or when you didn't plan anything, you can refer to the meal plan and have an immediate answer. It lessens your chances of having to 'grab a quick bite,' which is almost always unhealthy and high carb in a convenience-based culture.
