Plan de intercambio de alimentos

(Exchange Meal Plan)

Muchas personas que padecen de diabetes siguen un programa de equilibrio alimentario denominado "plan de intercambio de alimentos" como guía de alimentación diaria. A los fines de este plan, los alimentos se dividen en seis grupos: féculas, frutas, leche, grasas, hortalizas y carne. El plan establece el tamaño de la porción de cada alimento (la cantidad) y, dentro de cada grupo, cada porción tiene una cantidad similar de calorías, proteínas, carbohidratos y grasa.

De esta manera, la persona consigue flexibilidad en el planeamiento de sus comidas, puesto que puede "intercambiar" o reemplazar alimentos de acuerdo con listas de comidas de contenido nutricional semejante. El uso del plan para equilibrar la cantidad de carbohidratos que se consumen es muy importante para las personas con diabetes, porque estos alimentos son los principales responsables del aumento del nivel de azúcar en sangre que se produce después de comer.
