Within a healthy balanced diet, a man needs around 2,500kcal a day to maintain his weight. For a woman, that intake is around 2,000kcal a day.
The Diabetes.co.uk website has suggested a 30day meal plan for diabetic patients providing a detailed planner for 30 breakfast, 30 lunch and 30 dinner ideas.
To make it easy to see what you are eating and the number of calories it provides, they have made the serving sizes easy to divide.
