The amount of food you eat will affect the level of sugar in your blood. Eat small amounts of food. One easy way to eat less is to divide your plate into three parts. Half of the plate should contain vegetables. One-quarter of the plate should contain meat or protein, such as dal, fish, chicken, paneer, rajma etc. One quarter should contain a carbohydrate or starch, such as rice, corn, potato, or whole grain bread.
