Protein and planning your meals: The vast majority of people in the US eat more protein than the daily recommended amount. The primary sources are meat, poultry, fish, and dairy products like milk and cheese, although a lot of protein comes from the legume vegetables.

Meat products are not equal as sources of protein, with some meats also having a very high fat content. Keeping fat consumption to a minimum should be a primary consideration in any diabetic's diet. Low fat, meat source of protein include skinless chicken and turkey, fish, and fat-free cheeses. Vegetables can be great sources of protein, since they generally do not contain fat. They do however, contain carbohydrates. Limiting protein consumption to within 30% of your diet should be a target for anyone suffering from diabetes.
