Eating right not only helps you manage your blood sugar but also helps lower cholesterol and blood pressure. A cardiac and diabetic diet encourages you to eat more fresh, whole foods and less saturated fat and sodium.

Consult a doctor before making any dietary changes. A cardiac and diabetic meal plan incorporates the diet basics for both diabetes and heart health. That means continuing to control your carb intake by eating the same amount of carbs at each meal as determined by your dietitian or doctor to manage blood sugar.

If you don't know your meal carb needs, the ADA suggests starting at 45 to 60 grams. In addition, to improve heart health, eat more nutrient-rich foods such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy, poultry, fish and nuts, while limiting foods high in calories and sodium that offer very little nutrition, such as soda, cake and fast food.

Limit sodium to less than 2, milligrams a day, or 1, milligrams if you have high blood pressure. Make whole grains a priority at breakfast. Whole grains, as well as fruits and vegetables, are a good source of fiber, and getting more fiber in your diet helps with blood sugar control and lowers your risk of heart disease. Or try a toasted whole-wheat English muffin topped with 2 teaspoons of peanut butter and an apple.

The American Heart Association recommends you eat at least two servings of fish a week. The omega-3 fatty acids found in fatty fish such as salmon and tuna improve heart health.
