Most carbs come from starches, fruits, milk, and sweets. Try to limit carbs with added sugars or those with refined grains, such as white bread and white rice. Choose healthy carbohydrates, such as fruit, vegetables, whole grains, beans, and low-fat milk, as part of your diabetes meal plan.

I disagree with this post. Eating up 6 times a day with the macros that you have mentioned will definitely make the disease worst. You can't treat dietary disease with more food rich in carbohydrates.
