  Background & Objectives: Adherence to a diabetic diet is one of the most important aspects of diabetes management. Compliance with a diabetic diet has usually been described in terms of total intake. We examined indexes of the use of specific foods that would normally be either recommended or prohibited by Food Frequency Questionnaire.

  Methods: In order to study the dietary habits of the patients with type II diabetes 228 outpatients with type II diabetes referring to Ardabil Diabetic Clinic were randomly selected.

  Results : A common diabetic diet was reported by 87.8% of women (N = 115) and 77.1 % of men (N = 74). The dietary habits of the patients showed their awareness of limiting use of simple sugars. Use of foods with high simple sugars (e.g.: honey, jam, soft drink) were low among the patients. Potato was consumed by 58.8% of the female and 74.2% of the male, and of 43.8% of the subjects used mulberry with tea.
