I agree a Registered Dietitian is a great place to start. You can go to eatright.org and click on Find a Registered Dietitian. If you don't see one there, try calling your local hospital and see if they do out-patient counseling for diabetes.

The American Diabetes Association is another good resource. They have menu planning tips on their website. Other websites have sample menus posted - but be sure to check that they come from a reliable source. Its better to plan one yourself or with the help of an RD or physician though - that way it will be foods you like to eat and will give you a better chance of sticking with it.

*bump!*

This guy is asking for support, I don't think he's interested in wanting to know if he breathed today or some other assinine topic (like the ones I post), chime in so he can feel welcomed.

Thanks!

A nutritionist would be the best start for you and especially because of your diabetes (me, too).

When I first started here's what I did:
1.) I cut out all fried anything
2.) I limited my bread intake to 2 slices per day
3.) I drank water, coffee and skim milk
4.) I walked 30 every day at a FAST pace (15 min in one straight direction then turned around)
5.) I ate more frequently but a LOT less

In 6 to 8 weeks my daily avg blood sugar count dropped (to low 100s rather than mid 200's).

I didn't start lifting weights until I had already lost 50% of my totaly weightloss but only because I wasn't smart enough to start lifting right away.

I need help with my diet. It's been a bad couple years. I'm back in the gym but my Diabetes is worse. I'm 320 lbs @ 6'3" 47 yrs old. I'm am not very creative when it comes to deciding on meals. Is there a planner that suggest meals for each day, week, month??? Please point me in the right direction.

Mike
