First off, welcome! Second, it's best to not consider this a "diet" because that implies a quick fix, something that you don't intend on sticking with in the long run. People who go on "diets" tend to gain back the weight and then some because they never intended on eating healthy/exercising in the long run. Instead, consider this a healthy lifestyle. It's a long-term change in overall health and wellness, and it's the most effective, in my opinion. It takes a lot of willpower, motivation and dedication but it's so rewarding it. Third, definitely learn how to cook! It's so worth it!
I highly suggest doing a "diabetes" search (use the search tool at the top of the page) and you'll come up with a ton of articles on how to manage and plan a meal with diabetes. Here's the Diabetes Diet Center I found:www.sparkpeople.com/resource/diabetes-diet
And here's a Spark Team for people with diabetes so you can connect with other members with diabetes. www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/groups_individ
I hope I helped!
