Everyone welcome!!
Doing a lifestyle change such as this is hard!! I have been doing it for a while before I joined this site! When ever you falter (and you will) remember just to get back up because you are stronger for doing so!

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:

And here's a Spark Team for people with diabetes so you can connect with other members with diabetes.

I hope I helped!

Hi I need help with healthy eating. I am a diabetic and I am currently attending Lawson State Community College. I have to stay away from the cafeteria because the food is not cooked for diabetes. I don't know how to cook. I was wondering if there is a way to eat healthy without cooking? I'd like to hear some suggestions as I try this dieting thing one more time. I have failed at my diet routine almost 4 times now and I'm bout ready to give up.
