As you know, they say a journey begins with a single step, so welcome!
When you say you're trying to eat better foods, does that mean you've spoken with a diabetes educator? If you do some research in other posts in this forum, you'll see that I sound like a broken record when I say, "Diabetes is a carbohydrate intolerance disease." Lose the carbs (or as many as you can!) and you'll see blood sugar become much more manageable, weight loss will become easier, and cravings for sugar and carbs will vanish.
An incredible weight loss story is here:www.cnn.com/2011/HEALTH/04/22/weight.loss.
My type 2 (never-been-on-a-diet-before) husband has fully embraced her plan and has lost 50 pounds so far. His blood sugars have also leveled out and he's feeling much healthier.
Stick with us; there's lots of help available!
type 1 diabetic,
showing this disease who's boss!
