Welcome, Diane. I'm so pleased to hear of your success conquering diabetes. Eating well can manage or reverse many illnesses. I just read that when you have a spike in your blood sugar, the residual effects of that last for two weeks! That means for two weeks it will be tougher to lose weight than if you hadn't "cheated". That fact cured me from wanting to have "a little something sweet" once in a while. Geez, nothing tastes that good that I should suffer for it for two weeks! LOL
Keep going! Cat

I am a new member to Whole Foods for Health team, and I am very glad to have found it. I became a vegan in Oct 07 after having been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. I followed Dr. Neal Bernard's program for reversing diabetes. Within six months, I had lost 30 pounds and my numbers improved greatly. My challenge now is to stay on course.
