Good article. The one piece of information that I think should be added is that the more fat you add to your diet the less hungry you will feel and the easier the body can absorb fat-soluble vitamins. This can include saturated fats which are now known not to cause heart disease at all if they come either from tropical oils or pasture-fed animal products. I would also add that for someone with diabetes or pre-diabetes most fruit has to go as well since it is too high in sugar. I have been able to reduce my A1c levels from 5.9 (pre-diabetic) to under 5.7 by only having one small serving of berries or half an apple a day and eating mostly vegetables instead. I also avoid potatoes, corn, sweet potatoes, grains, legumes and any kind of sweetener other than very occasional Stevia or a teaspoon of Xylitol.

You can talk to God all you want and that's great, but the changes happen when you start listening to him.

I thought this was a very good article on Diabetes as well as most of the articles off to the left of the main article. Very good info and food for thought.

I know I have not really been taking too good of care with my Diabetes. Yes I am taking my Metformin but my diet is crap. I am doing great with my breakfasts and snack as I have a cooler in my car filled with citrus fruits, apples, pears, grape tomatoes and cucumbers for snacks. Lunches are basically soups or salads but not like the ones i used to make with tons of veggies in them. Dinner is whatever is available where I am at at.

I can't wait to get back into my house, not sure when that will be. Still have no response from the insurance company. I can't wait to get back to my daily Green Smoothies. I am not even going to the gym any more because the gym is where I used to live by my house. Since I never know where in the state of NJ I will be I cancelled my membership. I was never near enough to go there anymore, so the exercise part of this article I am not doing either.

Please take the time to read the articles and glean what you can from it to help you with your diabetes. It is a great read!
