  • Good job, and keep it up! I was diagnosed in Sept 2010 with type 2 diabetes. I changed my diet to vegan and increased my exercise levels and now 80 pounds lighter and no more diabetes.

  • I have fund this to be very true. When I became a diabetic over 6 years ago I dropped 20 pounds very fast ...I was not dieting at all. I was just watching the sugar and carbs that I was eating. Anytime I want to lose a few pounds I just watch sugar and carbs. Diabetes is my life now and I don't want to get any worse. Life style change not diet! emoticon - by CHUEYSMOM
