Well i would say there is no right diet and you have to find what suits you and what you can comfortably deal with. If you are looking for a slow pace then record what you eat and aim for a small deficit against your rdi. If you are doing the exercise too then that will increase your deficit. Don't forget you might want to talk to your Dr about any sort of diet so it doesn't compromise your health and any meds you take. Good luck Smile

I don't know what your doctor recommended but there was just a study published that argued that cutting carb was an effective way of dealing with diabestes 2
(it was a meta study - they reviewed studies)
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23364002
Here is what the study said

Quote:
RESULTS:

A total of 20 RCTs were included (n = 3073 included in final analyses across 3460 randomly assigned individuals). The low-carbohydrate, low-GI, Mediterranean, and high-protein diets all led to a greater improvement in glycemic control [glycated hemoglobin reductions of -0.12% (P = 0.04), -0.14% (P = 0.00Cool, -0.47% (P < 0.00001), and -0.28% (P < 0.00001), respectively] compared with their respective control diets, with the largest effect size seen in the Mediterranean diet. Low-carbohydrate and Mediterranean diets led to greater weight loss [-0.69 kg (P = 0.21) and -1.84 kg (P < 0.00001), respectively], with an increase in HDL seen in all diets except the high-protein diet.
CONCLUSION:

Low-carbohydrate, low-GI, Mediterranean, and high-protein diets are effective in improving various markers of cardiovascular risk in people with diabetes and should be considered in the overall strategy of diabetes management.

A lot of people with type II diabetes have gotten excellent control over their blood sugar with a low carb diet.

Make your own veggie burgers. They aren't hard. You can freeze them with wax paper between and pop them apart. Much less $$$ and you can control what goes into them.
