Hi I am just starting You on a diet, and have been trying to change my eating habits, I know it looks like there is only about 1,000 calories a day allowed and this is my question. My Dr said in order for me to lose weight the right way I need to eat between 1500 and 1600 calories a day. I have Type 2 Diabetes and take meds for it, I was wondering if anyone else out there is dealing with DM and if it is affecting their BS at all, is it staying regular? Are you adjusting well? I just want to get healthy and do believe this is the diet for me, I have tried everything elseCrying or Very sad but am determined to make this the year I get healthy!!!Very Happy. On another note I "hate" fish is there anyone out there who can recommend some recipes that are allowed and also taste good? The only fish I like to eat is deep fried smothered in tartar sauce but that defeats the purpose. I had a friend recommend ahi tuna, which I haven't been able to find, and my mother suggested mahi mahi, and orange roughy. any help much appreciated.
make it a great day!!!!

I have Type 2 and am not on medication. I have to be careful what I eat for breakfast and make certain that I eat the snacks. I felt myself dipping low twice (BS 75 and 81) when I at cereal for breakfast. I really like Kashi Go Lean Hot Cereal. I cook it with 2/3 cup water and add 1/2 a banana after the first minute. I could seriously eat it every day. Good luck on your journey. The rewards will be fruitful (I've lost 8 lbs in 3 weeks and haven't really done much exercising).

I'm also a diabetic ..type 2..on meds and shots(grrrrrrrrrr)My main idea of weight loss is once i'm down (alotta pounds)then no more shots hopefully.My bs used to run 500 to 600 and now since i've started WW in september it's down to 120 which is norm so i'm happy but still on meds but I have a lot more to lose but it's a good sign.Wish you's luck!!!

Hello again.. I do not know why the posts are not going through. How are you doing? How did your weekend go?
I have been running a lot and eating a little more freely. I am scaling back and getting back into more of the healty foods. Just thought I would try again to reach you.

I was just diagnosed in December with type 2. I am still trying to figure out this food thing also. Fortunately, I like fish and live on the Gulf Coast. YES, our seafood is safe and I can get fresh 4 blocks down the street from my house. The problem is my husband won't eat fish and I will not cook double meals.
I also have a lot of weight to loose. We were walking everyday until I injured my foot. I hope to be back exercising this weekend.
We are eating a lot of fresh vegetables and lean meats. The carbs are still a mystery, haven't quite figured that part out (pasta lovers).
I forgot to mention that my husband had a heart attack in November so my diet is not hurting him. Now if he would only eat fish.

My MIL has type 2 diabetes and she was told to lower here carb intake first to 45, then to 30 and since then has lost weight, and been taken off at least one med, maybe 2 (sorry, details are sketchy there) and she walks everyday.
Just wondering if lower calories or lower carbs is the better path for change.
As far as fish, take fish oil supplements. It has to be better than nothing, imo.

Thanks BabesRobin57 - we have a local asian market & a co-op that is awesome so should be able to find it if being harvested somewhere. Sounds like it could be used much like a baked potato, too.

How can a low carb, low fat plan work? If you reduce carbs - your body needs fat for processing. I am confused?
