Have just joined FS. I am doing low carb diet due to having diabetes and want to control by diet only if possible. Have found that low carb diet really helps with the blood glucose readings. Its tough going sometimes but just something that I have to do. Need to lose lots of weight too. Have lost 10lb so far. long way to go though

Welcome! Controlling your blood glucose is more important than losing weight if you want to become healthy. The weight will naturally come off if you get the diabetes under control. It's one of the great side effects of this way of eating! Look forward to seeing your progress. We can all succeed with a little support and encouragement and a will to get healthier! Good luck!
I'd rather be thin!
