Good Morning Everyone!!

Wellll late last year I was diagnosed with diabetes.... and I would love to try and find some other ppl out there that have or currently are struggling with this disease. I am trying so hard to get healthier, but it seems like a neverending battle! I had lost about 16 lbs before Christmas and can you believe that from the last week in November until now I have gained just over 6 lbs!!!! SIX POUNDS!!!! That is insane! I need all the love, support and tips that you can give me guys! I gotta do something! Need to get me off of these meds!

Brooke, the system I did to lose my weight and get healthier was created by a famous diabetic formulator. Check my pics, etc., and if you'd like to know more about it, feel free to message me! Smile

Have you checked out the GI diet? Its meant for diabetics to help maintain blood sugar levels. I went from 168lbs to 143lbs on it!

hello i was diagnosed with diabetes 3 yrs ago i was 70lb overweight i was on meds that were making it so hard to lose weight i went on a diet called the cambridge diet (I live in scotland)i lost 50lb in 5 months my blood sugar went to normal levels. my cholestrol was normal and my blood pressure was perfect,now for the BUT, i never did the maintainance programme correctly and after about 6months i started to put it back on i am now about 40lb heavier.i have decided to go on the atkins diet as i found this to be the best one out there for diabetics.idont think i could do the cambridge again,my blood sugar levels are really high again.i feel i really let myself down putting it back on,but hopefully this time i'll keep it off.i really need some help and i'm looking for buddies.i have just joined this site and i'm not really sure how to navigate it or how to get buddies.any pointers would be appreciated

My husband went on the South Beach Diet with me and he has been diabetic a long time. His entire family of seven brothers and sister's are all diabetic, some on insulin, some on pills. Hubby was on pills (notice I said WAS). The south beach diet was written by a heart doctor but it also follows the glycemic index for low glycemic foods. Hubby had his meds reduced and in one year on the diet with me (he cheated more than me) he is no "NON-diabetic". he takes no meds at all and although his doctor continues to monitor him because of his history, he is not considered mecially a "non-diabetic".

I am going to include some links for helpful sites that can get you started on south beach diet. it's easy to do and only the first two weeks are severly restricted to get you over the cravings and into fat burning mode. Once you are past the first two weeks the diet is easier to follow and opens you up to much more food choices.

Just pick a diet that seems to follow along with your goals and what you believe you can live your life with. good luck and feel free to message me,
