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.http://www.southbeach-diet-plan.com/food_list.html http://www.southbeachcenturyclub.com/phase.php?ph=1
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,
