Hi, although I am not 60+ yet, I still need to lose over 100 lbs. I was just recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and I am finding it very frustrating trying to figure out what to eat and what not to eat to first get and then keep my blood sugar in control. Any insight, encouragement, suggestions and humor will be greatly appreciated.

Hi there...

I have lost 50 lbs in 5 months and no longer take medication for the high blood pressure or high cholesterol I had. I finally understand that when they say a "Life Style Change" they don't really mean it is going to be giving up a few of your favorite things to eat. They really mean you need to make some serious changes like giving up eating all meat, no more processed food, coffee, no more sugar or flour. No more food out of a box, can, bag or jar. And after you come to grips that is what they really mean it all starts to become a little more clear. How badly do you want to loose the 100 lbs? How much do you want to be off your medications and be truly healthy? Those are only questions each of us can answer for ourselves. For me I finally understood and realized that the "Life Style Change" meant a lot more than I ever imagined or dreamed. I guess now I look back and think why did it have to take me so long. Always eat organic but especially, carrots, apples, grapes, strawberries and bell peppers and celery. Watch Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead and FoodMatters and Food Inc.; Gerson Therapies; (Netflix Streaming) and Cut, Poison, Burn (free download). Even if you do nothing else start eating fresh live foods because they have living enzymes and are the best possible medicine! Read up on Raw Foodists and Vegans even if you just call it a diet after you have been faithful to the regieme for a month or two it tends to change your life and mind about what you can and will do for your health. Many blessings... Mardee
