Weight loss and wheelchair and diabetes
I have rheumatoid arthritis so excise is pretty much out for me and I use a wheelchair.

Recently I was diagnosed with diabetes, that is early October. I was in hospital and put on a diabetic diet and have been following that ever since. I am losing weight all the time which is fantastic. The menu I follow was given by the dietician at the hospital.

I eat porridge and a soya natural yogurt for breakfast.

Lunch is oily fish and salad or soup, a main course of fish or lean meat, rice/potatoes/pasta or other starchy foods, bread and low fat cheese, a piece of fruit.

Dinner is similar to lunch except I have another plain soya yogurt instead of cheese.

I drink water or herbal teas (I am lactose intolerant.)

I find I am eating more than before!

With this I don't think of biscuits, cakes, chocolate or other sweets. I am allowed one treat a week like a small piece of pie, tart, or cake.

Never cut out carbohydrates they are important to give you long lasting sugars and keep your dextrose levels down.
