After being a medic in the military for 30+ years, it didn't come as a surprise when my Dr. told me "Chris, you have Type 2 Diabetes. Your A1C isn't where it should be." So now I need to make some lifestyle changes especially with my diet and I have
to take some meds.
SO, now what do I need to do. I've done diabetic teaching for a long time at least from the physical aspects of the disease, how to check blood surgar, foot care, etc. But I didn't know what I had to do for diet. First loose weight. I was 317 lb when the
doc told me. I've dropped about 20 lbs so far but I'm afraid it won't stay off this time any better than it did last time I lost 100 lbs. But I know I've got to change.
First is diet, I had to go to classes, I've been to one so far but it didn't tell me all I needed to know, I hope the next one is better. It is nice they let me out of the blood sugar testing and a few other parts and let me focus on the diet.
Allrecipes new Menu section is really going to help me get started with menu planning. It's already given me a number of ideas and meal plans to learn from and with all of the recipes on Allrecipes.com it should make things a lot easier. So thank you allrecipes
in advance for your help.
