Hi, BB. I have Type 2 too. Did your doc put you on meds? Do you have access through your health insurance to a diabetes educator and/or nutritionist. that would be a good place to start. You might also want to go to the library and get some books on type 2 diabetes. It's difficult dieting with diabetes because you do have to eat to keep your blood sugar stable. Any kind of low calorie, reduced carb diet is fine Even weight watchers is okay except maybe eat less carbs than they allow. Come join us on the Dieting with Diabetes thread. We want to hear how you're doing.
