Hello I am 30 years old and I am a type 2 diabetic and just recently diagnosed on Insulin. I have gotten used to it so far so thats good. I have to watch what I eat everyday the carbs and sugars and the calories also. I make sure that I eat lots of fruits and veggies and stay away from dried fruit and juice and chips and pop and anything like that. I drink plenty of water. The way I find myself maintaining my weight is walking and exercising. I walk for about 120 mins thats about 3.15 miles and I do that everyday when its nice out or I do the treadmill I do about 50 to 60 mins on it. 3 mile also. And I have just recently started weight lifting and doing sit ups and skipping. Love it!!!!! Gonna keep at that. Well because diabetes is a big part of my life and I try so hard to keep healthy and keep my sugars in check and etc its a lot I talk about so. When you talk to me I will be talking about that and plus if you have diabetes in common I would love to hear your story and meet people with diabetes and who take insulin also. So if you want to reach out and talk to me feel free to so. And I am also seeing a Diabetes Team who has helped me with everything with being on insulin and etc that they are just great and love having them on my side/team. I also see a specialist. My goal is to loose 6 more pounds to get to my goal weight but then loose some more for my height(5'0)

Kudos to you for joining us here on the Raw Foodies Team. This will be one of the best decisions you have ever made. Sparkers come here and join this great team for a multitude of reasons. They may be curious about the health benefits of Raw Food and join to learn all about eating Raw. Many join for the weight loss. Many join the Team for a Detox. There are a great many people who do the Raw Food Diet as a Detox but then they realize how alive they feel and how the pounds melted away so effortlessly they decide to continue to eat this way. There are others who will join this Team for the health benefits of a Raw Food Diet. A diet based on raw food can reverse diabetes, arthritis (I personally have experienced this. I went off all of my arthritis meds after only a few weeks), heart disease, cancer (that is how I became involved with the Raw Food Diet when my sister was diagnosed with Lymphoma), eliminates migraines, the list goes on and on.
So join us and learn how to make the transition from SAD (Standard American Diet) to a healthy Raw Food Diet. You will be happy you did!
