I, too, have been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. I am 71, and thankful that I have made it to this age before any problems started. It took care of both my parents with Type 2 Diabetes, therefore, I'm pretty used to the diet.
A great start, and for some people it will be extremely difficult, but NO EATING OUT! Unless you are eating at a healthy restaurant.
Next, NO prepackaged 'shortcut' meals. Make things from scratch. It's not difficult, and you know exactly what is going into your body.
You will be surprised at the difference this makes in blood sugar numbers, and weight. You will be able to eat more food when you are cooking from scratch than when you eat packaged or prepared foods that have all the 'bad' additives, and added sugar and carbohydrates included, with very little food substance.
