  • A very good video! I also am a diabetic 2, also I've taken meds all my life until 3 years ago! Now I monitor it by food, exercise, and taking my blood sugar. I keep my fat in the
    lower 20's. I keep my carbs as low as I can. I hope everyone is having a Wonderful &
    Blessed Wednesday! LYL! - 4/13/2016 1:55:23 PM
  • I am a type 2 diabetic which is controlled by weight and exercise. I try to watch what I eat but I have sugar cravings once in a while. I think the video gave me more thought as to what I can watch for especially when I go out to eat! - 3/18/2016 12:31:57 AM
  • It is harder to make good choices now that I am older. I also have little desire to cook. But I am trying! - 1/20/2016 10:39:42 PM
  • I'm a Type 2 diabetic, and I KNOW what to eat and what not to eat. But nobody will ever convince this sweet tooth that a fruit salad is as satisfying as a piece of red velvet cake. Not realistic. When you're diabetic, you just have to say NO. Period. - 12/1/2015 1:03:34 PM
  • Very informative video. - 10/28/2015 5:43:32 PM
  • Great Video! Really a good help on substitutions. - 9/11/2015 11:55:23 AM
  • i thought it was a terrible video....the woman gave a couple of helpful hints, but really did not steer him towards eating much better....victor, the male, said in the beginning of the film he was ready to make permanent changes and yet neither one really seemed intent on helping him do that.... - 9/8/2015 8:55:36 AM
  • Jeepers don't get me started on the old lady and her "low blood sugar". If I have anything I want to keep I pretty near have to hide it and or nail it to the wall. - 2/9/2015 8:50:43 PM

  • The video was a good reinforcement of what I have learned except for the carbs!! I agree with many of the comments about not mentioning the carbs. One of the things I have the most difficulty handling is the fresh baked rolls! - 6/28/2014 11:24:00 PM
  • Sadly, a fruit salad just doesn't give me the satisfaction that a piece of red velvet cake does. Never will. With my Type 2 diabetes, I have to think of all this differently; I have to think of refined sugar like an alcoholic does booze. It's tasty, it makes me feel good, but it's poison. - 6/20/2014 1:05:28 PM
  • I agree with FridaysMom2 (below) who mentioned Carbs. This video completely focuses on sugars, BUT all Carbs MUST be considered. For the Type 2 Diabetic, CARBS are KEY! Some good info in the video but I give it a "thumbs down" for no mention of CARBS! - 3/12/2014 10:11:40 AM
  • I am also a type II diabetic and also love sweets, but I have been budgeting them in my included snack and snack 2. I'm trying to wean myself off all refined sugar and flour products but I'm not there yet. I liked the Nutritionists advice about having some low sodium, lower fat soup before your lunch or dinner meal then you wouldn't be as hungry at the next meal, makes good sense to me. I'm going to plan to have soup before my meals at least a couple of days a week. - 2/28/2014 7:44:21 PM
  • As a type 2 diabetic, this information was helpful and useful for dining out. It gave practical suggestions for making the right food choices and still enjoying a tasty meal. - 1/21/2014 10:48:53 AM
