Track your blood sugar before and after you exercise. You will really notice how the exercise brings down your blood sugar.

Plant based diet

Eat more of a low GI plant based diet and reduce your intake of milk and other animal protiens and see what it does for you. I have more energy and way better blood glucose control.

Exercise Curbs Your Appetite

It's really true -- exercise, even just walking for 1/2 hour, really curbs your appetite. I get hungriest when I'm just sitting on my kazoo at night, watching tv. But when I got back from my walk this evening, I wasn't hungry at all. And exercise is so good for getting your BG down! emoticon

Split up portions / Snack drawer

I am not a diabetic, but I have a daughter whom is. (Type1) Use portion control by having things already divied out. Help stop temptation by having to get into the pantry to get snacks / make a designated drawer.

Tracking your foods

Use the new diabetes food tracker that Spark People is featuring. It's great for "seeing" what you're eating!

Working through Denial

Knowing that you have diabetes is one thing, but accepting and working through the times of denial is another. It is very important that you talk with your physician as well as your dietitian and learn all about diabetes and how it will affect you.
