Hello Old Trucker and welcome to buzz.

I have several friends who are challenged with type 2 diabetes and
trying to keep their weight down. I do know that two of my friends,
are doing more exercising and adjustments to their eating habits.

This will be a good thread to follow, I am interested in it...

Hi Old Trucker and welcome
I suffer with type 2 and have done for a while, never had any weight issues so guess I'm lucky. Peripheral neuropathy is the big problem I have.....blood sugar levels are mostly kept within the "normal" range. I am on insulin...which on Toujeo (insulin glargine) is just one injection a day instead of the three previously.
A good diabetic nurse is your best bet imo.
All the best to you...keep on trucking! smile.png

my mom was diagnosed type 2

we learned of a middle eastern thing that said to give up all meats and dairy products for 1 month and the system should reset.
with nothing to loose..
we gave it a try.
it admittedly took some meal planning to go vegan for a month.
but there is a surprising number of vegan things we already ate anyway.

and it worked !!
she was diabetes free and remained so for her remaining years;
even after she resumed her regular meals that including meat **after the 1 month period.

might be worth a shot ?

Have been type 2 Diabetic for a number of years and have been looking at my diet and changing the type of foods I eat, in order to get my weight down and keep it down. It's not really about losing the weight, it's more about keeping it off as your weight comes down. Have done the usual thing of doing web searches, what videos on YouTube and reading books and having some recipe books etc., which have all helped. The other thing that needs to be considered when it comes to the meals being eaten is the portion sizes. That is what has given me the most success in keeping the weight off. Whatever foods you end up eating, reducing the amount of carbohydrate in you diet is paramount. It is not practical to totally eliminate carbohydrates from the diet, but the more fibre or roughage you can add into your diet, then this slows down the rate at which your body absorbs the carbohydrate, so you can reduce the rate of sugar going into the blood, so you get a lower blood sugar spike.
