Just started three days ago. I am looking for meal plans that are designed for diabetics that will help me loose weight but also decrease

my A1C's. I'm also looking for a Buddy that has a similar situation...or not. Encouragement in any form is awesome!

Welcome to the forum SlimDave.  My wife is a type 2 diabetic.  We haven't done anything special other than change to whole grains and watch what we are eating.   Her sugar level has went from the high 200's to low to middle 100s in 4 weeks.

Hi SlimDave67,

I just officially started today! So far I haven't seen any of these meals being too horrible for us diabetics. I'm going off of the recipe cards in the 7-day box before I start the 21-day challenge. Of course, as our doctors tell us, it's all about moderation in everything....I'm just hoping that the meals are exciting enough that I don't find myself getting kicked out of a buffet...lol

Keep us up to date on how your levels are doing, and I'll do the same!!

Good luck buddy,

Kim (not so slim)74.

Currently tapering off my meds down from Glipizide 10 to a hybrid 5mg that me and my doctor created using a regular 2.5 and a sustained released 2.5. Dawn phenomenon has me with a morning high number mostly due to my getting congested when I lie down. Have gotten to this point my eating 90%protein and slow carbs and minimal fast carbs. trying to lose 15 pounds between now and November when I see the endo again- the next bench mark I need to meet before I decide if I want to continue at the 5 mg for a bit longer or go down to 2.5. Activating the muscles with weight training has been key for me as active muscles play an major role in normal glucose maintenance.
