Is anyone here a diabetic?
Hello,

I am new to this site. I am a diabetic and need to lose 50 lbs. Is there anyone here that has suggestions for meal plans, etc.?

south Beach Diet
I hear that the South Beach Diet is great for diabetics. My son has a friend who is diabetic and that is what I follow when he is here and his mom said that is the best thing to do. I did do the South Beach diet myself and lost 20 lbs. I then got pregnant and then stopped it and never went back on it, which I really need to.

Please be careful
If you follow South Beach completely what it will tell you to do is take out all nutritious fruts and veggies (and all other carbs) and gradually add a few back.

This can be very dangerous to your blood sugar levels! Please ask your doctor first. What my doctor did was tell me to lower my carb intake to less than 200g a day and when I could get it that low without wanting to kill people then I could take it lower. The less carbs you eat (with more protien) the less hungry you feel- it's hard for the first couple of weeks though.

As for protien he had me eat at least 100g of lean protien a day to start- it's actually pretty hard to get that much protien in but you can do it. :)

Basically my starting diet was:

Calories- less than 2000
Carbs- less than 200g
Lean Protien- 100g
Fiber- 25g

and I wasn't supposed to really worry about anything else. Trust me, if you can manage to eat that much protien and fiber in one day without going over those carbs and calories your blood sugar levels off and the weight starts to drop.

re
I myself am a diabetic and I can say from my own experience that the problem of nutrition is actually a problem for me. I have increased weight, but I have not yet chosen a diet yet. This is not a simple matter. I already signed up for an endocrinologist’s consultation on walk-in-clinic-ny.com I was lucky that in NY it is very easy to find a good clinic within walking distance. I try not to rush into such important things as my own health.

Be Careful
Anything we eat or decide not to Eat is very serious Matter. It is not a good idea to ask from random people on Internet and change your diet accordingly. Being a diabetic you need to be extra Careful. If you are in New York, i would suggest to visit once Medical Clinic NY for best support.
