Going lowfat is okay, but your body need some fat to stabilize your blood sugar level. What I would recommend is contacting the American Diabetes Association and get your hot little hands on their booklet called “Exchange Lists for Meal Planning” which is really helpful. My nutritionist when I said I was diabetic said that the way the pamphlet describes is the healthiest way to eat.
Don’t go on fad diets, make sure you drink your 8 glasses of water per day ( it’s really easy to get dehydrated) and try drinking before, during and after excersizing. I know, I usually go on and on, but that’s okay, most people ignore my ramblisngs anyway.
On a sadder note, my Peachfaced Lovebird Peaches died.
