Sample Meal Schedule For Type 2 Diabetics

Recently at a routine check-up, my doctor wanted to test me for Type II Diabetes. Ugh, I knew this was coming. My weight has increased by almost 40 pounds since 2000.
When she received the results, she told me I might as well consider that I have it, since whatever measure they use for the baseline, mine was only .1 away, or something like that. I tend not to pay attention to things I don't want to hear about my health, which is why my sweetheart ALWAYS takes me everywhere. He says one of us should know what's going on with me. I subscribe to a newsletter and there are always tips on Type II in it.
When Mr. Glen Oaks saw this he said that this is basically a good format for anyone wishing to lose or maintain a healthy weight, veggies,fruits,fiber and protein. He used to be really into working out and eating right (we're both slipping). But like anything, the key is moderation. On a nine inch dinner plate, 1/2 should be full of vegetables, 1/4 protein (3-4oz. meat) and rice, potato, etc., whole grain dinner roll.
Believe me, this takes a lot of willpower. Especially someone like me who will break open a bag of Pecan Sandies and eat at least 1/2 of the package. And some foods take a while
to try and develop a taste for, or in certain combinations. I by no means am offering medical advise or dietary advice, I thought some people might benefit from this and the web source:
