Thanks for the info.
As for the Beans, I had read that fresh cooked dried beans were okay for diabetics. I know the carbs are lower than canned ones. I've been cooking a pot and eating on them a bit for several days. Usually Beans, Greens and a sliced tomato for a meal.
I am not on medication and my Internal Medicine doctor doesnt think I need to be yet. That's why he told me to...
1) Lose Weight
2) Exercise Everyday
and then will see me in mid-August for another blood workup.
I have NO DESIRE to be on medication for the disease and will do everything to avoid it. I really feel that if I lose and extensive amount of weight and become more active through exercise, the glucose problems will probably be non-existent.
On a side note...
I'm beginning some of the Herbalife supplements next week. about 20 years ago, when I was a teenager, I was also over-weight. I lost over 160 pounds on Herbalife and felt great, so I'm going to do the vitamins and supplements again. Anything to get healthy
