I have type 2 diabetes and went to see a dietician.
Go buy the <span style="font-weight: bold">2011 calorie fat and carbohydrate counter </span>book and go on a 2000 calorie 175 carbohydrate diet. I lost 7 lbs in 3 weeks.
3 meals eat whatever you want just 500 calories and 45 carbs each and 2 snacks 250 calories and 20 carbs each.
I eat what I want ... you just have to watch your portion sizes.
Well, sometimes you eat the bear, and sometimes, well, he eats you, so the Dude must abide!
