There’s the Atkins – it was developed for diabetes and to prevent diabetes. If you already have the diabetes, get a used copy of “Diabetic Revolution” off of Amazon. Atkins other book is “New Diet Revolution” – but the diabetic book might have more tips.

It is the oddest thing in the world that diabetic diets usually have you eating sugars… On Atkins, you don’t do this anymore. No sugars, very few carbs at all. So that your blood sugar levels remain constant – we hope – and that would actually be the end to diabetes.

Hard to know what will actually control you diabetes – but diet is the best place to start certainly. Atkins is a good diet – good food – people lose weight on it very well.…
