Diabetes now affects more than 25 million Americans and sad to say I am one of them. And one of my big mistakes over the years was my diet although I did not know it at the time. Please be aware that small changes in your diet and lifestyle can reduce your risk of developing diabetes by up to 83%. There are many posts on this blog to guide you. And I have a whole blog dedicated to recipes for diabetics. You can check out that blog by clicking here http://diabeticenjoyingfood.blogspot.com If you aren't currently eating a healthy diet, start making changes to do so. Most changes are minor and can be accomplished without giving up favorite foods. One of the most important and easy things you can do is portion control!
