How many of you have went to the doctor for your yearly check-up and was
told that your A1C, Cholesterol, and things were high and you need to go on
prescription meds to reduce them?
I recently went to the doctor and I was told these things. My response was
okay they are high before putting me on meds that have a dozen or so side effects
let's try something a little less invasive like changing my diet, maybe introducing
some kind of physical activity like walking more than half a block.
So I turned to google and food some websites that show me what I should eat for being a diabetic.
At lunch today I ate 7 carbs, but it was packed with protein, fiber, and flavors.
Yes I know I am going to have to give up my Dr. Pepper and my Coke but it's okay I have given them up before.
I don't eat sweets really, so that should be easy enough. What do I eat you may be asking?
Chex mix yes I know I will have to limit how much I eat I won't be able to eat a half bag at night while binge-watching NCIS New Orleans.
Okay So I will have to drink more water and unsweet tea I can do that as well.
SO you ask what is your problem then? well, it's the physical activity part that bugs me why you ask?
Because I hate doing things alone. It's not having a great support system at home that encourages me to get up and move...
How many of you can relate to what I am saying? Do you have a great support system for coming off drugs? Losing weight? Having bad thoughts? Getting away from your addiction?
so good websites to check out for foods https://www.foodnetwork.com/topics/diabetes-friendly
