Firstly there are differences between Type 1 and Type 2
Diabetics, as you know.

Although Type 1's can eat a lot of foods that they
can cover sugar-wise with Insulin, that doesn't mean
that they should be eating a lot it.

Type 2's have a harder time since they have to
be more physical and eat healthier foods just to try and
keep their sugars down without drugs. Small portions are

I am a Type 1 and I do eat mostly what I want since I
can counteract it with a shot of Insulin. The
important fact is though, I eat only small portions. I
also eat 4 times a day. I do not low carb but I will
be looking into a few meals there. I do exercise twice
a day for 30 minutes each time to get the heart pumping.
So in all I use less Insulin.

Drinking your 8-10 glasses of water is also important for
getting rid of some of the sugar in your system, to help
flush the kidneys, to keep a person's cells working properly,
to keep a Person hydrated, etc.
