I have a question that I'm hoping you folks might be able to help with. I don't have diabetes, but my Dad just got diagnosed last week with type 2. I'm trying to help him figure out a meal plan, and we are both relatively unfamiliar with Diabetes. At the moment, I'm looking for suggestions on healthy meal plans for him. He's not overweight... about 5'11'', 175 - 180 lbs, and 56 years old. He's on a fixed income (say $200 a month for food), so cost is obviously a factor. And he also happens to be an extremely stubborn man... so dealing with these dietary changes is going to be a challenge for him. Most of the food he consumes is loaded in carbohydrates. He basically refuses to eat vegetables. And he loathes chicken. hwell: lol... I could really use some help in trying to find out what he can eat and portion sizes. Any suggestions???
