    Two main components:
    Lose lots of weight if you’re overweight/ obese, for which you need to be on a strict hypocaloric diet, e.g. only having 2lbs of non starchy veggies, stir fried or in a soup. This will fill your stomach so you won’t go hungry. No sugar, no snacks, no carbs, no fat, very little fish/meat, no soft drinks or fruit juices, just (carbonated) water, no alcohol. From the Newcastle MRI Center Reversing Type 2 Diabetes. Obese participants losing a mean of 15% = 15 kg of body weight reversed their diabetes if they hadn’t had their diabetes for too long a time, and had lost their belly fat from their pancreas and liver thus restoring their function Very Low-Calorie Diet and 6 Months of Weight Stability in Type 2 Diabetes: Pathophysiological Changes in Responders and Nonresponders. Of the participants after six months 40% were cured of their diabetes.

    Regularly exercise since this will lower your insulin resistance, at least 150 to 300 minutes of moderate intensity exercise a week, divided over multiple days of the week or just in one session a percweek, or 75 minutes of intensive exercise a week. A bout of exercise will translocate (move) GLUT 4 glucose transporters to the cell membrane so it can bind more glucose and transport it into the cell thus lowering blood glucose levels Exercise, glucose transport, and insulin sensitivity. The effect lasts one to three days after the exercise The impact of brief high-intensity exercise on blood glucose levels

    If after seriously losing weight your blood sugars are still too high, then you belong to the 60% who didn’t do well on weight loss to reverse type II diabetes, and will need antidiabetic meds, preferably metformin which lowers mortality, also in non diabetics, a TAME trial exploring this very important issue is ongoing.

    Well, you have already received good answers to your question and as you probably have realised, it's all about controlling your carb and fat intake and having a balanced meals at frequent intervals. Like someone mentioned, taking three main meals and light snacks in between.
    However, the biggest challenge that I have seen is of knowing what to eat, when to eat and how much to eat. You need to keep track of your eating habits and ensure that you are having the right amount of carb, fat, protein and fibre. But measuring all of that on a regular basis is a challenge as there's no easy way that exists for you to keep track of your daily nutrient intake.
    We have developed a mobile app called diabeteazy specific for people with diabetes to address that very challenge. It allows you to keep track of all that you need to - your blood sugar, weight, food, activity andedication - all at one place. We have developed a unique food algorithm that allows you to see the impact of your eating habits in the way of meal scores and smilies and also tells you if you are having a balanced intake of carb, fat, protien and fibre by giving you red, amber, green indicators.
    You may download diabeteazy by following links given below - it also includes dietitian consults and app based assistance for modification of life style and diet management.

    My father in law has diabetes for the past two decades. 2 years ago he was taking about 90 units of insulin every day. His fading sugar was still around 200 on most days. He was tired, irritable and hopeless.
    Then we came across Reversing Diabetes program of Dr Pramod Tripathi. By changing diet to Dr Pramod's recommendations my father in law is off insulin injection, maintains a fasting blood sugar around 110-120, is so energetic that he started zumba classes & he has never been happier.
    Basic tips are - stop processed foods. Take variety of grains, not just wheat & rice. Start the day with 1-2 glasses of green smoothie. And go vegan. No milk or milk product of any kind.
    Eat lots of vegetables and eat till you are full. A green smoothie is made by juicing together greens like spinach and mint, with peeled cucumber & tomato. Add 1-2 glasses of water and any spice you like. It tastes yum with lime, ginger, cinnamon powder, black salt and pepper.
