The 2-day Diabetes Diet: What To Eat To Lose Weight

For folks with diabetes, weight loss is a natural form of “medication.” Reams of research prove that losing even just a few pounds is an effective way to control blood sugar or reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes in the first place. But in an ironic twist, losing weight may be more difficult if you have type 2 diabetes. And the reason isn’t just a lack of willpower. Too often, diet plans don’t work for people with diabetes because the metabolism changes associated with blood sugar problems may increase appetite, slow down fat burning, and encourage fat storage. Now breakthrough research has revealed a better way for people to lose weight and reduce insulin resistance. The secret is a concept called intermittent fasting. British researchers created this revolutionary new diet, which strictly limits caloric intake for two days of the week but permits larger portions for the remainder. Women who followed the plan lost almost twice as much fat as those who restricted calories every day. Within three months, participants reduced insulin resistance by 25 percent more on nonfast days and inflammation by 8 percent more than people who dieted continuously.

    My boyfriend was diagnosed with Type 1 when he was 19. He was an idiot and decided to not take care of himself. He's 26 and just recently started taking his insulin on a normal basis. His A1C is like, 12 or something, down from 15 when I met him last year. He has a ridiculous appetite and can put down tons of food but he doesn't gain any weight. He's about 6 foot and weighs 140 and can't seem to get any fatter than that. Is there anything he can do to gain weight? He's really self-conscious about it.

    Skinny as fuck diabetic reporting in. To gain weight, he needs to keep his blood sugars low like in the 6-7 range A1C. I'm 6'2", 175 lbs and a hard gainer. If it wasn't for the gym (1,000s of hours lifting) I'd probably weigh 150 lbs.

    I think you should be more frustrated with him for having the high A1C's.
    His medical bills and health are not going to be to bright looking if he doesn't lower that A1C.
    But, the gym is a great thing for diabetics, once they figure out how the exercise changes their blood sugars (working out will lower your blood sugar).
