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.

I have been Type 1 for nearly 25 years, I am a woman aged 50 and am currently on Humulin s pre meal and Insulatard pre bed,was previously on novorapid and lantus but got it changed as sugar levels were awful!My last HBA1C was 8.The last 2 years have been very difficult to cope with controling high blood sugars and continous weight gain despite trying every diet under the sun,that includes low carb,slim fast,atkins you name it ive tried it but i have never been able to achieve more than a few pounds loss and then my enthuisiasm wanes and then my love of food takes over and beats me every time as I have very little willpower and a family who are diet sabatours.hehe.My problem is I have the knowledge and know exactly what i should and shouldnt be eating and what exercise i should be doing and I try to do it all but I just cant maintain it for long enough to achieve the 3stone loss I dream of.I am reaching the point now where I feel it is becoming an impossible dream and that diabetes is finaly after all these years beating me as I dont feel in control anymore,its just getting harder and harder.I am generaly a positive happy person but am feeling so tired of it all,and despair of ever feeling fit and healthy and motivated again.Would welcome any thoughts or inspiration from anyone who understands how ime feeling
    Many thanks

    Re: TYPE 1 WHO JUST CANT LOOSE WEIGHT
    Hi binney,
    I'm a type 1 also and find it really hard to lose weight. I'll do the whole cut the calories and up the exercise routine but the pounds do not go easily. Any of my friends try the same thing and they lose three-four pounds a week. I then get disheartened and stop. It's incredibly frustrating.
    I've had my thyroid etc checked and everything was normal. My doctor keeps telling me it's the insulin that's causing this. I suffered from an eating disorder when I was younger and know all to well the effects of stopping your insulin for the sake of being slim!
    I find the only way that I can lose weight is to really restrict the number of calories I'm having (within reason) and exercise like crazy. Even then it is slow and the better my diabwtes control the harder it is!
    All I can say is stick at it. It may take a while bit it will happen. Also try to find a diet that isn't too hardcore so it's easier to stick to long term. Once the weight does start to come off I fond that it does so quite steadily - albeit at a slow rate!
    Take care and good luck!
