I am trying the Mediterranean diet. Been about a week but I am liking it. My wife is making a lot of tasty dishes. My red meat intake has gone down considerably!!

Howdy Rick. It is all about what works for you! What kind of results are you getting with regard to your Blood Glucose (BG) readings?

I am also taking Psyllium flakes ,Fish oil,and aplalipoic acid. Been on the diet 10 days. I am taking Metformin but hoping that is temporary

I had a 119 reading this morning. Sugars have been below 200 all week.
too early to tell whqt caused the better readings.

This I know my appetite and cravings have gone down.

It's a great diet, Rick, and I wish you the best! I've been off meds for a couple of years. I also take Biotin, Alpha Lipoic for BG control. I'm about to add some Psyllium though I haven't taken it in the past.
