This is my third Thanksgiving as a Type 2 diabetic. My trick for the meal is to always have a salad of field greens first. I will even bring my own salad if invited out for Thanksgiving.

That is a smart way to have a little of everything andputting it on a small plate to make you think your eating alot. I think I'm going to start using a smaller plate all the time…Debe

That what I did many years ago. I threw out my big plates and cups and replaced them with smaller ones. At first my family used to make fun of my plates and cups but with time, two of my sisters did the same time. They realized that this was going to help them with portion control and not gain weight.
