I have been a diabetic since I was 7, I'm 19 now. I use an insulin pump and have been on one for 10 years…I am trying to start eating right… But I have taken advantage of having the insulin pump eating whatever I want. I need some tips on taking better care of myself and eating better?

We have to shift our thinking. McDonals, fast food, cheap eats, cakes, cookies, candy, all stuff any healthy person should be avoiding or eating alittle of. I still believe in my heart that if everyone ate like a diabetic we would have fewer heavy ppl in the world. I have no plans to be in a wheel chair, or in bad health in my old age. I have a family and I dont want them to go down the path I did so I teach them the right way of eating. Eating healthy is so important on so many levels. Why with all the work we do to keep our sugars under control, to loose weight do we fill it with chemicals, processed foods, and high carbs foods. Does it really make you feel that good that all your hard work should be made in vain? Am I wrong or should we love ourselves? Food will not win, Im bigger then it. I may have lost half my insides but Im healthier then Ive ever been. I feel good and the compliments I get are overwhelming. Sorry, Im not giving that up for fast food, or any junk.It basically boils down to a question. Do you want to live a long healthy life or do you want to not? What will you look like at 50, eating and the lack of caring you give yourself. Do you like that picture? You dont need tips you need to make a decision.

Wow you have been taking advantage of the insulin pump, I wonder if you are having problems putting on lbs. Usually when too many carbs are consumed with insulin from the outside, one tends to pack on the lbs.

My suggestion: Keep the carbohydrate intake low and the protein intake high.
