Hey everyone I recently became a vegan and my life is really changing. I was a meat eating BBQ loving monster. Still love it all but just don't eat it.
It all began in October 2014 when my Doctor told me I had to lose weight, after weighing in at 301lbs. Well like so many overweight individuals I have tried every diet fad out there. Some of which actually worked. But sticking with them never was something I could harness.
On 10/16/14 I read a book…yes read a book. By Dr. Joel Furhman entitled ' The End of Diabetes The Eat to Live Plan'. He wrote about being able to cut your insulin intake way back if not completely be free of insulin in 6 months to a year. I have been eating this way going oin 3 months and my Meal time insulin has gone from 20 to 9 before each meal. And my long lasting has gone from 50 to 40. I even found a tofu turkey for Thanksgiving. Not bad at all. I eat a lot of kale and other greens. I love cooking up greens now with a little spice or some fresh peppers and onions. Plus there are all kinds of meat substitutes out there. Just have to make sure they are vegan not just vegitarian. I will keep you posted on my progress. By the way I am type 2. The book claims type 1 diabetics will never be completely insulin free but will cut it way back.
Im not here to sell you a book or push my life style on anyone. Just letting you know if you are at witts end with your disease then you may want to give it a try. Good luck to all. Dave
