WELCOME TO DIABETIC ENJOYING FOOD

I have chosen this name for this blog because it truly states my story. I am a type II diabetic who most certainly enjoys food. When I was diagnosed with diabetes several years ago, my blood sugar level was over 400. With some oral medications, a lot of research and some trial and error, I have found that unlike my ancestors I truly can continue to enjoy food. I hope this blog will help you to also enjoy food and be healthy. Some recipes are my originals and some I have collected.

MINT FOR WEIGHT LOSS

Would you believe researchers at a West Virginia university say the scent of mint is an appetite suppressant! In their research, people who chewed a piece of minty gum or applied a mint-scented lotion when they had an urge to snack throughout the day, consumed around 3,000 calories less per week. Struggling with weight or snacking? Why not try it? What have you got to lose??? 3000 less calories per week is almost a pound of weight loss per week.
