Best diet to lose weight and get your diabetes Type 2 (and possibly Type 1) under some sort of control is to go for a No Carbs Diet:

I eat cooked sliced Beef from my Deli and leafy greens, Brussels Sprouts and Mushrooms, I drink water laced with Sugar Free Cordial to taste and I don't drink alcohol or smoke.

On this diet, you will lose weight and you will have your Diabetes Type 2 under better control, along with the medication prescribed to you by your doctor.

It's not much fun, but I have a choice over living to my later years (73 now) in some sort of health, while still on tablets and no injections yet.

As opposed to complications, which I personally can do without for as long as possible.

Best Wishes,

Rich777

If you drink plain water after about two weeks your taste buds will adjust to taste other things better.

I did this four decades ago with sugar in coffee. Ran out of sugar at work. When it returned put my usual half tea spoon of sugar in the coffee. Almost spat the coffee across the room. Never had sugar in coffee since.

Well, I see my salt water cure got nobbled.

Pity about that.

Guess you will all have to take your chances if you get a virus, any virus - shrug.

I could have saved each and every one of you, but not to be.

Better luck next time.

Over and out

I have it and I take a different view, yes I take my medication, but I don't deny myself from the things I love, it's just a case of those which are not recommended, is if you like then everything in moderation. I'm 70 I could walk across the road today and get wiped out, Hell it's called life, it's ment to be lived no puritan lifestyle for me.

 As someone who has had Type 2 diabetes I am disappointed with your attitude. I beat it by losing weight watching what you eat and exercise. I have been free of type 2 for over 7 years. My diet was not puritan, but now I eat virtually everything but in moderation. However I do read the product labels and avoid products with high sugar and fat content.

We don't have diabetes. But nevertheless we try to eat reasonably and cook most of our food. Recently we had some visitors stay with us who we met traveling around Australia. They left some jars and cans of food as they couldn't take them back to Europe.

We used a jar of tomato sauce for spaghetti. It was sickly sweet, we struggled to eat it. It had 15% sugar in it. We normally use fresh tomatoes, it's not difficult, and sometimes bulk them up we a bottle of 100% tomato puree with no preservatives and no acidity regulator.

The problem we have, we can't really eat anything out of a jar or can anymore as all this processed food is far too sweet for our taste.

The same goes for pre packaged muesli. It is so sweet it's horrible. So we make our own from the ingredients we like. 

It does take a few weeks to change your taste from all the hidden sugar, but bare with it and you will start enjoying the low sugar taste.

If you buy a hamburger ask for it without sause. After the third hamburger you will enjoy the new taste and actually taste the ingredients which are actually healthy. It's the sauce which is full of sugar and salt, so don't have it.

Well done Umpie1.

I beat it too. I stopped eating potatoes and cut way back on other carbohydrates, sugar and salt, and increased exercise by walking a lot more.

Like walking around 4 to 5 kilometers 4 or 5 days a week. I lost 32 kilos.

I've been clear for over 3 years now.

I still have a beer and/or a red wine if I want , but don't go overboard

if you have diabetes, you dont ever lose it you ca only ever control it. Dependent on the degree of your body not producing enough insulin it can be controlled by medication or diet

Hi,

I'm 73 and I started this string Diabetes Type 2.

I've had Diabetes for the past 20 odd years and I'm still on tablets (Metformin) which is also supposed to slow down the aging process, which is probably why I appear to be much younger than my years, but I stay out of the sun and have done for many years, since I saw what skin cancer can do and how easy it is to get it, what with the ozone layer being non existent over Aussie, so far as I am aware.

Cutting out Carbs, was the suggestion of my Diabetes Doctor and it was easy enough for me to do - I do eat grapes - and the daily apple to keep the doctor away.

I try to avoid tomatoes, because years ago, I used to eat lots of tomatoes, got kidney stones frequently and was told that was why and I've not had a kidney stone now for about 30 years, thank goodness.

I also started a post which got nobbled for flu, cold and cornavirus cure which got nobbled really quickly, which is a great shame, because it is really easy to kill off the virus from what everyone has in their larder, but, if anyone wants the blurb, better contact me directly and I'll tell you what to do - I've been doing it since 1995 without ever getting a cold and I don't have the flu injection ever. Your e-mail address please.

The knockers nailed me on this, as they always do, which is silly, because it should be up to the individual to decide what they will or won't do for themselves and not a person who dominates any suggestions made and kills them off real quick, because they as individuals, don't agree with the suggestion I made.

What is really silly is that my cure actually works 100% of the time, with little discomfort. Incubation = disinfection = cure.

Was my life, I would want to make that choice for myself, not have someone else knock down what could be good advice to save me from an early death, from a horrid disease, especially if I was in a motor home in the outback of Australia, with no help available and over 56 years of age - but that's me - I'm 73 because I found ways to keep alive without going to my doctor, if there is any other choice open to me.

I use handkerchiefs - "Coughs and sneezes spread diseases, trap your germs in your handkerchief" funny how they have gone out of fashion and people sneeze and cough without regarding anybody else around them now.

I should add that on my diet I walk daily, but I am a couch potato and I don't walk anywhere if I can avoid it.
I've lost weight on my diet, by not exercising at all.
As a lst resort, I will walk only if I have to, when my Diabetes Type 2 starts to spiral upwards.
I have Psoriasis on my hands and underneath my feet and I have a medical cure for that, if anyone is interested, just ask here.
I went to a specialist recently and he prescribed a daily tablet and my Diabetes blood sugar readings went up like a lift - tablets daily for life probably.
Knocked the tablets on the head sharpish and my Diabetes readings dropped back to where they were before, pretty much Duh!!

I have been type 1 Diabetic for just over 50 years and agree with you, great call Blaze.

With respect Blaze and Paul
When you "think" you speculate, but I don't speculate, I know for a fact that everything I have said here is truthful and they work and that for me, it is so.

The Diabetes you mention and refer to is Diabetes Type 1 which is a completely different disease to Diabetic Type 2, which I have.

Type 1 are Insulin dependent, because their liver does not produce the insulin their liver needs to function and do what it does.

Type 2 are Diabetics, because of lifestyle and the desire to eat bad things, drink sugar based things like booze, alcohol and carbohydrates and as I understand things, in Type 2 the red blood cells carry sugar and that leads to long term complications, if it is not addressed, in some people, but not everyone, by partner is hugely obese and eats what she like and is not a diabetic, whereas I eat a "no carb" diet, which frankly is bloody horrid and I am.

What you like or don't like has no bearing on what I know for a fact is the truth and works in fact my Diabetes Doctor, who I see every 3 months, recommended a no carb diet, which worked wonders for me and as long as I can avoid the needle, I shall continue to do so, for as long as possible - and nice person that I am, I just wanted to share fact rather than speculation with anyone interested in trying it out for themselves.

Paul has been a Diabetic Type 1 for over 50 years. I have been a Diabetic Type 2 for 20 years. Bonus, I am not a Type 1 - thank goodness for THAT!!

I am not concerned with Type 1 Diabetics and my posts, if you read them are for and about Diabetes Type 2 which, as I have discussed above, is a completely different fish altogether, however, there is no reason why Type 1 diabetics don't switch to a no carb diet, in the hope that it might have some affect on their Diabetes, but perhaps not - shrug.

I have had "bad" Psoriasis for upwards of 20 years on my hands and underneath my feet and while my hands are clear now, my feet are a work in progress and Specialists have provided me with a specific cream and tablets and if anyone wants more info, they can ask me and I will be happy to provide the info I've got and save them Specialists fees and the inconvenience of trying to make appointments which might conflict with their lifestyles, especially if they are travelling.

With regards to Flu, Colds and coronavirus viruses. I know for a fact, my cure works. It is not speculation, but fact.

The current carry on about Coronavirus is about money and selling papers and other things, through fear and those who generate that fear, do so on the backs of the poor people and get ever richer, by result and a quick simple easy cure, is the last thing anyone wants, a bit like Gina Reinhardt wants to keep mining Iron Ore without regards to the climate, the minuscule Royalties she pays, etc - but lets face it, how much money is enough when will she say she has enough and does not want any more?

Never?

Does she have enough money to live the remainder of her life without needing more?

I started off with 1 million at the end of 2012 and after I had purchased a home, 3 cars and everything I wanted to be happy in retirement, I simply have no use for the excess that will keep me secure and happy for the remainder of my life.

So, for anyone who "thinks" you are basing your thoughts on speculation and not to my way of thinking, facts, proven facts is what matters and speculation is an exercise in futility, after all, it is only in the past 120 years, we have learned to fly, created trains, cars, space ships, submarines gone to the moon, have computers we can carry around, mobile phones and goodness knows what from people who experimented and knew - against those who did not want change and speculated that whatever the inventors created, would never work, but thank goodness, nobody paid the speculators any attention and we are where we are now, because of them.

I don't personally know either of you from a bar of soap and to be honest, I care less.

I don't frankly care if anyone takes my advice or not, or whether this page is deleted or not, I'm not about speculation or image, or what people think of me - I am just providing people who want to read what I say with FACT and if they take my information on board, or not, is their choice, not yours or mine and they like you, have a choice about Coronavirus, for example, whether they want to do nothing and potentially die, before, during or after getting it, or not - but you can be sure of one thing, I won't ever get any airborne virus, irrespective of whatever it is and I personally would like to save some of you, especially if you have very young kids or over 56 years of age, as we are.

Otherwise, I can't see what you "think" has anything to do with anything and is irrelevant and it will be on your heads, if you get my above posts deleted , I don't care, either way, because the advice I give, all of the advice, is based on FACT and you have taken away each other persons opportunity of choice, based on your own warped perspectives, about Type 1 Diabetes, which HAS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with the above.........

You are Type 1 Diabetics, I am a Type 2 Diabetic and as I understand things, my liver is functioning as it should and I don't need insulin and I won't ever be a Type 1 Diabetic like you are, so why would my above blurb be about a subject which does not interest me and which I know nothing about?

I would be much happier if I was not a Type 2 Diabetic, like my partner, but I don't have a choice in that, but any day of the week, I'd rather be a Type 2 Diabetic than a Type 1 (shudder). Good luck with that, both of you.

Hey Blaze,
I went to your blog and saw the last time it was updated was in 2011 - photos were interesting, how about updating it to 2020?

again with respect
I am type 2 diabetic
yes it has always been diet control but as the body has produced less insulin other methods have to be used
medication then medication along with insulin injection which have slowly been increased over the years
it is a insidious disease, not to be made light of

Rich777 In the other thread mods explained why your comment on Coronavirus was deleted along with others. Mids also have a reason and a hope you understand mention. So it would be better to take it up with them direct and reduce the frothing- yes? Tony

Richard, it is good that you have found a way that works for you to control your diabetes and hold colds and flu as bay.

However, comments such as those you have made above are why health advice on a caravan forum is suspect. The Pancreas makes the insulin, not the liver! Some of your statements such as that one are not facts. You have no cure for the coronavirus, because I suspect at present you haven't been exposed to it. On that basis, I also have a "cure" for coronavirus, because I don't have it either. So just do nothing! 

I don't think anyone doubts your sincerity and desire to help people. They just doubt that you have the required knowledge to state categorically that your "cures" work for all with the same problems. It is because of that your salt water cure thread was closed.

Hi all,
I think I will close this now, as I do not want misinformation to be spread about serious medical conditions.  Although we encourage people to share their experiences about their travels and about their health, it is important that everyone consult a medical professional regarding the causes and cures for conditions. Thanks for your understanding.
