Diabetes management and weight loss go hand in hand. Most people with diabetes are overweight or obese, and, in fact, excessive weight is often an exacerbating factor in high blood sugar. Come join us if you have diabetes (I or II), or you need to lose some weight, or both. Diabetics, whether their blood glucose is controlled or not, should eat the same moderate and well balanced diet as everyone else. The main difference is that diabetics should spread carbohydrate consumption throughout the day. (Of course, diabetics also need to exercise, take any medicine they have been prescribed, reduce stress, etc.) Come to our diabetic - weight loss dinner meetings, make new friends, and move toward a healthier lifestyle.
