Something to consider: Low fat Vegan eating style

I would not be surprised if many here also have the fun of Type II adult onset diabetes,
Despite medication (tryjardy) I have been having issued controlling mine and my doctor gave me this book as a step before moving to insulin https://www.amazon.com/Neal-Barnards...s=books&sr=1-1

I have had good results with both losing weight and controlling blood sugar

the hardest part for me is not vegan, but keeping it low fat (avocados are considered too fat)

I don't do a lot of the fake cheese and meats as they are often very processed and high fat

I also have found an instapot helpful fore cooking beans and brown rice

Also of interest, especially the impact of leafy greens and berries on preventing Alzheimer's https://www.cnn.com/2023/03/08/healt...ess/index.html

I'm going to order that book. I need to make more changes because my A1C is too high and the doctor is talking about diabetes. I already eat a lot of berries and leafy greens but what I have been doing has not worked. The only way I can lose weight is calorie counting. Good luck with your diet journey.

Eliminate booze, eliminate sweets, and follow the Pritikin Plan of at least 8 servings of fruits and veggies/day. Its working thus far for me.
