Recipe: Type II Diabetic Diet

Several years ago, I ran across this diet in a natural healing book. I can't remember the name of the book to give credit. I decided to follow it due to the fact that I had Type II Diabetes, along with Congested Heart Failure. I followed it pretty faithfully and lost 40 pounds that I never gained back. I went off the diet for several years and now recently my sister asked for a copy and we are trying it together. 
It is not easy and is not for everyone. You may need to adjust to your needs - NOT wants and desires. Those are the things that get us into trouble.
Stock up on Sugar free Jello. It will become your best friend. I love black Cherry. When you make it, pour into individual serving containers.
Boil some eggs and keep a bowl in the fridge. Great for instant protein when you are running behind with breakfast or other meals.
As with all diets, consult with your doctor. They know what is best for you.
