    Congratulations on a job well done!

    and remember:
    get as close to vegan as you can,
    moderate exercise,
    lots of water,
    good vitamin supplements,
    more moderate exercise,
    and a few more vegetables.

      if you don't also make an effort to go at least 80% raw, on second thought, you can skip the vegan as long as you make a point of the raw. ;-D

    •  Yes, I'm going to try the veggies, but... (7+ / 0-)

      The diabetic diet is supposed to be higher in meats and proteins while the heart healthy diet says vegetables.

      I guess that I'm going to be a fish and vegetable guy now.

      •  Heart healthy...eat natural foods and fats (0+ / 0-)

        and you are okay with the heart healthy diet. It's the processed fats that are bad. If you eat lean meats, skinless chicken, etc. you'll do just fine. Spouse is pre-Type II and has high cholesterol. We went to lean meats, some fish (too expensive!), and just cut almost all the processed carbs out of his diet. 6 months later, every number is within normal including the cholesterol and diabetes monitoring.

        Also, moderation is a big thing. Hope this helps.

        John McCain and the Keating 5. John McCain and his lobbyists...then and now.

        •  Yes, the Dean Ornish Program looks good. (0+ / 0-)

          I won't be able to follow it completely, but I will adopt much of it.

          Thanks for the tip.

    •  My gratitude in return, potato. (0+ / 0-)

      It's weird how disappointed I am that I can't finish the battle.  Perhaps I shouldn't be, but I can't shake it.  I intend to try the vegetables.  Certainly not total vegan - I'm too carnivorous.  :0)
