Thanks for the ideas Carol. Keep it simple is one I look for as I try to adapt my eating habits. Coming from a very sedentary lifestyle means that possible changes I can make are vast numerous so simple, consistent plans seem to be crucial for my long term success

Just read a diaTribe article on overview of diabetes and prediabetes diets which provided a very quick reference on the various diets

I like this idea. Now to see if I can do it. The posting on leptin in this thread seems gives me an excellent jumping off point. Also Nick and Dan Buettner have some interesting videos on "Blue Zones" which are providing me with an overarching framework for my healthy lifestyle aspirations

I like your philosophy of life very much! I live by myself as well so need to work at keeping involved with others. I meet for coffee every Thursday morning with other guys my age in a seniors residence (not my home) where they supply the coffee and some baking free of charge. I have learned that seniors residences with personal services are a much better option than I thought and that is constantly changing for the better. I have a idea floating around in head about working with other seniors to promote enjoyment of life including being an active part of a community which seniors residences lend themselves to very well

Intriguing idea. I will watch for that occurring. Do you have references for this idea?

Just read your post and will be following up on leptin. Your post caused me to rejoice about this Mayo Clinc resource along with the many others I can access on the internet. Sure it can be confusing and overwhelming at times but oh so useful compared to other options. Thank you and encouraging that you are having such success

I am a Type 2 diabetic on Metformin, short and long acting insulin currently working on improving my lifestyle including nutrition, physical activity and mindset. I notice “intuitive eating” in the literature which talks about eating when hungry (physiologically not emotionally) and stopping when full. For the latter I have even read about stopping at 80% full! (Is it even possible for anyone to know when they are 80% full?) I also recall reading that diabetes can affect our stomachs ability to sense when it is full, possibly due to neuropathy. I like the idea of intuitive eating but maybe I need to stick with other methods such as portions or tracking. Does anyone have any information on the ability of people with diabetes being able to tell when they are full?

Great job. You are obviously active doing stuff inside and out. Keep up the good work
