@Deano72 you have experienced a tool you can use to help you manage your diabetes. When you're ready you may fight again.... maybe with more or... less effort. I my experience if you can get a great eating routine with little stress as hibitual 'norm' you will always be a winner. Some argue yo-yo dieting is damaging. Myself I feel any loss in huge diabetics like me can only be better than constantly adding. The perfect IR diet is stages which are longterm changes. Positive changes.
