When put diet and exercise as treatment, what does that mean to you?

Posted by Grasseater on December 21, 2014 at 5:53pm 1 Comment

For me as a T2 no meds, no physical limitations (other than being 69). Diet means controlled carb (not necessarily low carb). I try to be consistent with the amount and type of carbs from day to day. I have learned what different foods do to my… Continue
