  • This is only my opinion backed by personal experience and good results.

    -Your diet is more or less good.I can only suggest two changes.One is giving up coffee(Difficult???).Replace it with plain milk or little bourn vita or ovaltine. Next introduce mixed boiled sprouts twice a day just before lunch and dinner replacing rice and wheat partly.

    -You have some scope for reducing weight safely.Your B M I should be on the lower range of safe level.That should be around 73 kg.Please consider it.

  • This looks like trying to live with diabetes & live to eat. Eat to live and try to get diabetes cured would have been a better approach.

    In 2006 I was declared diabetic.

    Followed LWMDR.

    In 2009 I declared myself not-diabetic; cured.

    Back to normal diet, fruits, occasional sweets.

    Jan 2012 onwards HbA1c 5.9%.

    07.08.2013 my HbA1c 5.6%.

    See blood test results at

  • what is LWMDR please explain. since you said Diabetic is cured.
