I'm trying to help a friend who has Type II diabetes. He's overweight, and I'm hoping the diabetes can be eventually controlled with diet and exercise. The literature says diabetics need to count carbs and fats. I know my friend--who lives alone--will find a lot of detail overwhelming. Is there an easier way?
I've been eating low-carb for four years and found it the easiest way to lose weight. Does wonders for my triglycerides, too. Is an extremely low-carb diet dangerous for someone with adult-onset diabetes? Thanks for the help.
