This past weekend, I was so excited when I watched and listened to a doctor (Dr. David Samadi) on Fox News talk about how well Type II diabetics do with weight loss, even the smallest amount.

I recently read in USA Today about how Medicare's anti-obesity initiative is creating doubt about its effectiveness. I can see why and I'm glad it's coming under fire. Counseling does not work...I repeat, counseling does not work.

As we wind down the month of November, I don't want to overlook that this month is the American Diabetes Month. It is a very important awareness campaign created to educate and inform the public about the disease. There are many myths about diabetes and I hope to dispel some of the common ones that I've heard. I hope this helps you, dear readers.

Vitamins are suppose to be good for you...right? Well, often times they end up doing more harm than good. I've always been of the mindset that you should get your total nutrition from whole foods and not through pills, vitamins or supplements of any kind.

It's been several weeks since I announced our first-ever diabetic weight loss contest and I'm happy to report the 7 contestants are doing great! So, with a couple of months under their ever-tightening belts, I thought I'd provide you with an update on how they are doing and the progress they've made so far.
