It's all about choices.
One of the most critical moves I have made is eating NO processed foods (except for when I pinch one of DH cookies) and eating organic whenever I can!! I'm not diabetic but eating as if I were is very healthy!! I do have arthritis in my hand and am trying to eat an anti-inflamatory diet: Omega 3 rich foods. Using Coconut Oil when I have to heat the oil. Yes...organic IS more expensive but I eat LESS. Growing up I thought the Hippies were crazy with their food fetishes...but now I see they were pretty correct!!!

Out here in Hawaii most everything is more expensive...especially processed food that has to be shipped in...so I eat from the farmer markets. When I visit the mainland it's hard for me to eat healthily because there is so much processed food everywhere!!! I think the stress from living there is condusive to stuffing my face!!!!
Leap. The net will appear.

According to the CDC Diabetes is one of the most common chronic diseases in children and adolescents; about 151,000 people below the age of 20 years have diabetes. When diabetes strikes during childhood, it is routinely assumed to be type 1, or juvenile-onset diabetes. However, in the last 2 decades, type 2 diabetes (formerly known as adult-onset diabetes) has been reported among U.S. children and adolescents with increasing frequency.
