    All good advice Cait, especially that we’re not taught “how” to do new behaviors, and you’ve offered us some great tips.

    As a peer-mentor who speaks to PWDs across the country I was inspired to write my book, “Diabetes Do’s & How-To’s” to give people just that information. You may want to take a look – it offers 20 Food Do’s and How To’s.

    Great job Cait. I also am a Type I and a Registered Dietitian. I do a lot of diabetes education at my job at the hospital as a clinical dietitian. Teaching others about how to take care of their diabetes/diet also helps motivate me to take care of myself. I love your My Plate visual :) . Keep up the good work!

    Great post! I’ve had diabetes in the family and im usually the strict diet enforcer for them, i have noticed the more i mention the more concious they become, and eventually that helps turn it into a habit. I rarely have to give them “the look” anymore. I have read in a coule places that the paleo diet is effective for those with diabetes, do you know anyone with exprieince in this?
