The best person to answer that question is your physician. Given the two different types of diabetes as well as the varying degrees of the disease itself, we strongly advise that you consult your physician and ask her/him to assess our program.
However, for those of you with type 2 diabetes and who need to lose weight, we feel this program could be beneficial. In addition to potential weight loss -- as a result of consuming portion controlled meals -- the flexibility of our menu selection system allows you to choose lower glycemic products as well as meals with plenty of fruits and vegetables. For instance, we use lower glycemic products such as whole wheat, multi grains and whole grains as well as brown rice as opposed to traditional white rice.
"I was an overweight man with type 2 diabetes. Despite taking oral medications, my glucose levels were rarely within my target range. My doctor and I decided that I would have to lose significant weight or consider insulin; a sobering thought.
As I sought a weight-loss food program, I investigated Healthy Heart Meals. Just as I was to start the program, I participated in a Diabetic Clinic at a local hospital. I showed the dieticians material from the Healthy Heart Meals Website and they researched it themselves and told me to try it.
Since beginning the program, my weight has gradually decreased. However, my glucose levels fell quickly and are now rarely outside my target range (measured as many as seven times a day); and then usually because I went off the program.
It was an added bonus that I enjoyed the meals and didn't feel like I was on a "diet." It has certainly helped me."
