This assessment is likely helpful for newly-diagnosed diabetics or those who need a "refresher." I thought it was full of too much advertising for Onglyza (yeah, I know someone has to pay for all this). And I object to the only "obviously correct" answer questioning diet was the one that referred to the ADA recommendation. I'm pretty sure that Dr. Dansinger's reversal diet is not in synch with the ADA.
If you were diagnosed as a Type 1, then you probably are on some kind of insulin. You really should be directed to a diabetic educator and a certified dietitian for some advice on how to balance your insulin with your carbs. Most insurance plans will cover the cost and it's really important.
In the big picture of what to avoid, stick to whole grains, fresh fruits, veggies and lean proteins. Avoid highly processed "white" food - sugar, flour, white bread, rice, etc.
