Starting new - diabetes

So I have accomplished my goal of being completely off all soda pop by new year's, YEAH!! I know I am allergic to aspartame, it flares up my fibromyalgia symptoms but having drank diet soda since high school it has been really hard to break the habit.
Now for new goals, I signed up for eDiets Diabetes plan. Yesterday, I went grocery shopping (never do on a Saturday!!) and then came home and completely cleaned out the fridge washed from top to bottom. I know should have done that first, oh well, all the healthy groceries gave me motivation to clean. Now my fridge looks so pretty I wanted to take a picture LOL but my camera is broken atm

Good diet for weight loss.

The reason you are hungry all the time is because the severe diet you have created for yourself.
When I am in weight losing mode,which is pretty much all the time. I am never hungry. I am pretty active but 74 years old, so I gear my diet to that. I am also diabetic but very healthy
otherwise. For breakfast I have a combination of nuts and dried fruit. I use pecans,
walnuts, almonds, which I toast, prunes, apricots which I cut up, and dried cranberries. I have
1/2 cup of this mixture. The nuts are high in protein, the fruit provides a little seetness, vitamins and minerals

Why you should eat fruit -- not drink it -- to lower diabetes risk  — Today.com
Consuming whole fruits at least three times a week may lower your risk of developing type 2 diabetes, according to a new long-term study published Thursday in the British Medical Journal.

    Like for example what foods can the person avoid from eating and what foods are bad for you to not eat. Like eating foods with carbs is that good? What kind of drinks can you drink?

    • Don't eat food with high amounts of sugar...drink diet soda.

      Diabetic" Diet
      Kendra Blanchette, RD, CDE
      The diet that a person with diabetes follows to help manage his or her blood sugar levels is based on the same nutrition principles that any healthy …ease of glucose into the blood.
      Overall, a nutrition plan for a person with diabetes includes 10 to 20 percent of calories from protein, no more than 30 percent of calories from fats (with no more than 10 percent from saturated fats), and the remaining 50 to 60 percent from carbohydrates.
