Our doctor told my husband he has to go "carb-less" for a month. What a great challenge! I am sure we won't maintain a no-carb existence, but we will keep the carbs in check once his glucose comes down.

I'm giong too, and have already started, eating more yogurt, drinking a bit more milk, and get in at least one glass of water a day (I'm not really fond of just plain water). Also, if I can afford it, I'd like to start drinking more fruit/vergetable combination juices. Just simples things that are affordable and doable without going nuts and changing everything all at once. A good start I think. Also, even though I have to take them for medical reasons, I have recently cut down a considerable amount on my medications (which is NOT easy after taking some of them for over 20+ years trust me!). But I'm really going to try my hardest not to go back up on them no matter how much pain I'm in. I think, for me personally, this is a good start. Good luck to everyone else on here who are planning, in different ways that are right for them and their lifestyles and budgets, that they're able to carry through with their plans! :)

I'll try to eat more often (as in, more meals per day - I'm hypoglycemic so this is a must! Tired of purses getting ruined by mashed candies/glucose pills). I'll eat as many home-cooked meals and home-grown veggies as possible, and plan ahead by making healthy small meals in advance and freezing them for convenience.

Addin chia seeds to my food, but more importantly, not buying foods that have unknown junk in them and no hydrogenated oils or high fructose corn syrups at the least.

I'll be on a sodium restricted diet this year; trying to avoid acceleration of kidney disease.

I was going to try NutraSystem to lose weight. But then I decided to try your Healthy Aging Menu Plan - 1500 calories a day. I'm up to day 8 and I can already see results. It's great. I love it that you offer two different entrees for dinner - so that if I don't like one - the other is good. Have been a life long member of Eating Well. I recommend you magazine and site to everyone. Thanks!

I am now on a renal diet and it is very difficult. Lower potassium foods seem to be most important along with no salt or salty foods. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
