The biggest challenge in managing our diabetes is controlling our weight. But fortunately we have three roads that will take us there.
Cheryl, who is my friend and colleague at HealthCentral, traveled one of these roads. I have traveled the other two. Each of them have been a great trip.
A couple of weeks Cheryl wrote “How I Defeated Obesity and Diabetes” for the obesity area of HealthCentral. Gastric bypass surgery is the road that worked for her.
Since Cheryl knew that I had defeated obesity via other means, she asked me to round out the picture with my experience. Our intention is to provide a comprehensive roadmap of the three ways that we know from our own experience that will work for controlling obesity.
Cheryl has written many posts for HealthCentral about surgical ways to manage weight. I have also written a couple of posts here, more recently at http://www.healthcentral.com/diabetes/c/17/154007/reverses-bariatric/.
I once considered surgery to manage my weight. But instead I took the other two routes that are available to those of us who have diabetes.
