“Hi, I’m Sarah, and I’ve been using the MyDiabetes app for almost 4 months. Following the personalized meal plan, I have managed to lose 31lb – a huge plus for my health and my self-confidence.
I’ve been self-conscious about my body for as long as I can remember. Living in a sunny beach town, I spend a lot of time in a swimsuit, and as I’ve gained weight over the years, it just became harder and harder on my confidence.
The real tipping point was when I got diagnosed with prediabetes – suddenly, the stakes got higher, and I needed to make some serious changes for the sake of my health. Lucky for me, that’s when I came across the MyDiabetes app.
The healthy low-carb recipes I found in my meal plan helped me get my blood sugar levels under control and kickstarted my new dietary routine. Week after week, I tracked my progress and got more motivated from seeing positive results. A convenient bonus is that I can track my weight loss and manage my prediabetes in one tool.
Four months in, I’ve lost 31lb – never been more ready for the beach!”

Maintaining a healthy weight with diabetes goes a long way. It helps support your blood pressure, cholesterol and reduces the risks of developing severe health problems. MyDiabates provides safe and long-term guidance on losing weight, maintaining a specialized diet, and regular exercise to keep track of your healthy diabetes routine.
Metabolism is a very complicated process by which your body converts what you eat and drink into energy. The same energy ensures the vital functions of the heart, lungs, digestive system, and many more. However, the metabolism of people with diabetes differs from the metabolism of people without it.
Christine Ellis, the Head of Nutrition at MyDiabetes explains that a combination of healthy eating patterns and regular physical activity is the key to a long-term weight management strategy. To ensure a balanced metabolism, without risk of blood sugar elevation, insulin resistance, and drastic weight gain, following a customized diet plan is essential.
Different bodies require different diets. It’s not rocket science – just facts. Your body shape is one of the main determinants of what type of diet will work for you. It can pinpoint what food to stay clear of, how many calories to consume, and what to focus on when exercising.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, pounds that are taken off gradually are more likely to stay off than those that are shed very fast. When you drop weight too quickly, especially with diabetes, you risk suffering from certain health complications that often require high levels of dietary restrictions and may lead to acute diabetes complications.
