ok so a normal calorie intake is 8700 calories a day so they say, exactly what is the level here and what is eliminated from what is suggested to be a healthy diet?

The drug target will no doubt be appatite suppressors because long term fasting is a difficult discipline

8700/day???

Good grief... that might be normal for an elephant or walrus... or maybe a sumo wrestler... but a normal human man only needs about 2500... and athletes about 500~1000 more than that.. Cripes.. even 300-lb NFL linemen ony stuffs 5000 into their bellies

Pretty much everything that isn't bland. No sugar is a goal most people have trouble reaching because so many foods either have sugar as a part of their chemical composition.

Type 2 is easily controlled with a drug called Metformin,proper diet,and exercise. Most people can eliminate Type 2 if they do this and lose weight.

Easier said than done because once you become a diabetic,you crave sweets.

Those who don't control it eventually become insulin-dependent Type-1 diabetes,which is a VERY big deal.

The pharmia would like you to think that was the truth, reality is they will add other drugs as time goes by. I was on minimum sugar for years before Type II, losing weight is not easy it requires massive effort which assumes you can exercise, so we come back to the question. High protean diets will only take you so far, you need carbs for energy so there has to be balance

losing weight is not easy

Most things worth having aren't easy to obtain.

Losing weight for a diabetic is a real challenge because diabetics crave sweets. Still,there is no denying that many people are able to use self-discipline to lose weight through both diet and exercise.

Is it easy? Of course not. If it were,there would be damn few fat people.

I am a Type diabetic myself,and never really craved sweets until I became a type diabetic. I had literally gone for more than a year without eating anything like ice cream,pies,candy bars,etc,etc,etc. I just didn't want them.

Then I got sick with a couple of serious illnesses at the same time,and damn near doubled my weight due to barely even being able to walk and breathe. Suddenly I am as hooked on sweets as a junkie is to heroin.

I have recovered a lot of the "good health ground" I lost when I first started getting sick and have lost a little more than 50 lbs,but still have a long ways to go.

And it ain't going to happen overnight. I am going to have periods where I feel better and as a result do more and am able to lose more,and I am going to have periods where I don't do as well,don't feel as well,and will gain some back.

Up and down just seems to be the nature of life in many respects. I just have to not get discouraged,and keep my nose to the grindstone as much as possible.
