“Hi, my name’s Josh and I have the MyDiabetes app since April. I got it during the lockdown when I hit my weight record – 230 lbs (I’m 5’11”).
Honestly, I worried that at 230 lbs nothing will help me lose weight, especially when I failed so many diets in the past. But the MyDiabetes meal plan turned out to be super easy to follow. This boosted my confidence immediately.
The app had completely adjusted to my diabetes type, BMI index (30), age (53), and helped me set individual weight loss goals for the upcoming month.
Now I am 65 lbs down and my A1C results have dropped by 1.8%. The MyDiabetes.diet gave me recipes, exercises, and many useful tips for diabetes management at home. I went from a size 48 to a size 40 in eight months. I’m so grateful.”

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.
