I have diabetes 2 and I am eating right and exercising. I have went from 2 glucovances a day to 1 a day. I hit a plateau and can't get the weight off. I am using plexus now only after 3 solid months of hard exercise and eating right. For me it is helping take the pounds off and giving me extra energy. I am doing the drink only not the accelerator because I have blood pressure issues. It may be a gimmick but it is working for me.
G'day and welcome to the forum.
These words always make my 'food beliefs' antennae rise:
I am eating right
Would you mind providing your understanding of "eating right" please?

IMO follow those links on testing and eat according to your meter. Low carb cook books also tend to be better than the "diabetic" cook books. Also keep in mind, sugar is sugar and a carb. Doesn't matter if it's "natural" or not, and carbs in general have the same effect as sugar on BG.

Only in putting 45-60 grams of carbs per meal. More 30-45 though my dietician wants the 45-60. No sugar ever if at all possible. Other than natural sugars.
Use your meter to work out the right carbs per meal for you. And your blood glucose cares less whether it was created from starches, added sugars or 'natural' sugars. It still goes up if you eat any of those.
I test a lot more than necessary
No you don't
especially if I try something new. If my body doesn't like it then I stay away from it.
An excellent practice.
I measure everything and don't eat a crumb more than allowed. I follow the diabetic cook books I have to a science.
I have never read a 'diabetic' cookbook that was worth more than the paper it was printed on. Consider replacing them with low-carb cook-books.
