Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Diagnosed Prediabetic: Does honest, practical info exist?
So, I got diagnosed, and given a couple prescriptions. Am also really overweight and don't want to end up a full diabetic.
Purchased a book, "The Blood Sugar Solution" by Mark Hyman.
Reading through it, I cannot afford to do what this book wants me to do. The first chapter instructs me to do a questionnaire on the book's website, which then suggests nearly $500 in nutritional supplements for me to buy.
The diet is also beyond my means. I can't afford organic, free-range, gluten-free, etc. etc. everything. I also don't see me being able to logistically carry things like Salmon Salad in Steamed Collard Wraps to work everyday for lunch.
Is there any info out there from someone NOT trying to sell me something? Something practical that someone living on a tight budget can afford?
