A Brief Background on DiabetesYou may currently be managing your diabetes, or you may have been warned by your physician that being overweight could lead to adult onset diabetes (typically Diabetes Type 2). Experts advise that even a 5-7% loss of overall body weight, combined with exercise, could reduce the risk of Type 2 diabetes by more than half. By achieving the recommended weight loss rate of 1-2 pounds per week, in a time span of only 14 weeks, a person weighing 200 pounds could achieve the weight loss of 7%.
