You don't (and shouldn't, unless approved by your primary care doctor and/or nutritionist) need to follow this diet to the letter, but it gives some great ideas about cutting back on the starches and sugars as well as great recipes to try:
www.sugarbusters.com (sorry but can't make this clicky)
There are some great sites out there (some not-so-great, too--typical) for Type 2 Diabetics to learn more about their disease, how to manage it and what foods they can/cannot eat.
And again, contact your doctor/nutritionist for their suggestions, as well.
Good luck to you! :) I've been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes since early 2007. Since that time, I've lost over 100 lbs and I've learned how to eat healthier and take my overall well-being more seriously.
