I did a lot of things: I ate high fat for a while, lifted weights, took more insulin, so I'd have to eat more; started snacking all the time. Now, after 26 years, I'm at a decent weight. I'm glad to see this is mentioned. I used to be required by my job to attend "Diabetes Care" classes, and I would always be the thin one in a room full of not so thin people. A huge part of the class would always include "losing weight." I got to the point I wanted to cry because I didn't want to lose weight, and no one was helping me figure out what to do. I FINALLY got sent to a dietician who recommended some things, and honestly, I really don't think anything worked. My metabolism just changed as I got older, and I just hold on to the weight more. I'm just glad I'm in the "normal" weight range now! :) Fat is more concentrated calories, so some people recommend that (controversial, I know as a lot of fat isn't good for diabetics), but my problem was that it made me feel full a LOT faster, and then I wasn't hungry...for a WHILE afterwards. If you eat more carbs, that can potentially work if you pay close attention to your blood sugars because if it makes you go high, that means the carbs are just being flushed out of your system and not being used. Protein/muscle weighs more, so I'd probably suggest eat more protein (but avoid damage to kidneys), and lift weights to gain muscle, if possible.
