I agree completely Karen! Although I was diagnosed 2 years ago, I quit drinking soda and eating fast foods about 6 or 7 years ago. I occasionally have to stop at fast food restaurants, but tried to keep it at salads when possible (riding in a motorcycle club... Sometimes it's easier to stop at BK or McD, etc.)
