    My husband weighed a little over 300 lbs when he was diagnosed as diabetic last week! He has been placed on a 2000 calorie a day diet, which will decrease as he loses more weight! He has lost 20 lbs this past week and imagine his calories per day will decrease soon — probably down to 1800! Prior to being diagnosed last week, he had been borderline for a few years! When the doctors first warned about him being borderline, I helped him follow the same 2000 calorie a day diet, but when it came time for him to take care of himself he didnt take it seriously — and now he is diabetic and has to administer slow acting insulin twice a day and fast acting insulin up to 6 times a day (definitely warn your brother about this!!!!)His diet includes three meals and three snacks — although the dietician and diabetes nurse didnt say he had to watch sugars, we are watching them along with the other carbs — and we have increased his fiber to be included with all meals and snacks! There is a theory that fiber helps the body absorb the insulin! Limit juices and try to stay with fresh or canned fruits! Always eat protein with carbs! While in the hospital, it was suggested my husband eat a consistent amount of carbs with each meal and snack — they recommended 5 servings !!!! but, we have had such a hard regulating his blood sugar, I have decreased the carb servings to three per meal and 1 per snack and that seems to be helping!I feel for your brother, being on a fixed income with a family and having to eat a special diet — that is going to be difficult because all the special foods can be expensive! Beans are pretty cheap, and they contain fiber, are a carb and are also a meat exchange! Canned fruits are a good alternative to fresh, and much cheaper! Look for sales that have the fruit packed in unsweetened juice! Frozen vegetables are a good buy — cheaper than the fresh and you can more easily control portions rather than with the canned (and they taste much better than canned)!I hope the best for your brother! Losing weight will help with his borderline diabetes problem — as well as other problems that can pop up!
