Buongiorno amici:

Today, I want to talk about a personal story. My cooking school offer programs on various topics, but one, in particular, is dear to me because it is part of me. I am a chef diabetic, perhaps the worst combination you can think of, always surrounded by great food but continually scrambling in deciding what to eat and when. But, to be clear, I played soccer until my 40s and never had an issue with weight, nor did my family.

The discovery was a surprise, to put it mildly.

I am a skinny chef but fell victim to the American diet, just like millions of others. According to the CDC, more than 34 million Americans have diabetes (about 1 in 10), and approximately 90-95% of them have type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes most often develops in people over age 45. Still, more and more children, teens, and young adults are also growing it.

I am going to share what I do in managing my type 2. Hopefully, those of you “gifted” with this condition can appreciate some of my practices and suggestions. Listen for 25 minutes.
