But what do you do if dieting doesn’t fit into your life right now?
I have five answers to that question…
5 Tricks for Diabetes Weight Loss without Dieting:
1. Diabetes Weight Loss Drink
If you currently drink sugary soft drinks or add sugar to your coffee and tea, you have a wonderful opportunity to quickly shed pounds without dieting.
Swap those sugary drinks for this warm diabetes weight loss drink made with apple cider vinegar.
Warning: It’s so warm, inviting and beneficial that you might get addicted!
There’s been a lot written about the beneficial link between apple cider vinegar and diabetes.
Apple Cider Vinegar and Blood Sugar
According to WebMD, there is scientific speculation that apple cider vinegar is on par with some medications when it comes to controlling blood sugar. It works by partially blocking the digestion of starchy foods.
Apple Cider Vinegar and Weight Loss
New York Times Best-Selling Author, Dr. Mercola promotes apple cider vinegar for weight loss due to its ability to increase fullness and reduce your overall calorie intake.
In a study, participants taking apple cider vinegar had an average calorie drop of 200 to 275 calories per day. That drop equates to about 1 & ½ pounds per month without trying.
There is a catch.
You need to buy unfiltered apple cider vinegar.
You can tell it’s unfiltered by looking at it. Unfiltered will look cloudy and have a blob of stuff on the bottom of the bottle. That blob is the active “mother”. It contains all of the probiotics and other substances that make it work for diabetes blood sugar control.
By far the most trusted brand of real apple cider vinegar is Braggs. If your grocery store has a good health section, you might be able to find it on the shelf, but you’re better off buying it on Amazon.com.
2. Use a Stopper
“Stopper” is the term I created to describe any non-calorie food, drink or activity that pulls you away from eating. They work great and stop overeating immediately.
Here’s how it works.
When temptation hits, turn to your go-to stopper. My favorites are strong-flavored mints, hot tea and flossing.
Feeling snacky in the middle of the afternoon? Brew a cup of tea and promise yourself that you’ll finish the tea before having a snack. Because tea takes a long time to drink, it gives your brain time to get past the craving.
Want to “Boredom eat” in front of the TV at night? Grab some dental floss and use it. Flossing leaves your mouth feeling clean, which makes you not want to dirty it up with food.
I used to use stoppers all the time when I was losing weight. You can see my before picture and learn how to speed up your weight loss here.

3. Think Add before Subtract
Most diabetes stop dieting because they try to give up all of their favorite foods overnight. This leaves you feeling tired, discouraged and moody.
For different (read that as better) results, think add before subtract.
When you add super foods to your diet, your body is flooded with the nutrients it needs. This quiets hunger and stops cravings before they start.
Super foods include beans, non-starchy vegetables, nuts, seeds and low-sugar fruits, like berries.

4. Unlock the Psychological Key to Weight Loss
A large survey revealed 90% of people overlook the emotional connection to food when it comes to weight loss (psyblog, 2015)
According to Dr. Robinson, a neuropsychologist at Orlando Health, this explains why people can’t keep weight off after they lose it.
To unlock the psychological key to weight loss, keep a daily food and mood diary. Look for patterns to emerge, like eating comfort foods when you’re feeling stressed. Becoming aware of the emotional connection is sometimes enough to prevent a high-calorie binge.
5. Take a Blood Sugar Stabilizer
Uncontrolled blood sugar is the root of diabetes weight loss troubles.
The typical western diet destabilizes blood sugar, which encourages fat storage.
Not every diabetic can be healed with medications. In some cases, prescription drugs do little to help, and worsen your condition with unwanted side effects. It gets frustrating.
