Medically supervised: Diabetes is a serious disease and it is best to follow in a medically monitored program. Physician guidance can help monitor the sugars and blood pressure changes that can occur in a weight loss program. Also the use of appetite suppressants maybe used which have to be monitored.

One you stick to: Find a program you can stick with. Weight watchers is ranked one of the best. If you cut 500 calories each day you will lose one pound/week. Keep a food log, this is a good website: http://www.Livestrong.Com/thedailyplate/. Exercise 3 times a week for 30-40 minutes. Drink water when you are hungry to curb cravings and before each meal to control portion sizes.
