Didnt know type 2 Diabetics took insulin, I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when I was 9 so, I been insulin dependent ever since. Congrats on the weight loss by the way!
I saw this quote from Reg Park..
..the only difference between a strength trainer and a bodybuilder is the amount of food they eat. The bodybuilder should increase caloric intake to add more muscle mass while the strength trainer, or powerlifter, shouldn’t eat so much to avoid unnecessary weight.
I dont know if this has any truth to it, or maybe its a old theory. Though I'm sure everyone on here has some awesome advice to share with you. Good luck on your goals!
