In Response to dieting brother in law:
My brother in law was recently diagnosed with diabetes, and is now on a very strict diet. He is quite large and loves to eat, so this is very difficult for him. My sister also has health problems, therefore does not cook much at home. They ate out a lot. Now she is trying to help him get his diabetes under control and loose some weight. She has called me several times asking for good recipes too cook up that are not too challenging for her. It is great to share some of my cooking knowledge with her. I sure hope it helps them both.

I just heard on the news the other day that more and more people that undergo the bariatric surgery end up going off insulin within a few days. There is such evidence that they are drastically decreasing the BMI standards for Diabetics so they can have the surgery just to help control the diabetes.
I know it is a radical undertaking but maybe it is something he could talk to his doctor about.
