When looking around at the type of information provided to people with type 2 diabetes and prediabetes, we identified some major issues:
1. the info was/is so generalized that it doesn’t really help people understand diabetes or what to do to reverse* it.
2. the info and research being shared was/is often focused on ‘prevention’ of diabetes, rather than TREATMENT. These two things, and research surrounding them, can’t be lumped into the same category as they are completely different. Prevention of a condition is not the same as treatment for the condition.
3. the info was/is outdated, pulling the wool over people’s eyes, keeping them sick, rather than empowering them with the knowledge and tools to reverse* diabetes.
4. It felt like no one was brave enough to dig in and tackle the issues head on, challenging the status quo and being honest and truthful about how diabetes effects people. And more importantly, what can be done to reverse* the condition.
So, with a deep concern for the state of our healthcare system and the lack of education being provided to people with type 2 diabetes and prediabetes, Diabetes Meal Plans was founded in 2015 with the ambition to explore and present current research-based information on all aspects of type 2 diabetes and prediabetes treatment.
The DMP team endeavors to do service to you (and the public) by taking complex information and making it easy-to-understand, and most importantly, making information practical so you can apply what you learn to your everyday life.
Our dream was to create a community that solely focused on treating diabetes with diet and lifestyle so that people (you) could feel motivated and empowered to live a happy, healthy life.
We understand the biggest challenge people with type 2 diabetes and prediabetes face is determining what to eat and following a food plan. And combined, our evidence-based info (the education) and meal planning membership services (the tools) help overcome these challenges. Because we know that with the right knowledge, skills and tools, you can feel confident and motivated to change your life for the better.
How do we know? Because we’ve seen it, time and time again!
Our community has grown from humble beginnings and now reaches over 75,000 through email and social channels. We’re truly grateful to be a part of people’s lives and help make a real difference.

*Reverse: While diabetes is not reversible from a diagnostic standpoint (once you have it, you have it), diabetes can be reversible from a physiological standpoint in many. That is, you can work to get your blood sugars within a normal healthy range so you are functioning like a non-diabetic. Research shows this is true and people are achieving this everyday, even if they’ve had diabetes for 20 years!
