Who is the Diabetic Herbivore?

img_9725

Rebecca Dugas was diagnosed with diabetes at age 35 and struggled to get her condition under control for  several years. She even tried a radical high fat vegan diet on the advice of a book author, hoping it would reverse the disease as the author suggested it might.

Although cutting all meat products from her diet didn’t seem to affect her blood sugars very much, she did discover other benefits and decided to stick with a vegetarian diet. She re-introduced dairy, eggs, and occasional seafood to her diet, in order to expand the list of things she can eat. You can read her full story here and more about this blog here.

In addition to being a diabetic vegetarian, Rebecca is also a professional freelance writer and editor, an environmentalist, and a nomadic full-time RVer with her husband and two cats.
