Tough call. If you can imagine eating the way you eat now for the rest of your life then I would suggest hanging with it unless you plateau. And then consider MWL and/or other tweaks that work best for you.
Good point. I am very comfortable eating the way I have been. Staying this way as long as my results - weight loss, A1c, blood pressure keep improving is a good idea.
Not sure about your age and the number of years you might have eaten an unhealthy diet - not sure it's realistic to expect great numbers overnight. You've certainly proven that commitment to changes creates change.
Well I'm 41. My diet has probably been fairly SAD for most of my life. About 10 years ago I became a lacto-ovo vegetarian but I was eating a lot of junk food. Too many eggs too. I'm not sure how long I've been diabetic. It probably happened sometime in the last 3 years.
After thinking about it some I guess I am happy with dropping from 8.1 to 7.0 in 9 weeks. I was looking at Neal Barnard's book and one of his patients named Vance dropped to 7 in a couple of months. Took Vance 14 months to get his A1c down to 5.3 aka normal.
