Pinkrose has asked some very good questions and given you some very good things to work on. Learning what to do takes everybody time, but the suggestions pinkrose gave you will help a lot. For education, have you seen Dr. McDougall's diabetes video on youtube? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iosoXlr3ZVI
I am guessing and hoping that your goal is to reverse your diabetes. In other words, get to a point where you are taking no medications and your blood sugars are below diabetic levels. Dr. Fuhrman's book, as mentioned by pinkrose is also a good resource. If you want to see what this kind of eating looks like, you could browse my blog: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iosoXlr3ZVI
Getting thin is really important in diabetes, and you should be on a program to get thin rapidly. Maybe the simplest test is the "plate test" used by Jeff Novick (lots of good info in his forum). Check that 95% or more of the calories on every plate come from intact whole plant food in the form it comes from nature (you can slice, dice, peel or cook it). You have to avoid to the max any processed or refined foods. As the weight comes down, the sugars come down too and the spirits go up. You could read about some of the Star McDougallers who have reversed diabetes in that section of the site. I reversed mine and am still working on it, as I always will be.
The Pleasure Trap is a great book. You can view one of Doug Lisle's Pleasure Trap lectures at Youtube. I think that the Vegetarian Society of Hawaii has a channel there. Also look at some of the other speakers that discuss diabetes, like Dr. Shintani.
The hardest part is breaking the addictions to the old food and setting new habits. For example, if you followed the food that I ate in my October challenge at my blog, you would lose an impressive amount of weight while your sugars went down. Although that seems easy, you might well experience a lot of withdrawal symptoms, and that is why you are buying the Pleasure Trap book. Good luck.
