  • You can start by exercising at least a few times a week, eating healthy eat plenty of veggies, fruits, eat fish if you like it, chicken is good too, and usually recommended for diabetics instead of red meat.

  • Main thing is exercise, and keeping an 'active' life. You should try to maintain a BMI of under 25, as obesity (BMI > 30) is a risk factor for diabetes. Not eating a lot of refined sugars might help, but there isn't as much evidence to support that as well as exercise. So basically: maintain a healthy weight and exercise (aerobic).
