Hi

1. Best diet in general to follow especially with your history is to have a more alkaline diet. This means more vegetables and fruit less acid, sweets (which you having), less refined foods, less alcohol. Drink 2 litres of purified water. In general for females it is best to decrease or avoid dairy products as much as possible (have feta cheese and low fat yoghurt in general.
2. For sweet cravings eat small frequent meals. Snack on unsalted nuts (no peanuts) or apples if feel like sweets.
Use GTF Chromium (1 tabs twice daily)
3. Use a product that contains Selenium (closests to a foodform not selenium selenite), betasitosterols, and glutamine. Also include omega 3 that is beneficial to over all health.
