one thing I will say before you say anything keep your blood sugar always perfect because otherwise there is no point in working out (other than to lower it) but you cant eat a hole bunch of crap, have a high blood sugar and expect to get bigger. Diabetics have an advantage and a disadvantage for body building. We take insulin, so that helps alittle if you manipulate it correctly. However if your blood sugar is high, you CANNOT gain muscle really because the keytones in your body prevent it from happening...at least thats how I understand it...could be wrong
