A 12 page proposal to evaluate the effect of a vegetarian lifestyle on blood sugar levels. The study is designed to assess individual's current approach to blood sugar levels, approaches that may or may not include medications and that may or may not include a vegetarian diet.

must first identify a specific point of comparison. For the purposes of this paper that point will be the impact of a vegetarian diet on blood sugar for both
those that are currently taking medicine for diabetes and for those that are not.

the vegetarian diet on regulating blood sugar. The thesis that: a vegetarian diet translates
