David Wells Has Diabetes, Plans to Stop Eating

From "Wells makes major lifestyle changes due to diabetes" at

David Wells revealed Sunday that he has been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, but he vows to beat the disease and he has already drastically changed his lifestyle in order to do so....

"From the time I found out, I made changes. No more starches and sugar. No more rice, pasta, potatoes and white bread. No more fast food. I've cut out alcohol."

Bad but unsurprising news for Wells and Padres fans. How will he handle a major change in diet over the course of a 162-game season?
