That sounds suspiciously like blaming the victim. There are a lot of people who eat the SAD and don't develop diabetes, which pretty much wrecks the "bon-bon eating couch potato" cause of diabetes. There's some evidence that there's a genetic pre-disposition to it. Chronic stress is also a factor, as is mentioned later. There's also some evidence for an auto-immune factor in the development of Type 2, along with possibly either infection or a side effect of antibiotic treatment. The cause is a lot more complex than the #5 bullet point would indicate.
WRT #11: You'd have to eat a massive amount of broccoli for it to have any noticeable effect. It's far from a "superfood". Come to that the idea that any of the foods mentioned in #12 are "superfoods" is a bit silly.
WRT #15: This is debatable. There's some evidence that coffee (not just caffeine) can help reduce the onset of Type 2 diabetes. As long as you drink good quality coffee without sugar or flavorings, a couple of cups a day is probably going to do more good than harm.
The trouble with diabetes is that it doesn't go away. Even if you completely reverse the symptoms and return to normal blood glucose levels, you still have to remain on a low-carb diet for the rest of your life.
While you're working out what works for you, testing is essential. It's the best way to find out what you can and can't eat -- and that's essential.
Also, it's not just as simple as "eat these foods and not those". Different people will respond differently. Quantity also matters, as does when you eat.
Exercise is essential, but again, the level of exercise that works for one individual doesn't necessarily work for another.
To deal with diabetes requires that one educates oneself in all aspects of the disease and then experiments until one eliminates the symptoms and gets back to normal blood glucose measures. After that, one still needs to monitor things as illness, stress, changes in routines, etc. can derail the metabolism.
