Randy Jackson is ready for a season of big change at American Idol.

What can fans of the singing competition expect as he shares the judges table with Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban?

Jackson dished about Idol during GDNY on Wednesday.

He also spoke about being diagnosed with Type-2 diabetes.

Jackson follows these tips to stay healthy:

· Set personal goals: Work with your doctor to come up with a treatment plan that works for you and set specific goals for blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol.

· "Tune up" your diet: You don't have to give up all the foods you love. Eat smaller portions, fill up on fresh fruits and vegetables, and keep track of your carbs.

· "Move to your own groove": You can have fun while exercising. If you can't get to a gym - take a walk, park your car a little farther way, or take the stairs. Every little bit helps, as long as you keep moving.

· Gather your fans: Having a supportive entourage can help keep you on track. Involve family and friends in your diabetes management plan - a little support goes a long way.

· Check out TakingDiabetestoHeart.com for more tips from me and some great information to help manage your diabetes.

And here are some of Jackson's favorite (and healthy) recipes found on TakingDiabetestoHeart.com:
