For breakfast I have 1/2 cup of sredded wheat with 1/2 cup milk on it.
Lunch I will have a salad or a sandwich on on piece of bread and a sugar free jello
supper is a piece of meat and a veggie. snack if I don't use all my carbs up is either 1/2 cup of 1% milk or a bananna.
I drink water, or diet pop or a crystal light drink
My mouth is really dry most of the time so I have to have something to drink most of the time
You have all given such wonderful advise, and the food choices sound delicious! There should be more dieticians out there with logical advise, like you guys! I was asking Debbie about her diet because I know what the typical dietician will tell their patients. And yes, they are heavy on the grains, and wrong kind of carbs, in my opinion. Have you tried Stevia for a sweetener? Those artificial sweeteners scare me and affect me with all those chemicals and side effects. Stevia is an herb, not a chemical. Not sure if it affects diabetics, so some of you may want to jump in here and share your experience. Saying all that, I'm betting if you eliminate the grains, including corn, and yeast, as well as the refined/processed sugar, even for awhile, you will see results with your count. Let us know.
