Jeannie, you mentioned radishes and I have a question.  I have been eating them with almost every dinner and keep them around to munch on as a snack in between meals too.  Since I've been doing this along with a change of diet and exercise, my numbers are lower than before.  Do you think they help keep readings lower because they are so crunchy, making the body work to digest them?  I was thinking that a combination of radishes, celery and cucumbers would be a good because they're all raw and crunchy and be good to make the body harder.  Or, is that line of thinking off base?

I don't think they would lower numbers... they are just stopping you from snacking on anything else that might be higher in carbs. It's more the exercise that's probably affecting your numbers by my way of thinking. Celery can be high in sodium if you are on a sodium restricted diet but for everyone else,that sounds like great food to me.

Ok.  Well, then at least the radishes do limit the snacking.  I also keep almonds and walnuts (and cashews but I limit those) which seems to give the feeling that I've eaten something more substantial.  Thanks.
