  • I lowered my hA1c and got myself out of the pre diabetic range by counting my carb intake and eating less than 60 carbs per day. It's not hard to do at all. I just excluded bread a bbqbd pasta from my diet and started eating more green vegetables, cooked and raw. And I started drinking nothing but water, no diet drinks for me!
  • If I ate 30-45 carbs per meal my blood sugar would be over 200 all the time. I eat less than that per day and don't need drugs or insulin to control my blood glucose.

    I learned alot from the the article.I'm just new at this.
  • I am not diabetic, but I try to follow similar type meal plans offered on SparkPeople. Excellent information, thanks!
  • Super disappointed in the inclusion of dairy recommendations. So many people are lactose intolerant. Many others are vegan or trying to reduce cruelty.
    Interesting side note: new nutrition guidelines in Canada - the first ever to be formed without beef and dairy board influence - have eliminated recommendations for dairy entirely.
  • great information thanks
  • I started counting exchanges.
  • Thank You for the information.

    while OJ may only have 26g of carbs it is guaranteed to spike your blood sugars! it si what nurses use to get your blood sugar up rapidly if someone is having a hypoglycemic episode.
  • this looks like a good balanced plan for any one...
  • Thank you excellent information as always!
  • All vegetables and fruits do not have the same nutrient values as all others, and basing what you eat on a quarter-of-a-plate is not very accurate. Its better to find out what system works best for you, keeps everything in line, and easy to follow. While counting is tedious, a carb is a carb. It seems counter-productive to substitute a system of carb counting with one in which there is so much guesswork.
  • This seams like a lot of carbs to me. I've cut back a bit more, and didn't think OJ was even an option... but I know it makes sense not to say no to foods if you can reasonably limit them. I've been off diabetes meds since Sept 2015 and don't plan on going back on.
  • wheres the fruits and veggies..1/2 cup broccoli...really...not one leafy green (it says salad but how much is unclear),,,,then on top of all that you omit any veggies for breakfast

    This is the same info I was given in 2006. I followed it to a T and my glucose levels go higher. Took me years to figure out I just can't follow the standard dietary guidlines and lose weigh and improve A1C. I now follow LCHF and fasting. Not saying this is for everyone. As my doctor told me this week: You have to find what works best for you.
