I appreciate the advice on keeping carb levels the same at each meal. I thought the recommended daily carb levels a bit high. I eat maximum 30 grams of unrefined and nutrition rich carbs each meal. I'm diabetic and this keeps my glucose levels stable and in a really good range. I could never dream of drinking fruit juice regularly like the article suggests. Maybe everyone is different. Report
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! Report
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. Report

I learned alot from the the article.I'm just new at this. Report
I am not diabetic, but I try to follow similar type meal plans offered on SparkPeople. Excellent information, thanks! Report
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. Report

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. Report
this looks like a good balanced plan for any one... Report
Thank you excellent information as always! Report
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. Report
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.
