Radishes

A medium-size radish has just 1 calorie and well under half a gram of carb

Try 3 red radishes with 1 tablespoon fat free cream cheese, then lightly sprinkle them with chives...20 calories and 2 grams of carb...A radish is low in digestible carbs and high in roughage and water, it makes for a healthy munch for Diabetics and dieters alike.

Make a Radish dip, slice in salads, eat as a snack.....

Bread

Pumpernickel Bread has resistant starch and is a fat burning carb. Rye is also a good choice.....once resistant starch reaches the large colon, it is fermented by bacteria, similar to how fiber is digested, so it does not raise blood sugar levels

Eat Raw Nuts

Dr. David Jenkins of the University of Toronto
concluded, “Mixed, unsalted, raw, or dry-roasted nuts have benefits for both blood glucose control and blood lipids and may be used as part of a strategy to improve diabetes control without weight gain.” Those following a natural lifestyle will choose non-irradiated nut sources that have not been processed or altered in any fashion. A 2 ounce serving is recommend by him. Nuts have not been found to contribute to weight gain in his report.
