After a lifetime (50 years) of coping with tendency to faint when my blood sugars dropped, I began to gain weight and then I was a full-blown Type 2 diabetic. My family doctor suggested Dr. Bernstein's book. Nothing fancy and you can find used copies at library sales of his first book if buying a new book is not in your budget.
I changed 1 meal at a time. It only took about 6 months and diabetes couldn't be measured in my system. The last meal and hardest one to change was my evening snack of peanut butter on whole grain toast.
Thanks for this email. I read the article, I think, that talks about the low carb diet; some good stuff and a bit of knowledge, but still working on it. Thanks again.

I just read an informative article on Chris Kesslers site about whether low carb diets are good for you written by a dietition. It had some good points. I find I need to do low carb - I feel better. But it is not for everyone.
Georgia122; Thanks for this information. I'll be going to check out this website and her books. Thanks again...LCDDub

You can also go to www.glycemicindex.com. It is the site started by Prof. Jennie Brand-Miller who started the research into the low glycemic way of eating. You will notice the site origin is Australian. Because of this, some of the foods you look up don't pertain to the US. But it will give you some basic idea on the glycemic index/load of some the foods you like that may be similar. It also has a tab that shows you what books she has published on the subject. Check out some of the titles at your local bookstore to see if the information is what you need. That's what I did and I found a couple that where helpful. Hope this helps.
Thanks for the tip LADYSTARWIND, I'll look into it...

Does anyone out there in Spark Nation have some ideas on low carb and low glycemic index foods and diets? This was suggested by my Doctor and what I've found on-line so far hasn't been that informative or they want a price $$$. Any ideas would be greatly apprectiated and always remember 1 pound at a time, 1 day at a time...
