Have you tried tuna with no mayo, very lean baked chicken nuggets no skin),making chicken jerky (dehyrated, it's a very good snack & low carb).

You could also do a search for South Beach phase 1 menu ideas.

Whey Protein powders are a good option for those weight training. Usually th folk at gnc are more than willing and knowledgeable to help point you to the protein designed just for you

I live in NJ and it seems there are very few dietitians here. They are A) not taking new patients or B) my insurance is not covering the costs or C) they are not helpful enough

The easiest thing would be to see dietitian to improve the diet. In my case it's a little bit more difficult. I did make an effort few times. I tried to schedule visits and was pretty much so unsuccessful.

Thank you for telling me about the menu for diabetics on SP. I will check into this AWESOME.

SP has a menu plan for diabetics. Have you tried looking at that. I agree that your doctor should be more helpful and even refer you to a registered dietitian.

Greek Yogurt has a lot of protein. I like the plain, nonfat, Fage. You can sweeten it with a little Splenda, if you'd like. Egg whites have protein without the fat (or you can use the EggBeaters). Try quinoa instead of rice, if you eat rice.

You might try to do a little searching on SparkRecipes, as they have a ton of lower carb recipes. Last night, I made chicken with green beans and peanut butter sauce (found it on Spark Recipes). I served it with a little brown rice, although maybe quinoa would have been a better choice for more protein. Here's the link:

I'll also share a one of mine to get you started:

I've recently come up with a chicken broccoli lasagna recipe that's pretty low in carbs (my husband is diabetic). It has about 340 calories per serving with 30 grams of carbs, 12 grams of fat and 29 grams of protein. A serving is 1/6 of the recipe and it is really a decent-sized serving. Here are the ingredients:
Chicken Breast (cooked), no skin, 11 ounces
Broccoli, fresh, 250 grams
Mushrooms, fresh, 250 grams
Classico - Creamy Alfredo Sauce, Light 1 jar 420 grams
Lasagna noodles, enriched, 150 grams
Lucerne 2% milk Mozzarella Cheese, 126 grams
Ricotta Cheese, Low Fat, Precious, 224 grams

Basically, I cook the chicken in the oven, then shred it with forks. I usually do this a day or two before I cook the lasagna. I steam the broccoli and, while it is cooking, I saute the mushrooms in a nonstick skillet with no added fat. When the mushrooms are done cooking, I add the alfredo sauce, the steamed broccoli (which I cut up into tiny pieces before adding), the chicken and the milk (you may need a little more or less...you don't want it too dry or too soupy). Then, I make the lasagna. I start with a layer of noodles, then a layer of the chicken mixture, then I spoon on some riccota, sprinkle with mozzarella and repeat the layering process (ending with a layer of cheese, not noodles as the noodles need to be lower in the lasagna to cook properly). Cook for about 1 hr on 350. It makes 6 large servings. I serve it with another veggie (salad, green beans, etc...tonight I served it with brussel sprouts).

Have you thought about changing your Dr to one is a little more helpful? OR asking for a referral to a Registered Dietitian? I don't think you would regret either moves!

I did not have the greatest experience with the doctor. From what I remember she was telling me that she can't believe I would eat this or that. Then, when I have asked her how to build a meal plan, she replied "you have to lower your carbs and increase proteins, eat healthy-lots of green veggies." I can't just eat scallions, parsley and lettuce. So I have decided to research and build my own plan based on peoples experiences and my experiences.
Thanks for being helpful.

Lean meat
Fish
Skinless Chicken


Dairy products also have carbs. Beans and lentils also have good protein, but are carb sources, too, BUT they also have good fibre.

Have you seen a Registered Dietitian? Perhaps now would be the time to ask your Dr for a referral to one to ensure that you get the advice as it pertains to YOU. It would be helpful if you took some printouts from your Nutrition Tracker so that she can see exactly what and how much you eat. This will make it easier to give you the right advice.

Good luck,
Kris

I have a diabetes for few years now. I found SparkPeople online by some kind of coincidence. I am using the tracking devices on here to track my calories (fats,carbs and proteins), workout and weight. Currently, I am having trouble with planning a diet. I have notice my calories are coming mainly from fats and carbs. I am working out and I need more proteins. What would be good foods for me? Any suggestions?
