I assume, your goal is to lose weight "and" control your blood sugar levels...therefore both criteria are important for your overall health. I imagine with a few tweaks, you can easily be meeting both needs---calories and carbs. If you want more help, please make your nutrition tracker public. Let me know if you need the steps to do this.

As you are a Diabetic, I think that you would be best to ask your Dr for a referral to a Registered Dietitian who will be able to help you as it applies to YOU.
Good luck, Kris

Being over your calories will slow your weight loss progress. Being under in carbs means your body is underfueled; however, I'm not qualified to provide advice based on your diabetic. I think that would be a question best asked of your doctor, who knows your medical history.
Perhaps if you share your trackers, we can help make suggestions to improve balance in your diet. Meeting both goals is important!

I have noticed for the last few days I have consistently been over my total daily calories but at or under my total daily carbs. Being a diabetic, which is more important?
