50 grams or less

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

I've been trying to do Atkins, and I know it works to bring my blood sugars down. But I am such a bad girl that my cravings just over take me more than once.
Anyways my BS readings have been below 200 most days, but once I start on the carbs it goes back up, that and my weight. So when payday come on Friday I am heading to the health food store to get me some LC, or paleo bread since Bread is my major weakness. Also trying to keep all net carbs to 50 grams or less. (hopefully at 35)
I can do this, also for sure I am going back to Curves and will pre pay for 3 months of service at a time. Yes, Yes, Yes I can and will do this emoticon

    I'm learning about diabetes as my DD's 6 year old friend was just diagnosed. Heard at lunch today the Paleo bread is good. One snack I bought for the kids was the Dannon Lite and Fit Greek Yogurt. I think the vanilla tastes like frosting and only 8g carbs.

    Best wishes on your journey. I am a recent diabetic and still learning how to eat to control blood sugar. Leaning toward low carb does seem to help me too.

    Aim for complex carbs. Simple carbs are what cause major blood sugar spikes. Good luck!

    Good luck! You can do it! You also might want to check into getting the La Tortilla Factory Low Carb Tortillas. They are high in fiber, high in protein, and only 50 calories for the small ones. The larger ones have 100 calories. I like them better than bread, and in fact I crave sandwiches made that way now. But then I grew up eating white bread and prefer the taste of that, not a big fan of whole grain bread even though I know it's healthier and would be better for my blood sugar.

    I agree - you can do this!

P.S. I don't think you're a "bad girl" for making choices that aren't in your best interest!! Please be careful how you think about yourself, my friend :)
