I have been trying to control my portions for the last few days , and have done pretty good for the most part , and have kept to my goal of eating 6 to 8 fruits and veggies as they are pretty filling , however its the carbs I have to keep lower. I am on the borderline of being diabetic and should keep under 50 carbs per meal, , sometimes this is a real challenge . I do so love to bake and have rice and pasta along with the sweet fruits. This afternoon I baked applesauce oatmeal muffins, as they are made with sugar sub they still have around 30 or 35 carbs per muffin. Beans too are so healthy, however high in carbs as well., and I always want more than one cup. Im wondering if more fiber counteracts the amount of carbs you have so they don't turn to sugar in your system. Someone told me recently that when you have 4 grams of fiber you can minus 4 grams of sugar if so does it work with the carbs that turn to sugar. Anyone have an opinion on the concept? Although I still will try to keep my carbs around 50 per meal its just such a challenge at times. Learning to adjust is a full time plan, but well worth it in the long run I guess.
