I'm diabetic, and started low carb a little more than 3 years ago. I eat onions, tomatoes, mushrooms normally. I can have green beans, but rarely do. After 1 year of eating this way I got off ALL diabetes meds, and my last A1C was 5.1. My doctor said I won't have to test more than once a year now. This is because mine is lower than hers..lol
Plus it allows you to eat more veggies which help with nutrients, which gives you energy. A lot of low carbers eat any vegetable, and just eat smaller amounts. They tend to be tired all the time.
P.S. I didn't mention greens, because I am on Coumadin. They are great choices though
