I'm not diabetic either, but I do have metabolic issues. For that reason, I've been on a diet prescribed by my doctor. I'm only allowed gluten free bread and no other starches. Other than a couple of slices a day, my only other carbs come from fruits and non-starchy vegetables. I don't eat anything sweetened either, although I'm allowed to use stevia and xylitol.
I've been doing this for two months now and my cravings are gone. Before, I was hungry all of the time and not losing any weight. So for me, smart carbing is eating clean, organic whole foods. It's eliminating processed foods and artificial sweeteners.
My doc stresses that we need to eat foods from god, not from man. If it comes in a box, don't eat it.
As Unicorn suggested, it would be well worth it to check out the diabetes groups and look for free sources of meds. Your body has the power to heal itself, but it will take time. You are on the right track, so stick with it and you will love the results! Good luck!
Remember, nobody can go back to the very beginning and make a brand new start, but anyone can start here and make a brand new end.
There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results."
