When I was first diagnosed, my doctor gave me a little booklete with do's and don'ts. I followed it very strictly for about four weeks before "testing" other things. My typical day starts with either grape nuts, plain shredded wheat, plain Cherrios, or the Kashi Cinnamon Harvest cereal with milk or plain yogurt (I sweeten with dextrose and/or aspartame. My lunches are usually leftovers from the night before. For dinners I make meaty dishes (I have a couple of recipies in my "cookbook"). I only eat a half cup of veggies (usually broccoli, brussels sprouts, green beens, asparagus, or spinach) a day. For snacks I eat a lot of cheese, yogurt (either plain yogurt that I sweeten/flavor myself, Dannon naturals vanilla coffee or lemon flavor, or Archer Farms boston cream pie, vanilla, or lemon flavor), sugar free instant pudding, sugar free Jell-O, Triscuit crackers, saltine crackers, natural peanutbutter (no honey or molasses...I use Skippy), pistachio nuts, pumpkin seeds, and plain or cheddar and sour cream potato chips. With everything from the triscuits on you really have to watch portion size. Those are all in moderation only type things. I don't know if that will help you at all, but I hope it does. It isn't any fun being sick!

Nothing like a little learning experience, right?

So this weekend, our plans were pretty up in the air. I've never really liked winging it in the first place, but with being on a special diet and all, it makes it even harder. I packed a cooler with enough food to keep me sustained (if not balanced nutritionally) for a week. Unfortunatly, we made plans, I didn't take my cooler with me at one point because we would be coming right back, we didn't end up coming right back, and I ended up at my sister-in-law's for supper, where everything that had been prepared was on a no-no list. I was starving, so I ate anyway. I must say, I enjoyed it, too. Then she brought out a made from scratch German chocolate cake! I broke down. I decided, I already ate stuff to make me suffer, I might as well really enjoy it! So I ate a pice of cake. BAD!!!! Later that night, I was reminded as to why I'm on this diet, and what I used to feel like all of the time. Now that I know what it's like to feel good, I really didn't like feeling bad. So...I enjoyed my cake, and I also gave myself a little motivation to resist it next time around! Have any of you had similar experiences?
