Thanks everyone ~ it is interesting and helpful to see all your responses. I feel like I'm doing pretty good and don't want to over-think it but it is a learning process. Best to all of us!

BRATS4 ~ My doc didn't tell me a carb/protein/fats range but he referred me to a dietician. I met with her for an hour and she gave me materials and we discussed a nutrition plan for me. That was so helpful 'cause I was so afraid to eat much of anything after my diagnosis of diabetes. I'm still learning how and what to eat. I can get my carbs down but the fats and proteins are usually too high. I'm working on it. Man, have I become a label reader. It takes a commitment ~ but I know I am worth it! So are you! Check with your doc about a referral to a dietician ~ or check with your local hospital ~ mine offered it as a free community service. I was shocked! And pleased!

Do what your doctor or dietician told you. I have found that the Spark recommendations do NOT agree with what my dietician has told me.

Unfortunately, the ratio of carbs/protein/fats can NOT be adjusted in the diabetic program. This is a flaw in Spark's system that I have raised earlier.

Cheers,
Catherine

The last time I saw my Dr before he died, he told me that the diabetic diet was for people who are on insulin and I have to keep my carbs lower. I try to limit mine to 20 to 30 carbs per meal. I generally do I low carb diet.

I have noticed that the lower setting is slightly higher, but the upper setting is lower, thus meaning we have to be more careful about staying in the right range as a diabetic. In particular I noticed that the lower setting for protein did go up, but the upper setting is definitely lower. I suspect this has to do with the protective mechanism of protein for diabetics, but also making sure we don't get too much to protect our kidneys.

Maintaining.

Since my nutrition page changed to the Diabetes Nutrition Plan, my daily goal calories, carbs, fats and proteins have increased. My dietician told me to try to stick to around 60 carbs per morning meal/snack, 60 carbs per lunch meal/snack and 60-75 per evening meal/snack. I assume these numbers are based on my age and weight? Please advise. Thanks! Susie
