When my husband was diagnosed I went to Barnes and Noble and browsed through the diabetic Magazine section, it was a joke.....I laughed and went back home.

I also mostly just post here except for maybe reading a blog here and there and once in awhile an article on that start page that may interest me. Of course using the nutrition tracker also.

That was one nasty, gooey, disgusting recipe, Bearclaw! I'm amazed at what people will eat and call "healthy"... If I go off the range and eat something stupid, at the very least I know it's stupid! LOL

My Friday is lovely - I'm off work, cleaning house like a madwoman, and then picking up my MIL for a visit. We're going to have a low-key evening here catching up on the last six years we missed while her son and my ex was married for a second time... When that came apart (#2 quit paying the mortgage 10 months before he found out - he travels a lot), my MIL decided she gets me back in her life and that makes me very happy. I can even be friends with my ex! :)

Off to clean and de-dog the car!

Marshmallow cream? Holy carp!

Glad to see you back Bearclaw, missed you.

I mostly hang out here, but occasionally carry the flag out onto the community boards. Oddly, Becky doesn't seem to feel the need to address me, even when I ask her a question.

Yes. Two cups of sugar is not a big deal. Just up your meds and off you go!

Nice to see you back Bearclaw!

I realize SP in general is low carb hostile, but I don't go much further than this team anyway. (If I want to listen to foolish people rant I just go play World of Warcraft and read the Trade and General chat channels instead. I'd rather hear a million Chuck Norris jokes than get "corrected" by Becky Hand once.)

Having a slightly better workday today. Still not getting MUCH done, but at least getting SOMETHING done.

Don't tell me what you believe; show me what you do and I will tell you what you actually believe.

But all that sugar, albeit "natural" - ugh.

On the other hand, I have seen so-called diabetic recipes that call for white rice as a side dish. how writes this stuff, pharmaceutical companies that sell insulin?

I'm afraid I don't get your point, BearClaw. Of course it's diabetic. After all, it calls for dried fruit instead of candied fruit!

Greetings. I've been gone a while (mostly just due to frustration with SP being so low-carb unfriendly).

Here's a funny thing I just got. As a joke, my wife bought me a magazine called 'Low-Carb Cooking" that is put out by the editors of 'Diabetic Living". The cover features lasagna! The magazine is filled with recipes with recipes that the diabetic community apparently consider low carb. One example is the ingredients list for White Fruitcake Fudge:

3/4 cup chopped walnuts
3/4 cup dried apricots
2/3 cup raisins
1 t butter
2 CUPS sugar
3/4 cup sour cream
1/2 cup butter
12 oz white baking chocolate
1 7-oz jar marshmallow creme

Now that would definitely qualify me for being a reader of diabetic literature!

October 2010: 345 lbs
October 2011: 215 lbs
October 2012: 215 lbs
October 2013: 251 lbs (Doh, time to get back on track)

As a famous ancient philospher once mused..."Eat a steak, not a cake!"

Don't be active to lose weight, lose weight to be active!
