Have you been to a diabetes education class, or will your doctor give you a referral to a registered dietician? If not, ask for it. The dietician will work with you for your specific situation. You can print out your nutrition tracker to bring with you.

Have you checked out the diet plans offered through SP? I set myself up with one for diabetes control though they have ones for other health conditions. The plan tells you what to eat for meals and snacks. If it's a food you don't like or shouldn't eat you can click on the meal or the food and substitute. If you are concerned your doctor/dietitian wouldn't approve you are able to print out the week menu to show.
Just a thought, it's really helped me get control of what I'm eating though maybe I haven't controlled it as strictly as you.

How I wish I knew of a solution to this as it happens to me too. I've lost a lot of weight but my MD wants tighter control on m BS and in doing it, my weight has gone up. I feel crappy a lot of times with light headedness, the shakes and clammy feeling. I eat something and it goes away. However these bits of eating when I really don't want it are starting to add up. I liked it better when my sugar was a bit higher and I felt better. It's such a balancing act and so hard to get right.
I have always have this problem start a diet or just get better glucose control and pick up weight instead of loosing. Have never made it past this, other than cutting more calories or ramping up exercise any solutions?
