Spark sticks to the party line and thier recommendation for carbs is way too high for most diabetics. So, no, I do not think that you bombed out on your day......

There are many people here on Spark who believe in low carb eating, some subscribe to low fat, but many agree that fat is necessary and eat much more that Spark recommends.

Have you been to a diabetic Nutritionist? If not, ask your doctor for a referral, and whatever she and your doctor recommend, that is what you should aim for. It may be higher than Spark on the fat, or lower on the carb, whatever, but you should follow the instructions of your medical team.....

As long as you are in your calorie range you should be okay. You did your best, keep up the good work.

HI . I found some suggestions on Sparks in an article today about Chinese. So, I ordered Moo Goo Guy Pan - steamed. It had chicken and LOTS of oil or stir fried stuff. But all the steamed veges were sooo good that I ate 2 cups instead of one. Plus Sparks suggested Egg Drop Soup (4 oz).

When I checked my Daily Nutrition report I was 18% over the suggested Fat and under 13% for the suggested Carbs for the day.. I worked hard to find something to eat there via Sparks.

What do these numbers mean? Did I ruin my whole day? What's going to happen to my weight loss for a day like this?
