  • Eating light healthy snack before going out does help keep you not only check diabetes but for you're overall health. Thinking, living and being healthier has many benefits. YAY!
  • Once I began tracking nutrients and not just calories, I was surprised at the amount of carbs I was consuming.
  • I meant to say: be very afraid of the Charlie Mansons of this world!
  • I believe the reason most of us are here is because we are overweight. Some of us are overweight and are diabetic. I fit in the later category. Not eating carbs is NOT the answer for me. Being aware of how my own body reacts to carbs IS the answer. It took time, but I learned which carbs raise my blood sugars, and which do not; and I know that quantity also matters. Keep it Simple, and Keep it Balanced and we could all be perfect beings -- not being perfect is what has brought us to this SP article. My recommendation is to pay no attention to the Charlie Mansons of the world.
  • I really wish someone at SP would become educated about the whys and hows of the #lchf #keto way of eating for diabetics, because people with diabetes could COMPLETELY RESOLVE (not cure, but be able to discontinue ALL MEDS) their diabetes in many cases if they learn NOT TO EAT CARBS. People with insulin resistance and carb addiction can overcome their cravings and addictions and learn how to eat NORMALLY - as in, eat when you're hungry, don't eat when you're not. Like The Maker intended.

    Do some research, folks. The standard "American Diet" is the root of your problem. Start at dietdoctor.com. (I am in no way affiliated with them, BTW, just relearning how to eat.)
  • I am not diabetic and like this need-to-know article. Great for party planning!

    Some great information. I continue to learn.
  • One of my best friends who is diabetic told me that artificially sweetened treats may have sugar alcohols which can be just as bad, if not worse than sugar. Look for sugar alcohol on the nutrition label.
  • Good and informative article. My husband and were taught the carb counting of 15gm per snack meal and 45gm for meals. It works well when eating out.
  • Good article for me, learned stiff I wasn't aware of but it makes sense. Will bookmark for reference til I get it to stick in my head
  • TOMATOCAFEGAL
    PLAN AHEAD!!!!!!!!! YES AND EAT LITTLE AMOUNTS. EAT CAKE BUT NOT THE FROSTING. DRINK LOTS OF WATER OR CLUB SODA.

    I haven't attended a party yet, but was dreading it.
