Welcome, Have you talked to your doctor about seeing a diabetes educator/nutritionist? Even one session with someone familiar with diabetes could set you on the right path.

If that's not an option, do some research yourself on pre-diabetes. Regardless of whether you are pre-, Type I, or Type II diabetic, you need to monitor your carb intake.

Sparkpeople has a diabetes diet plan. You can set your tracker to on of those plans, and it will help you keep track of your carbs. It has the recommended carb limit for each meal and snack, and you can log your blood glucose numbers if you're tracking them.

Do a search at the to of the page for "diabetes plan" or click on the link below. There's lots of good information for you. You will have to decide which plan to follow, but this will give you the basics.

Welcome! Maybe ONE nutrition system isn't the answer. Maybe it's taking the parts from those nutrition guidelines you've used and make up your OWN system!

For myself I do Low Carb, Moderate Fat and that keeps my diabetes in check (along w/exercise).

so choose the nutrition plan that you can stick to, tweak if you need to and EXERCISE.

Love is the root of all things good in life.

I just wanted to introduce myself. I am Lynna and I just joined yesterday after hearing great things about the site and the people who are here. I am 59 and I work in a library system as an Extension Clerk III and on the Bookmobile. I have been on my job 22 years and hope to retire in 3 years if all goes well (and I can learn to be home with my hubby 24/7). I am pre diabetic and 80 pounds over weight now. My highest weight ever was 305 and now I am 240. But, I gave up for several years and now I have a real reason to lose and eat properly. It is hard to decide which diet to use, Weight Watchers, low carb but I have trouble counting all the carbs or just count calories, 1200 daily. Any suggestions as to which direction has worked best for others would be appreciated. Also, I have two grown sons, a husband of 1.5 years and a cat that I adore. emoticon
