How did I miss that we were in the same DDC? ~smile~
I'm seeing a nutritionist tomorrow... if she gives me any other suggestions besides the standard "meat, eggs, cheese", I will definitely post 'em here. Apparently there's also a danger of having too FEW carbs, so maybe you can find something that works for you? The carbs for the day that the nurse practitioner suggested were broken out as follows:
Breakfast - 30g
AM Snack - 15g
Lunch - 45g
PM Snack - 15g
Dinner - 45g
Bedtime Snack - 30g
Hopefully you can find something more than nuts... I've been doing chicken salad sandwiches for lunches, adding LOTS of veggies to the salad. Seems to be ok so far in terms of post-meal numbers.
Wow, that's a pretty strict diet. My diabetic diet gives me one more serving of carbs at each meal/snack, so 15 grams more each. It works for me, but I'm not very insulin resistant this time. I can totally tell if I've eaten more than my share of carbs. Had Chinese the other night and while I thought I was doing well avoiding the noodles and only having a small portion of rice, I forgot about the hidden carbs in the sauces. My sugar was up to 159 2 hours after that meal - yikes!
I love eggs, cheese and meat though so it's really not been a huge deal for me to avoid too many carbs. My body responds much better if I have a healthy portion of protein when I eat carbs, too. So nut butters with a graham cracker do me good
