Thumbs up The Diet that is working for me!

I'm a Certified Pharmacy Technician and licenced in the state of New Jersey. This is fancy for saying I'm not as trained as a pharmacist but I have to do continuing education credits every 2 years... 30 of them to be exact. I'm diabetic so I do a lot of my credits on that but I have done some on dieting. In a nutshell... my training says STAY FAR AWAY from HCG and all those other fad diets. They don't work especially long term.

I did however find something that DOES work. Simple. Eat like a diabetic! I've lost 3 dress sizes since I was diagnosed last year. My meals are no more than 35-40 grams of Carbohydrates per meal and no more than 15-20 grams per snack. I eat every 2-3 hours which is hard when riding (I cheat on this part and don't eat as often as I'm supposed to but I pay for it when my blood sugar crashes!) Things that you MUST remove from your diet: White breads, starches especially potatoes!!, sugars (no brainer for a diabetic!), and junk food. You'd be surprised what you can and can't eat. For example: Watermelon is a big no-no while any kind of berries I can eat all I want of because they're very low on the glycemic index. My boyfriend and I have found wheat pizza which I'm allowed to have a little of as long as I have a salad first. I don't feel deprived of anything and often feel too full to eat a full portion of some things. I used to be able to eat 1/2 of a pizza but now I can eat only 1 or maybe 2 slices if I'm really hungry. Another secret if you're a pasta lover... there's a brand out there called Dreamfield farms. The label says around 40 carbs per serving but only 5 are digestible. This means I can actually eat Ziti, Lasagne, etc. again!!! While it takes a bit longer to lose weight, it's healther!! Plus you learn habits that last a lifetime and run less risk of reverting back to old habits and gaining the weight again.

Absolutely! I am not a big meal person - I am eating every couple of hours during the day, and have pretty much cut out white carbs... Surprisingly, I don't miss bread at all. I used to eat 2 slices every morning in a brekkie sandwich (turkey bacon, a fried (with no oil) egg, two slices of wheat toast) - I found if I cut the bread, I could add another egg and feel fuller longer. :) We eat salads or two greens with any protein now instead of rice or potatoes.
