auriga1, when I found out that I have T2 doctor sent me to see a dietitian. Put me on a 45 carb diet. Told me I can have all the vegies and meat I want. Nice. But I cracked a smile when I saw the yogurt. I found one that I really like. It's called Carb Master. Has four carbs to it and three grams of sugar. It's put out by Kroger. Talked to the dietitian and he was happy I found it. Said perfect for me. But I've cut out a lot of things also. I do have a sandwich 100% whole grain for lunch. Got these wheat tortillias that are very low carbs and sugars. Throw a couple small pieces of ham and egg into it and can use that as breakfast or dinner. I have my fruit consiting of two strawberries quartered, a tad bit of blackberries and blueberries. Good to go. I've gone from 229.4 in July of 2012 when I first found out to 179.2 as of last Friday. BS fluxes but still within a good range. Think the max lately was 137 but that was two hours after eating also.Took reading just for the heck of it. But mostly form the middle nineties to maybe a max of 113 or 118 depending. Sometimes hovers in the 105 ranges. But all in all much better than when I first found out. Both the doctor and dietitian have been happy with me. Still on my meds. Took a long time to get the wife to see the reasoning behind my measuring and counting. At first she just couldn't get through that part. But now at times she'll fix something for me and I can her her counting 1,2,3...15. And she don't cheat me either. Well, a couple times she's short changed me but mostly pretty good on the count. Been lucky so far. Just hope to remain so and not give up. All of us knows what a pain it is to watch everything we put in our fork/spoons. And the times we look at something with our mouths watering. But in the long run worth the will power. Right? And like my dietitian told me, Mrs. Dash has become a great friend of mine when time for cooking. Goes good on eggs, meat etc. But DO NOT PUT IN GRITS!!!! Grits just don't taste right with Mrs. Dash in them in place of salt. So have given up the grits. View Thread
