"Seems the more I try and stock semi-better for us foods, the more junk she brings home, BTW I do the regular grocery shopping.
I have been having a time with stocking the frig/freezer. MY wIFe has been bringing home JUNK, big bags of french toast frozen, waffles and pancakes galore, hardly room for me to store what I like or should eat. Oh muffins galore, fresh cider, had some for breakfast today, donuts you name it."
I had a similar experience although not quite as high sugar; mine was 491. I was started on 2 diabetes medications & was handed an 1800 calorie/day diet (with drug ads on each page). I did some research & found that just because a doctor says you need drugs, doesn't mean it's true. I've been following an eating & lifestyle program I found on the web (www.drfuhrman.com ) & haven't used any medication since 1-09 & have lost the extra 70 lbs I was carrying. My high blood pressure & high lipids also became normal in 3 months & my A1c has been at 6.0 ever since.
In my opinion, too many doctors assume their patients don't have the self discipline to make changes & besides, writing prescriptions makes for a much shorter & simpler visit.View Thread
I found these yesterday & tried one today with lunch. I think they taste much better than those low carb tortillas while being almost as low in carbs. 16 Carbs, 5 gms fiber, 8 gms protein. They're made by "French Meadow Bakery." (www.frenchmeadow.com )View Thread
