i really am and always have been a horrible gobbler of food and if the food is healthy i will even eat more of it. you are supposed to eat handfuls of meat, carbs and twice more of vegetables, greens, leafy foods.
six weeks ago i had high blood sugar at 9.7 which is almost diabetic. So I have been on a new lifestyle and eating from the Canada food guide, which is great but it is the PORTION of foods that is so important. I have no problem exercising everyday but it is the small portions that I am finding difficult.
I have lost 11 pounds, and not because I am watching my weight, specifically, it is just that I am so busy testing my blood sugar 3 times a day. The normal blood sugar when you get up in the morning (fasting blood sugar should be between the numbers 4 and 5). I finally got it down to 5.7 yesterday morning and thought yahoo!
I saw a nutrtionist and registered dietician about 3 weeks ago and it was very helpful and took away some fears of diabetes. Because I have Type 2 diabetes right now and I will always have it. But this kind of diabetes can be controlled.
these are my tools and I really love the recipes in this Better Homes and Gardens magazine my friend gave me
