Hi all. So, the doctor hit me with this bombshell about a week ago, and it spun me out a lot, I guess everyone can relate to that. I did some research online (yes, I know, relying on "Dr" Google isnt a good idea!), but there are loads of qualified doctors out there with there own advice about diabetes, especially diet. I took my prescription to the pharmacy, and asked the pharmacist for advice, and he pointed me to this site. So, I just signed up, and headed to the food advice section....and got a shock... a lot of foods I was told to avoid (a lot of fruits, pasta, potatoes, oats etc) are actually in the recipes/meals that this site says are good to eat??? Am I just going too hard at it by trying to avoid most carbs and sugars?
