Hi, Timmy. When the doctor sent me forth from her office seven weeks ago to await an appointment with an endocrinologist, she told me to eat 1200 calories a day and "low carb." So I started looking up carb counts on everything and immediately stopped eating bread. I switched to a 100-calorie, 17-carb tortilla wrap to make sandwiches for lunch. I also was eating more salads and nuts, eggs, meats. I started selecting low-carb dressings with one to five carbs.
A big issue I found was that about two hours after my tortilla wrap lunch, I was starving. Painfully hungry. After three weeks and giving up that one wrap per day -- which was my only wheat product left -- my numbers immediately went from the mid-200s to the mid-100s. And I no longer experienced hunger pains in the afternoon. The only thing that changed was losing the wrap.
