So far I like the new plan, and I like that carbs are included in the calcs. Even though I have Type 1, I do fit fruit into my meals. We shall see, the proof will be if I actually lose the 10 pounds I gained with menopause! On the old plan, I was allowed so few points, it was just painful and not doable. On this plan, I am not using all of my points. Basically, by being accountable and tracking (I use etools and the iPhone app) I have really gotten my blood sugar in better control. That is so worth it.
