OK I a familiar with Bernstein's, know a little about Barnard's, and some of the Paleo diet. I will admit to be a bit of a Tree Hugger DIY type and my wife is a bit more so. Well my wife has decided to cut out all processed foods, well I find this a noble idea I also am very pragmatic. This means cutting out Crystal Lite and diet soda, two staples of my diet, I'm not looking forward to just drinking water. And the meal plans she has worked out tend to be very carb heavy. Well I love the 100 or so carbs I allow myself a day, it would be under 80 if I didn't have to carb up at work(physical job). They idea of having red beans and rice or rice loaf being the main staples of my diet scares me. I know I can do things like lettuce wraps.
I have suggested doing a local/small business diet but she seems set on the no processed/minimal plan, sigh no more bacon. I already have cut out 99% HFC and most anything with added sugar except for a weekly or biweekly treat. Guess I am just nervous about having a higher carb intake when I am down to under 10 units of novolog a day and my A1c is at a 5.7. Any idea or thoughts on this?
