Hey there folks,
I was just recently diagnosed as type 1 diabetic <7-22-2010>
Basically I went into DKA and spent 4 days in the ICU, and learned
I was type 1.
Well before I went into the hospital, my diet was horrible.
I work at a sandwhich shop, so I'd eat all sorts of chips, cookies
all at random times, I never really ate a proper meal. and all I really ate was junk.
So far since I've been out of the hospital I've actually been keeping a very regular
eating schedule <breakfast 7:30, lunch 1:30, Dinner 8:00> and not really eating
snacks at all.
I'm really trying to start anew and keep my diabetes in check, I'm not
totally new to diabetes. My older brother has been type 1 since he was 2, and my mother
has been type 2 for about 12 years now.
so far I've calculated that I need about 2200 calories a day, with a max of 250g of carbs
Mostly I have access to deli meats, all sorts of salad vegetables, breads
pretty much anything you find at a local deli...or subway...
I have some money to spend on food, but most comes from work.
would anyone have any good diet suggestions a 2200 calorie diet,
I'd really love some advice, I'm all new to the carb/cal counting deal
pretty much new to actually paying attention to my health.
