Jeannie Wagner replied to Alon Levi's discussion 'Type-2 carb counting?'
"For Type 2's not on insulin carb counting is used to keep bgs in range after meals 120-140. By frequent 1 and 2 hour testing you can find how sensitive you are to certain carbs. It is really a trial and error process and e eventually you know…"

Jeannie Wagner replied to Nicole's discussion 'Carb Calculations on Recipes'

Jeannie Wagner replied to SamiiiG's discussion 'Low carb info'
"The best way to cut your carbs is to set a carb limit for each meal or snack. For example I know at breakfast I need to keep my meal below 3 carbs or I will spike above 120. At lunch I have more leeway and can handle 15 carbs. Dinner is usually…"

"Hi, I was dx'd about 5 years ago and I was 148. I am about 120, now. I take metformin and it works if I stay under 10 carbs per meal. If I go over that I will spike very high. The metformin has helped me with the liver dumps. I find if I eat…"

Hi Jeannie

Thanks for the heads up on your soluble fiber post seems chia seeds are just as good as pyllium flax is also a good source of muilage fiber which is what I am looking for not as good as psyllium but a good plant source coconut oil; sun flower seeds sounds like good advice I'll be supplementing my diet to your recommendations
