This is what I ate yesterday:
Breakfast - 1 coffee (with 2 milk)
Mid Morning Snack - Handful of Pistachios and 1 coffee (with 2 milk)
Lunch - Spinach salad (with spinach, mustard, goat cheese, mushrooms, tomato) and 1 coffee (with 2 milk)
Mid afternoon - Handful of Pistachios
Supper - one pork chop, cup of cauliflower with 1/4 cup melted cheddar
Pre-bedtime - Glass of red wine

So what's your guess-timate? Is this low carb?

You would think someone living with diabetes as long as I have would have the whole calorie carb thing figured out but instead I stay away from the foods that spike my BGS or require a significant greater amount of insulin.
My Fitness Pal. That's what I use.

As for what is, or is not, low-carb: different people think different things. Dr. Richard K. Bernstein, author of The Diabetes Solution, recommends eating no more than 30 grams of carbs a day (counting a gram of fiber as 1/2 a gram of carb); I'm comfortable at 40-80, with about a quarter of that as fiber.
