Cricket....thanks, I am really glad someone tried it! I am a yogurt hater from way back.....then late in life I started working for a Swedish company. One time when flying to Stockholm on British Airways, they served Greek Yogurt for breakfast, along with some 'mystery' meat and 'powdered eggs'....forcing me to eat that darn yogurt. Then I tasted it....it was my Mom's home made Tapioca all over again.

Since I have been on LCHF, I am always searching for something quick and good to eat that meets with my low carb goals....WaaaLah, I found and tried some to this 'diet' Greek Yogurt that everyone is talking about....and if you are careful when you shop, you can find it in low carb! Perfect breakfast for me with HWC coffee.....

Hope others enjoy also....I am working on homemade custard based ice cream loaded with egg yolks and HWC and artificial sweeteners...so when I find the right mix, according to my meter...I will share!

OMGoodness, I just LOVE the Dannon Light & Fit Greek yogurt. I have it with breakfast every AM. I don't do "low-carb" per se but a lower-carb than what I was eating before diagnosis.

Yeah, I don't know. . . Yoghurt is 19g, 27g in a banana, 14g in the v8, 11g each Wasa (22g total). Grand total. . . 82g!

I'm not at the point where I'm trying to reduce my insulin. Clearly, if I reduce my carbs, I'd have to do something in that regard.

Bear also in mind, I'm not trying to lose weight. I remain 6'-5" and 185 pounds.

fatt-Dad....Ok I just thought that meal was a bit unusual for us diabetics...but that is just me...

So you must be taking fast acting insulin prior to having a meals to offset the carb intake? I have not had to go to that type of insulin, as I only take one shot before bed of 26u, slow acting it is...

Good Luck

Hi D2L,

I'm still in my honeymoon. LADA progresses slowly, or so I'm told. I only take Lantus after dinner (17 units). I seem to have pancreatic function for the ups and downs - to some degree. My suspicion is if I don't take insulin I'll wobble between 350 and 450 (i.e., my pre-diagnosis range) and if I take insulin I'll wobble between 70 and 170.

When the setup changes, I'll likely have three choices - lower carbs, increase insulin, both.

I must also admit, diabetes is a confusing word. All my experience is with type 1 (i.e, our daughter). I really do not quite know all there is to type 2 diabetes. Press seems to make it out that if you are good, you won't get it. Folks maybe eat their way to type 2, etc. Doubt it's really like that. Expect there are all sorts of other factors, etc. Don't really know, but I'm enjoying this fellowship as in time I'll know more.

I just know that metformin did nothing for me. Went to the endo and my test showed some form of type 1. I had read and she had mentioned LADA.

Blood Sugar 101 is a great site for learning about diabetes - both T1 and T2. But probably more of an emphasis on T2. The author does the research and we have learned to trust what she presents.

Scroll down a bit on the home page and you'll find a couple articles that debunk the idea that people eat their way to being diabetic.
