div2live, PhoenixFire is newly diagnosed and following the dietary instructions she was given (you remember your "diabetes education", right? ).

Of the three, cottage cheese is by far the most benign; whole-fat cottage cheese (without the binders and starches that cheaper brands add) could fit easily into a LCHF way of eating.

But your post is a good illustration to PhoenixFire that the standard dietary advice doesn't necessarily serve people with diabetes. Thanks.

Sorry, I only speak from my experiences! Cottage Cheese blows my BS up! It is a no, no for me....I do not take much advice that my diabetic educators said to me.....she was a loon!

Test to be sure....

Good Luck
Bean salad and cheese and crackers were listed on a diabetes site as good snacks. But, since coming here, it looks like a lot of false info is on the net???

Right now, I'm just focused on staying off junk food and cutting back on over-snacking and large portions. I haven't seen my blood sugar go to 14 so it's a start. I've been having three meals a day and a snack in the morning, afternoon and before bed (which is a lot less that I used to eat...)

mbuster, VeeJay and div2live like this.
