Look into almond flour. 4 grams of carbohydrate per quarter cup. All purpose flour is 23 carbs.

Reminds me of an old country song - "Don't Cry Down My Back Baby, You might Rust My Spurs."

You can adjust your vision of normal and live a happy life, or you can dwell on the wrong idea of normal and go insane. Your choice. Have your cry and get on with life. We all did.

Many of the foods we craved as non diabetics are really bad for us. So even all those non diabetics eating the pizzas, cereals, chips, donuts, pretzels, etc are not doing themselves a big favor. When I started to control the carbs I ate on a regular basis a funny thing happened. All my extra mid life weight seemed to drop off. I am at my college weight, now. So all those foods I craved were keeping my belly plump. People who see me now can't believe how different I look than 10 years ago. For me Diabetes was a blessing.

The quicker you accept diabetes the faster your health will recover.

If you really think about it, is a french fry worth all this anger.

Welcome to the forum. I can understand your anger. I get angry at times myself when I see the food I want to eat, but won't. It's hard to change your perspective on life right when we are use to eating and living one way. It takes awhile to do that. But I know that you can do it. Like everyone else here, we have to for our health. For me, I found that changing the way I look at certain things has helped me. For instance, I use to say "I can't have that." Now I try to remember to say. "I choose not to eat that." I feel like it gives me a bit more control over my situation. I hope you feel better soon. There is a lot of support here, and I am grateful that I found this site.

Believe me I do understand at times. Went to our neighborhood Christmas party just last night. The main dish, Lasagna, my old time fav. I ate 2 large plates of salad, shrimp, cold cuts and a dessert I brought with me. Low carb Blue berry pie made out of Greek Yogurt and jello. Every one loved it. The party was full of Diabetics that do not watch what they eat.

It is okay to be angry; it is okay to vent your anger; it is okay to rant, cry, pound your fists, blame whoever you want, but remember in the end it is your choice to take care of yourself. Nobody else can do it for you. If you make the choice to lead a healthy diabetic life, then get all that grieving out of the way and pull yourself up by your boot straps and get on with it. I know exactly how you feel; and for too long I ignored my diabetes. Thank God it did not do any horrible damage or lead to horrible complications for me. I decided to get serious when my doctor told me if I continued the way I was going at that time, I would beat my Mother to the grave. My Mom died from end stage renal failure, due to diabetes Type 2. She was only 66 years old. At the time the doctor said this to me I was 47 years old. That meant I would have less than 20 years left to my life? If that? I have two beautiful daughters who I want to see finish college, get married, and give me grandkids! I want to be able to play with those grandkids! Enough was enough. But, I made that choice. Nobody made it for me. I had to make it otherwise I would have continued on my downhill slide to the grave. Perhaps without fingers, toes, eyesight, kidney's, and other diabetic horrors. It didn't play out very well in my head, so I changed. And I'm very happy I did. Once you get over missing carbs and start eating healthy LC/HF WOE, you won't even miss those carbs. I have indulged once or twice in things I should not eat, and you know what? They didn't even taste that great anymore. I was like "I ate this carby treat that is horrible for me and it didn't even satisfy what I thought I was missing."
So, get your tantrum over with, and get on with your life. This is not a death sentence. It is diabetes. You can control it, eat healthy and delicious foods, and stick around for a long time. Keep your eye on the prize (whatever it is for you). You'll get there. And, we are all here to help you. Hugs! It will get better, we all promise!
