Wow. I can't eat Cheerios at all - they kill my BG's. I miss my honey-nut cheerios, lol.

As for bananas... you are lucky. I can eat about 1/2 a banana post-workout, but that's the only time I can enjoy that particular fruit.

Boy, are you lucky, I guess. I sure can't have banana or basically any fruit but a few berries and no cereal or milk for sure. I eat yogurt for my calcium, but never in the morning when I am so carb sensitive, only as a snack or such and I sure can't dare even breathe the dust from cereals. But then, my goal for my blood sugar is between 85-120 and never over 140 1 hour post meal.

Different strokes for different folks? I have some neuropathy in my feet and want to reverse it if possible and don't want it any worse for sure.

Why egg whites? Fats are the backbone of a low carb/high fat way of eating. Or maybe you aren't doing that way of 'beating' your blood sugar?

Well, for what it's worth, mine dropped like a rock after I began Atkins and my cardiologist told me it would...and, it's staying down now just fine.

This way of eating is easy too, after you get the 'hang' of it...and, 90 days would be a good way to see what effect it has on you...and, for you and your other conditions...fortunately I didn't see a dietician so I didn't have my head messed with...but then, I've had more time to learn what I can believe and what I can't!

My non-diabetic husband has been eating my low-carb/high-fat diet for the last year or two, and his cholesterol really dropped - here's a chart of his readings from several years past up to this year. We were stunned - had NOT expected so much improvement! http://i110.photobucket.com/albums/n118/Daily_Family/lipidscew.jpg
