Default Freshly diagnosed

Hi I'm Stefanie. Found out I am Type 1 diabetic 2.5 months ago. I am fairly fit and eat quite healthy so it was a bit of a shocker. Now that my dosages are set and my BG levels are good I feel so grateful I found out out and have another chance to live life with energy again. My biggest questions lie in wondering if what I'm eating is high on the GI index. It Doesn't list everything and seems to conflict from one to another. Also can I eat even the smallest taste of real sugar ever again? Like one price of chocolate, or just the mock stuff forever? What about mixed ingredient dishes like... Hot & sour soup? Or various ethnic foods? Any good resources out there? Thanks for your help. Stef

Stefi, I'm not type 1, but I could tell you that all of life is ahead for you with energy. I don't work well with the GI index. I count more than 30 a day. I don't have a bit of sugar with the exception of MCS"S yeast bread recipe which has to have it for the yeast to work. I can have a square of 85% chocolate when I crave it...which is rare now. Once you give up carbs, you lose the craving and taste for them. It's amazing! there are some great resources, among them, the best I think...Blood Sugar 101 and I don't eat hot and sour soup, but I'm sure there is a good substitute out there. Try Googling it and see, but you may have to use a 'fake' sugar like stevia in it.

Good to meet 'cha and hope you choose to hang with us. We have several Type 1's who will be along soon.
