Welcome to the forum. I hope you (and your wife) will read the info provided in the links. It can be quite difficult sometimes to realize that what we (as a society) have been told for years about carbs and fat is incorrect. I had a hard time at first myself, because I was so conditioned to avoid fats and other foods that I thought were bad for me.

However, I can tell you that by following the LCHF way of eating, I have brought my blood sugar numbers down. A side benefit is that I am losing weight at a steady, slow rate of about 2 lbs per month, without really trying. I do not count calories but I do count carbs. I hope you will give it a try at least, and see the results for yourself.

Welcome aboard, I am a 65 year old male who found this website in May of this year. I have been diabetic for a little over 8 years. I had problems last year maintaining my sugars and finally that lead me to this site.

After reading all the suggested material and doing my own research, I decided to follow the eating plan recommended here. We all eat Low Carbs and High Fats....I target less then 50 carbs per day! I eat lots of fat with every meal, butter, coconut oil, whipping cream, cheese, steak, pork, bacon, eggs, etc. I eat nothing with sugar in it, nothing with any grains, no root crops, no fruit except may a few blue berries or black berries, if my 'meter says it is ok, etc. etc.

If you do the reading you will understand how the fat works to cover the lack of carbs and in doing so we maintain wonderful blood sugar levels, and for those of us that need to lose weight, that happens also! What is not to like. No counting calories or ever being hungry and after the first couple of weeks my cravings for carbs stopped! Hell is was like magic!

My last check up in July my A1c was 6.0 (I will be in the 5% club next month), my weight down 30lbs. (no exercise yet), blood pressure 125/75, cholesterol best I have been since I was 40, my doctor was astonished!

This plan works, it is easy to follow and all you need can be learned on the websites noted above. Read, learn, and give it a try!

by the way for us diabetics, carbs is carbs! No difference between complex or simple carbs, they blow up our sugars and thus damage our bodies!

Good Luck
