Hey, Spud . . . welcome to DF! You have excellent powers of perception in recognizing so soon that the advice from the dietitian is leading you the wrong direction. Yep - I'd cut out the carbs completely, and I think it won't matter how many times a day you eat or what size the meal. Just build your menus from proteins & fats, and your BG will drop like a rock. Carbs are NOT a necessity - our body can process the glucose it needs - even for brain cells - from other sources. We won't dry up & waste away without carbs, I promise!
Without knowing your size, gender, age, activity level, etc., two eggs for breakfast would be fine if they're accompanied by a few strips of bacon or links of sausage!
My breakfast often consists of three link sausages and one egg-over-easy. But I'm an overweight sedentary 65-year-old woman.
If you prowl our boards here, you'll get an idea of how most of us eat . . . and it isn't identical menus, because some of us are type 2 and others are type 1 . . . and some of our type 2s are insulin-dependent, others of us, like you and me, are not. But most of us eat to our meters. Testing around our meals teaches us which foods send our bg too high, and those foods are then limited/avoided.
Ask all the questions you want . . . there's a whole crew here just waiting to give you their ideas! So glad you found us, and thank you for joining us!
p.s. Just a little clarification about getting your veggies - that's where the carbs are . . . but anything high-fiber like cabbage/kale/broccoli/cauliflower, dark leafy greens like spinach/romaine/etc., asparagus, artichokes, etc., will be excellent choices, and don't spare the butter, dip, or hollandaise sauce. Using full-fat foods like butter, cream, sour cream & mayonnaise will keep you from feeling hungry and give the protein menus some real pizzazz.
