Hello - Here is what I can offer. The end of September my A1C was 6.4. I am 5 foot tall, 45 yr old female, and weighed 183.I am trying to lose weight as well as my BS how many carbs does your body need daily to do this? I saw someone eats 50-60 daily is this a good amount? please help.
I have been following the plan that I was given at DE classes. For ME, that meant 1400 calories per day, 3 meals - 2 snacks. It meant 45 grams of carbs per meal and 15 per snack.
MANY people think that this is way too many carbs. BUT, in 3 months time I have lost 11 pounds and my A1C - 2 weeks ago was 5.9. THIS WAS WITH NO MEDS!!
So, I have to stay on the band wagon that says you NEED some carbs. The body's preferred fuel is carbs and you need some to stay as healthy as possible.
