I just purchased some Extend bars and the label said that it has 1 gram of net carbs. There is 150 calories per bar, 21 total carbs, 5 grams of fiber, 0 sugar, 6 grams sugar alcohol, 11 grams protein, 1 gram saturated fat. I need to know how to figure out how much insulin to take to cover this. The bar says this it is a low glycemic index and food and it helps to control blood sugar for up to 9 hours. I am trying to cut my carb intake by 1/2. I will be trying out some new foods to help me to cut my carb intake. Also, what is the best type of protein to eat? I can not drink milk because of lactose problems. I will be needing to add some food for snacks but it can not be carbs. I do not like many vegetables. I only eat green beans, salad and V-8 juice. I can eat cheese, cottage cheese and chicken, turkey, lean beef. I do not like any kind of fish. I am trying to keep my calories at 1400 per day. This is going to be a balancing act. I have been to diabetes self management classes and know some things about nutrition. A new type of eating will bring many challenges and also change my insulin requirements and IC ratio. Any suggestions will be appreciated.
