Browse around the forum a bit. Someone who knows how will post links to Blood Sugar 101. However, be aware that most diabetes educators recommend higher amounts of carbohydrates per day that most of us eat. You don't mention what your usual diet is, but if you are a heavy soda drinker, drop all sodas and drink healthier (try water). Right away you have lowered the "junk" carbohydrates in so many people's diets. Then cut way back on all added sugar foods. Actually, the simpler the recipe, the better. Finally, lowering the amount of foods with processed flour in your diet will help also. Above the ground vegs have lower carbohydrate counts than root vegs. Do you have a meter?
