Louise_WebMD_Staff replied to priceless_57's response:
What are you trying to sort out as far as carbs and calories? Do you need to lose weight and keep your carbs at a certain level?
priceless_57 replied to Louise_WebMD_Staff's response:
I am trying to lose some 5-10 lbs and get off meds for type 2 diabetes, also bring my high cholestrol down without meds.
