Controlling Carb Intake?

An_255009 posted:
I've been using WebMd to manage my weight and type 2 diabetes. But I have been having a time at not going over the daily allowance of carbohydrate intake of 137. I'm looking for information or suggestions on how to better control it. The same is true for my sodium intake even though I do not add salt to my meals.

What are you eating? Many sources encourage people to eat plenty of whole grains, but if you're looking to get your carbs under control I would cut out wheat altogether. That should make eat easy to stay under 137.

The low carb, real food based diet involves eating natural, unprocessed foods with a low carbohydrate content. To control carbs intake go for low carbs food like vegetables, fruit, nuts, seeds.

I think balanced and healthy diet plan can make all the difference to a person is sufficient type 2 diabetes. There nothing as to completely cut the carb intake as they are real source of energy. Complex carbohydrates are considered healthier as they are easily digested and provide steady source of energy. As far Carbohydrate counting is considered you need to contact registered dietitian as they will figure out a carbohydrate counting plan that meets your specific needs.
