I don't particularly like it, myself. You can pretty much eat anything you want with type 1. Within reason of course given your weight and activity level. Simply count the carbs, and take the required amount of insulin based on what you eat.

If you are looking for info about handling things, I would recommend the 2 books "Think Like a Pancreas" and "Using Insulin". They are "bibles" to insulin users.
