Getting this Diabetic Healthier

I have Type 2 Diabetes and saw my nutritionist today, its the first visit in a long time. It was a re-education visit for me, and I will be going roughly monthly.

Here’s what I learned, and this applies to me (disclaimer) and is tailored to my needs:

  • start watching carbs with an eye toward weight loss in order to bring my type 2 diabetes under better control
  • stop my current meal replacement shakes and switch to EAS AdvantEDGE Carb Control (ready-to-drink)
  • aim for 45-60 grams of Carbohydrates per meal
  • look at Stevia, which is supposed to be a good replacement for sugar and is natural
  • record what I eat
  • look up fast food I eat online
