I was diagnosed diabetic last week. I started a medication, and have started to diet earnestly. I am having trouble trying to figure out what the Carb:FatRazzrotein ratio should be. I need to lose 50 lbs, and have selected 1800 cals, to be my daily max. Does that sound right? Any and all help is very very much appreciated.

newly diagnossed also. according to diabeties for dummies you should strive towards 40% or less carbs in your diet. But since i have been trying i found this very hard. I run bout 55%. but now i am going to throw you a curve. there are supposedly good carbs and bad carbs. Being new also i have not got a handle on this yet.
