Following a diabetic/thrush diet. Basically no sugar, low low carbs, low fat.
Still learning what and when to eat.

This is an awesome site, they should teach this in school.
Found store bought rotisserie chicken is very bad, so I ordered a Ronco EZ-Store Rotisserie Oven 5250 Series.

Continually adjusting my food intake.

No excuses, like holdays birthdays anniversaries if I want to live to see more.
Remind myself dailey to stay on track!
Get on board or get out of my way!
This is Serious!

As 2017 comes to an end so does my life as a diabetic!
I began 2017 @260 pounds
I dieted off and on but was always aware of fat content and tried to keep
it low.
Then September 14, 2017 I found FatSecret, and many supportive people,I weighed 237.
I was hellbent on ending diabetes.
Ironically I learned more on FS than in any doctors office.
Cut my carbs, drank 8-10 glasses of water, ate chicken, fish, shrimp and more chicken!
Am I sick of water, you betcha, do I still drink it yup!
My determination proved successful, I am NO longer a diabetic!
Did I ever waiver, cheat or go off plan, NO!
The way I looked at it dieting is a mindset and theres something to be said about being a Taurus
that stubborness paid off!
I will be lowering my goal weight as I get closer to my present goal.

Zero Carb Pasta Recommendations
Have you tried to rinse it throughly, boil it, then cook in without any liquids dry pan to dry it out!
Then when you put it with a sauce it will hold the flavor of the sauce good luck!

If your ready, let's do this!
Diabetes loves carbs, the more you eat the worse it gets.
By cutting your carbs your body uses your own stored fat for
energy, thus you lose weight. Hope this helped you in understanding
How the body works and how to put diabetes in it's place!
