I have also been recently diagnosed with diabetes. The information online is very vague and I found it unhelpful. I have spoken with my BIL who has diabetes 1 for 25 years. He recommended cutting back carbohydrates, which I am doing. I plan on starting the Atkins diet. My BIL eats cookies, bread, pizza, etc. In moderation.

Listen to this youtube lecture by Roy Taylor: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kTCez7FsRn4 and if still interested read the journal history of newcastle910 starting from 9/2011-2012. That is my old account and i was able to successfully reverse my diagnosis of type II for 3 years after. Doing it again right now with a twist and shooting for a longer term reversal this time around by having an exit plan in place this time around. Just not journaling as much like the last time.

The key is moderation and FRESH foods - Try to avoid pre-packaged foods - eat fresh as often as you can.
Anything with a shelf life is bad for your blood pressure as the Sodium is necessary to give it shelf life.
My husband and I have to go to the grocery store more often, of course, but it's soooo much better than feeling horrible because your blood sugar or blood pressure got too high!!

Well, I have been low-carbing, hight protein since Monday. Started at 192 on Monday and weighed yesterday at 194. Really? I have stayed under 25 carbs and have not gotten over my recommended RDI of calories. I am going to stick with it maybe one more week. I report everything I eat.

You can have pretty weird water weight fluctuations so I would not worry about it for now. Your RDI may be actually too high for you. FS numbers are likely too high as reported by many members. Also do not assume that you will automatically start losing weight once you start low carb. A lot of people reported no weight loss until they started reducing calories as well, esp if it is not your first attempt at low carb.
