I have been trying to cut down on my carbs, but it seems like the more I try, the more I want them. It has been leading to carb binges and I’m not sure what to do.
I think one thing that is good, is that I have an appointment with a dietitian, at the request of my doctor. I initially avoided it because they might just give me the Exchanges diet, which nobody seems to like anymore. But I need much more structure than I have right now.
For years and years I did Weight Watchers. That gave me a structure to work within. I’m not planning to do WW anymore, because it won’t give me enough feedback about carbs. Even the Core plan is high-carb (even though it’s low-refined-carb). I think that whatever the dietitian tells me to do, I will try to do it for at least a couple weeks and see how it goes.
I’ve been looking for a website that will let me EASILY log both my BG readings and my food. I am a little interested in more than just carbs (I think I’d like to see calories and fat too). I am seriously considering ordering the OneTouch cable and software, because I think it lets you manage your food too (at least to a point). But I want something where I can look up the food in the interface instead of having to memorize carb values. I looked at SugarStats and I really wanted to like it, but its current interface for logging food is terrible. I paid the monthly subscription so I Feel like I’m entitled to say that. I appreciate what they are trying to do, I just hope they are able to bring the project further along soon. Online interfaces are ideal for me, because I’m on the computer almost constantly for my job. I’m also typically on the computer a lot at home (even though my hard drive in my laptop died and I am waiting on the replacement right now).
