There are good reasons to low carb. Low carb is a relative term:) Even young children can safely eat low carb meals & this is how our ancestors ate for thousands of years. Growing bodies need protein & sufficient fat, not lots of carbs.
Unless you’re very active, strenuously exercising a lot, 75 carbs per meal is quite high.
You need more insulin to cover high carb meals. Large doses of insulin act unpredictably. Small doses of insulin are more predictable & easier to control. Swings from high to low are damaging & exhausting. Larger doses of insulin are pretty much a prescription for weight gain because insulin is a fat storing hormone. Gaining weight requires higher doses of insulin, so it can become a vicious cycle.
Eating whatever you want & attempting to cover it with insulin doesn’t work. There are too many variables & insulin dosing is far from an exact science.
My experience has been that low carb controls BG & is a healthy way to eat. If you do it correctly, you won’t be hungry or feel deprived. The more carbs we eat, the hungrier we are & the more carbs we crave. Another vicious cycle that’s risky for people with diabetes.

I eat 30-35 carbs a day. I don’t feel starved & feel far better than when I followed dietician ADA advice of high carb meals & constant snacking. When I ate the way the dietician recommended, all day long I was high & low & had no energy.
There are lots of low carb recipe sites to help you.
