In trying Dr. Richard Bernstein's diabetic diet I have come across a new quandry. Since he advocates eating only vegetable, protein and fat I'm left guesing at to whether or not to count the fiber in veggies. If we are only allowed 6 grams carbohydrate at breakfast, 12 at lunch and 12 at dinner, If one subtracts out the carbs when counting for boulings it means potentially eating twice as many vegetables. i.e. broccoli raab has a ton of fiber so if one subtracts one gets a whole lot more.
I'm testing my blood sugar 8-12 times a day in an effort to figure out if his diet really does help eliminate blood sugar spikes.
