This made me sade.
Sorry, I didn't mean to bring anyone down, or sound like I was
I do miss certain foods, but I am learning to eat better. I'm
love salads, and I even like cucumbers now, never have before. What
incredibly frustrating, however, is that I lost a lot of weight
but I've hit a wall now for the last couple of months. I can't drop
ounce, even though I'm literally eating like a bird compared to what
to eat, at least half maybe less. I'm sure it's because I don't
but it's just annoying to think of all the yummy stuff I had to give
to be 14 pounds lighter.
It's not that I'm hungry, the medications I'm taking seems to help
that. Every now and then I'm hungry but for the most part, I'm fine.
just miss the sensory enjoyment of high-carb stuff that I used to

No need to apologize or explain....I didn't think you were complaining
at all. I was just sad, thinking of never being able enjoy certain
foods. That really sucks. (Although if I had to change my diet to
have a longer life, I'd do it if I knew I had to. It's all about the
children--I think you know what I mean.)
That's a common mis-conception with diabetes, actually. There are no
specific foods that a diabetic cannot have, it's just that we can't
have as much of it as we'd like, or as much as a non-diabetic could
have. It's not all bad. For example, I discovered that I can have as
much meat and eggs as I want, but that's partially because I naturally
have low cholesterol numbers. I don't really have to worry (too much)
about fat, and ironically, it's the high-fat salad dressings that have
the lowest carbs. I also discovered that a Hershey bar has 22 carbs,
which means that I can have one for an afternoon snack, and not feel
guilty. At least I get to eat a WHOLE bar and not have to limit
myself to a few squares, heh. I also discovered that the darker the
chocolate (and I LOVE dark chocolate) the lower the carbs. Many
chocolate bar makers are showing the percentage of cocoa in their
bars, and I've found one that goes as high as 85% cocoa, Lindt, I
think is the brand. Funny thing is my first bite, I didn't like it at
all, and was not going to eat any more. Then the chocolate taste buds
re-woke and beckoned me to eat more. Soon I was craving it like mad.
Good thing I only had one of them, heh.
Sounds like my experience. Type II here also. Have you tried Byetta?
It really made a big difference in my blood sugar levels.
