I make a 7-grain hot cereal and stir almond butter into it for Shrek...he loves it and it keeps his sugars steady. Most important...I like it too.

I usually have a low fat, no added sugar yogurt - like Lite and Fit because it tastes good. I have a problem with my blood pressure and phelalynine (Equal), so for a while I was eating greek yogurt, but found that the sugar was affecting my A1C - so I had to go back to artificially sweetened stuff. Whole grains, a protein source and fiber will help keep your sugars in check. Just watch the carbs, look at the amount of sugars in processed foods not just the carb count. Also, watch the high fructose corn suryp in foods, it may be fine in moderation, but it doesn't like diabetics.

Eggs are good for breakfast, for us Type 2s. I am doing low-carb, not worrying too much about calories right now, and have lost 14 pounds since Dec. 1. I have cut out most grains, potatoes and sugar, I am eating meat, eggs, lots of low carb veggies. Right now, I don't really crave anything.

I have been following Low Carb Friends bulletin board--lots of recipes, lots of ideas. (But, like most internet sites, take what you read with a grain of salt. Some fanatics on there with strange ideas.)

Try this "Deliciously Moist Chocolate Cake". It's name says it all. It is made with Splenda, but my Dad loves it. It is what I make for birthdays, etc.

By the way, I am being testes for diabetes. This isn't the first time, but I am exhibiting many of the symptoms and my doctor seems much more concerned this time. Food-wise I am not too worried because I am already cooking for Dad, and as a Special Diets cook am very familiar with how to adapt meals. I just don't want another "illness" to deal with.

I know that isn't the right attitude, but I am sure I will be able to overcome it better once I know for sure. I know I will be asking you all some coping strategies.

AWWWWWWWWW LP. I know exactly how you feel. Do you remember last year around this time? I stopped posting food pictures? I was so down in the dumps. But I got over it and my numbers were great after 3 months. A1C was 6.0 last month a year ago it was 11.4.

I think it is very important to remember that every diabetic is different. I, for instance, cannot eat fruit with out injecting extra++++ insulin. I know other diabetics that can practically live on fruit. I have a very low carb diet and that keeps me balanced ( at least in the diabetic sense :) ) but I also know diabetics who could win a gold in Olympic carb eating! I think it is a case of trial and error for most diabetics until they find their personal "middle road".
