Hello from Montana!

Just stumbled on this forum and am very pleased to find fellow foodies. I love to cook and love to eat. My main interests are in eating as natural a diet as possible and expanding my recipe collection with "good for you" foods.

Since starting my all natural kick and watching portion sizes, I've managed to lose 30 pounds since Januray of this year. I have 25 pounds to go.

I am also skilled in Diabetic cooking and menus. I am a Registered Nurse with patients and family who are diabetics and I welcome questions if there is any way I can be of help.

Welcome on board, Montana. Just amazing to know you have lost so much weight. I have a friend who sufferes from Diabetes Type 1. Is there a special diet he has to adhere to? It's so severe that he has to run for coke very often which is a quick fix for his sugar level. Occasionally he gets hospitalised. Really hope I can help.

Hey Montana, Welcome to DC. I started eating healthier and watching my portions on March 4th. 2009 and have dropped 28 lbs. so far. I want to lose 137 total, and am in it for the long haul. This was a life changing decision I chose to make and I'm feeling so much better already.

Shalinee...your friend is treating his diabetes wrong if he is going for a coke for a quick fix. He needs something that will last him longer, like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. The protein and complex carbs in whole grain bread will level his blood sugars out rather than just spiking them up like the coke does. It's fine to get your blood sugar up quickly, but once that is done a diabetic needs to eat a solid snack or their blood sugar will crash again. Most likely he needs to consult a dietitian to establish better eating patterns.

Weight loss

Congratulations on your weight loss. It's such a pleasure to find the changes. Unfortunately, I'm at that point where I have to buy new clothes...or maybe not so unfortunate

Good for you Recipes

Thanks for the welcome. Now all recipes are good for you, if you use the right ingredients and proper portion sizes. Heck, I just finished making a chili cheesecake using all fresh and organic ingredients and it's fantastic. Of course with the proper portion sizes it'll take me two weeks to eat all of it...thank goodness and Frigidaire I have the freezer space.
