I went to my doctor's office this morning to meet with the nutritionist as this was something my doctor wanted me to do now that I'm officially diabetic. As I expected, the meeting was mostly a waste of time. I don't cook (not even to the extent of chopping up fresh vegetables to transform them into snack foods), I won't eat highly processed foods, artificial sweeteners, and with the exception of bananas, grapes, and raisins, I rarely eat fruit. The major thing I came away with was "eat less at all meals." Also I'm supposed to keep my blood sugar within a certain range, however my diabetes is not advanced enough to warrant being prescribed a glucose meter so I can either borrow my husband's meter and test strips to see how I'm doing, or I can guess and rely on quarterly blood draws and the A1C1.
