I am on a low protein diet per my doctors and I was shocked at how much protein is in carbs too. Not sure if diabetic diets are low in proteins also? I have however lost 29 lbs in 6 weeks so not shooting it down. I can eat all the fruit and a lot of the veggies I like (minus tons of spinach as its loaded with protein sigh and I love spinach). Its the carbs such as one slice of bread 4-6 protein grams per slice(nix bread thanks) 1/4 cup rice or pasta 4-5 proteins that get me. I can only have 30 a day so I pick and chose carefully. Love to chat with anyone else who is on this same health plan. Its a life plan for me (yippee) now. I sure love my oranges and bananas now :) and cabbage salad too..
