OK People!! I need help here!! I am looking for a good site that will give a 15-1800 Cal/day and up to 200 Carb/day.

I am a Type II insulin dependent Diabetic and have issues with the wife concerning our MEALS. I have found two sites but can not get them to answer regarding my Allergy to CHOCOLATE. Once again, No One Wants to listen to us!

What is that one NutriSystem-D Those bastards won't even entertain your voice when you call.

I need help. 90 units (twice a day) of Novolog 70/30 and BG's of 290 or better is not right!!!

Has anyone else

I am not trying to lose weight. I am trying to get a formulated diet for my Cal/Carb allowance. I have a family that still wants to eat any way they chose. I have to eat what they do. we are on a low fixed income. I just want my BGs down so I can lower my Insulin dosage!!

I really like this website. Food is very tasty and balanced. I have lost 40 pounds since being on it for the last 6 months. I am still overweight but working on getting it off. I ate my way to TypeII diabetes. My daughter walks down the aisle in 6 months and I plan on being thinner than I am now.

What's up Doc? (sorry, couldn't resist)

There are a number of online and offline menu and diet plans out there but my experience is that people burn out on them and end up gaining the weight back and then some. It sounds like your 15-1800 calories (that's a generous target of 200 carbs daily) is safe and sane and should be easily planned out with things that you love and that are good for you. Planning your menus is as wise as planning your finances with a budget.

There is nothing wrong with mix and match when it comes to the recipes from various existing diet plans so long as you get a reasonable amount of calories, carbs, fat, protein, sodium, cholesterol, etc from the favorite foods that you plan out. I would think if there were an "ideal" plan out there everyone would be on it. What works for one person may not work for another … but the most important plan for success has to do with YOU.

Grab some Atkins recipes and some from Weight Watchers and some from Nutrisystems and come up with a plan that fits into your needs (and tastes). I get a lot of new recipes from library cookbooks and from web surfing. I have built my own tried and true library of recipes that fit my plan. Variety is the key for my lifestyle when it comes to food. I've adjusted my thinking from going from living to eat to eating to live.

The diet plan that works best for me is Ray's Diet. I have lost 30 pounds (kept it off) and can't say that I am stuck eating salads every day of my life. I don't obsess over counting carbs or calories or any of that. I plan ahead and stick to the plan … and it works!
