IF anyone can help me, I'd appreciate it. I need a healthier menu plan part of it is for going to work. The other is to help lose weight and control my diabetes better. With the recent problems, I am trying to refocus on my intake of food to become better. So if any of you can make a list in the reply, aka like this:
Breakfast
Snack
Lunch
Snack
Dinner
Then put down what you do. Mind you from breakfast I am working. I just thought if we have a visual like this and what we can change or mix up things I believe it will help all of us.
Thank you
Hugs

I had lost About 65 lbs and achieved a 5.5 A1c by following my eating plan.

It is set up around the 3 meals per day but I would suspect that you could adjust it to suit your needs and tastes. Read about it here ~ http://www.diabeticconnect.com/discussions/14...
