Hello Everyone, I hope you are all having a lovely weekend and hope you are all doing well.. For those that are having a hard time I am sending lot's of Aussie hugs and for those that are doing well a high 5 to you and great news!
As my subject says I am wondering about Carb's. Since I found out that I have Type 2 in July and have done so much reading it's a wonder my eye's have not gone square..LOL. I have from the week I found out I have been doing low carb and have lost over 32 KG'S (I only have 5kg's to get to my own goal weight and hope to get to this weight by christmas, new year) and it's working extremely well for me not only for my weight but for my diabetes my numbers are coming down and my 14 day average have been in the mid 5's to 6's (in the USA I think that's around 90 to 100). I allow myself around 50-60 grams of carbs a day give or take depends on the day. I have heard so many educators be it dietitians or educators (even my own) say you must at least have 130 grames a day.
My question is how many carbs a day should we really have? I suppose I have answered my own question when I think about it but would really love your feed back.
Take Care everyone..
