I'm pre diabetic. What is best way to lower my carb intake. I'm used to eating as many carbs as I want and now I feel addicted to them. What is a good plan to start with?

When I want to cut carbs I stay away from bread, rice, pasta, potatoes, sugar and most fruits. I eat protein like beef, fish, pork, seafood, eggs, and cheese. The veggies I eat are all very low carb like cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, cucumbers, yellow squash, sweet peppers, mushrooms, olives, green beans and you need good fat too. I like butter, olive oil, coconut oil, and heavy cream. But you will have to see what works best for your body.

Thank you, that helps. I just got started this week. I haven't eaten out yet. I know that will be a challenge.

hi and welcome to DC… As James said, the best way is getting rid of the simple carbs. The breads and "junk" foods. Eat lots of proteins and lots of healthy green veggies. The first 2 or 3 weeks it will feel a bit difficult and you might feel hungry, drink lots of water. Soon you will stop craving those foods and enjoy the healthy foods. Best of health to you. Heidi

Thank you. I'm changing to more protein in my breakfast. I've always eaten a large bowl of cereal every day. I love cereal. Do you know of a lower carb, high protein cereal I could use sometimes?

WELCOME to DC!

In my opinion, the best way to lower one's carb intake is to fill up on protein. Then avoid the breads and products made with grain and other "simple" carbs. (see ~ http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/artic...) and eat "complex" carbs instead.

Usually quite soon you will become habituated to this way of eating and you will wonder how you ate all that garbage before.

God's best to you
James
