After being newly diagnosed recently, I found I was getting overwhelmed by new information about diets, medication, etc. Even reading labels in the grocery stores got to be too much for me.
Then I discovered that I could take it more slowly than a total overhaul. This week I tried roasted red pepper flavored hummus. Never wanted to even look at hummus before. But two tablespoons is 5g carbs, 50 calories with 1/2 of that fat. I use it to dip carrot sticks in for a snack. I've lost 2 pounds this past week from increasing my walking and changing some of what I eat.
Anyone one else have one food or one thing they've changed lately that helped?
