Kathi… first of all welcome to our community! I have cruised around the web enough to honestly tell you that you've entered the kitchen table of a rather happy family. Sure there are ups and downs in our communication but for the most part we get along really well, are supportive, are honest with each other, and everything that a family and friend should be.

Your question has been asked and answered so many times that I would point you to the discussions page and the search feature for keywords. I think the keyword "diet" or "diabetic diet" is going to keep you busy. You'll find out what other members have found and are seeking. You'll also find the words "eating plan" or "menu" used more often than "diet."

What works for me may not work for you and the other way around. It's your tastebuds and meter readings that are going to make more sense for you than reading what others like or dislike. I found that out early in my search for the ideal cookbook and/or menu plan. Every one told me to eat this or that and they were foods that I just didn't like. That blows the whole concept. People won't stay focused on any diet of foods they don't like. That's reality.

I do encourage baby steps when it comes to finding the right plans for your meals. If you are looking to lose all kinds of weight overnight and have this insanely healthy refrigerator full of organic products, you are going to lose your mind and your motivation sooner. It will all come in time much like your control of your diabetes and your life.

Please feel free to invite me as a friend but be warned that my world is a crazy, crazy place. :)

Take your shoes off and enjoy the company of this board. You'll find education, inspiration and motivation from many of us who have, are or will be going through the same things as you.

Welcome to our world!!!
