At one of my classes, they told us that the Deerfield Pasta was a low glycemic product that had been made for us that need to watch our BG. I decided to try it since they said it was supposed to keep the Bg from spiking. Thought I would let you all know that may not work for everyone. I found that I spike alot more with it than with a whole grain pasta. Trial and error. I found something else to stay away from. Not sure if my Dr wanted me to lose any weight since I wasn't really overweight to begin with but have lost almost 6 lbs in the last 2 1/2 months with my new "diet". Have found a great pancake mix that works great for me, that made me really happy. Now just need a waffle iron, so I can try it that way too. Also, have found that I don't have to take processed sugar completely put either. As long as I keep it counted in my daily carb count, for the most part I do good. Have found a couple of sugar free syrups and fruit spreads too. I think it is finally coming together slowly for me, so don't feel so lost or frustrated. Hope everyone has been doing well. Have been dealing with other life issues so I have been away for awhile. Will try to come back more often now.
