Mediterranean Diet

I am a Mediterranean dieter

Pros: The Mediterranean diet is for me the best choice for a person like me that like variety in the food. I found countless choices of food combination that help me to manage my type 1 diabetes and at same time never became boring of the food.

Cons: Maybe I am wrong but I never found anything wrong with this diet.

Overall: I am following the Mediterranean diet since the last 11 years. I have no prob with the combination of the veg, legums, beans, nuts etc. It help me a lot to control my numbers. And it help me to loose weight. In my case was really helpful and cause I love to cook, I start learning different recipes from the south of Italy, from Egypt, Morocco, Greece that are some of the countries that use this way of eating. This way I made my diet with more variety and I enjoy it a lot.

ReliOn Confirm Meter


Pros: Easy to use and can get strips off the shelf at 3 in the morning at most Wal*Marts. I guess blue ones are for boys and the pink ones are for girls.;-)

Cons: The meter reads 30mg/dl higher than my old Prestige meter. But evey "no code" meter I've tried reads higher than the Prestige. Some as high as 56mg/dl. I had one doctor tell me to keep using it and leave the new ones alone. But the problem is I can't find test strips for the Prestige any more...
