I'm with you, G'ma Cookie! I can't stomach the idea of eating cottage cheese. I wonder if we can replace it with a low or non-fat yogurt instead? I can handle that…

G'ma Cookie, I don't like Diabetes either, but I have to eat a "different" diet to continue to live with diabetes as there is no cure available. There are several foods that have never been my favorite foods that I now have to eat regularly and there are also foods that I used to eat regularly that I now have to eat very sparingly. This is just a fact of life. You show very little self control by dissing a very smalll quantity of a food that you "don't like". You learn to like foods that you are accustomed to eating. Just swallow your pride and get used to a slight modification to your diet to cope with your disease.

This is great to have something to follow, but how do you adjust your insulin intake now?
