Like "Hello Sue Ya its a lot to know It gose like this the biggest thing carbs keep them to as low as you can . That meaqns keep rice, spuds,bread and pasta as low as you can not having any is best but I cant do that I got to have a little . One other thing that helps a lot is the book The Caalorie King it has all the carbs in all the foods you eat . I rite it all down what I eat what my BS is before I eat and 2 hr after I eat I would sey the two work very well together best wishes Harlen"
