Like "You eat regular food coolgirl! The thing that is makes a person with diabetes' (PWD) eating plan different is that you must control your serving sizes and count your carbohydrates ("carbs"). You use your glucometer to tell you what works for you and what doesn't in terms of intake of food and drink. Diabetes is not a one-size-fits-all condition. What will send my Blood Glucose (BG) sky high may not budge your BG at all. If you don't have a glucometer, get one at a pharmacy like Walmart or Walgreens. An inexpensive one will do, but make sure the test strips are inexpensive too, as that can be a big cost over time. Once you have your meter and you want to test how a particular food or drink affects you, Take a BG reading (called your "baseline") Consume a suggested serving of what you want to test. Then 2 hrs after consuming it you take another BG reading (called your "postprandial" reading). If your BG number is 50 points or more above your baseline, then you can choose whether or not you want to try again later with a smaller serving size. If it's a lot more higher than 50, you probably want to add it to your list of no-nos for you. It might be helpful to you to get a 3 ring binder and paper and write down your test results for later reference. To find suggested serving sizes look in the nutritional information boxes on the packaging, or if it doesn't come in a package Google "nutrition information" and find a site which gives that kind of information. I've found http://nutritiondata.self.com/ useful. You can also buy a book called "Calorie King" to do much the same. Praying you get all the information you need soon so you can get better control of your diabetes. James "
