Smile sugar

I have been on a diet and I eat buckwheat it is a herb not a crereal. You can get it a health food store. I order a case 12 boxes from amazon.

Try this link: http://www.glycemicindex.com/
for low glycemic foods.

For pasta there is a brand called Dreamfields which has a special coating on the pasta that brings the digested carb level down below 10 compared to 'normal' pasta around 40+. But don't overcook it or you lose the protection. Tastes like normal pasta to me.

Fiber-one bran is to best choice with fat free milk. It will taste like cardboard but you will get use to it just like sugar-free jelly and sugar free syrup.

I nibble on almonds. A handful or so. I also eat Yoplait light yogurt that is fat free.

The sugar content in yogurt is not processed the same as regular sugar as it is a milk type product or so a doctor who was diabetic himself told me at one time.

Toast using Muli-grain bread with sugar-free jelly and a cup of tea with Splenda. Use fat-free milk.

A apple is a good snack. I also eat a small bowl of oatmeal on occasion with a packet of Splenda. Original Quaker Oats and not the package type oatmeal that contains too much sugar.

I look at all labels for less than 10 grams of sugar per serving and less than 3% of fat per 100 calories, (3 grams of fat per 100 calories).

IMHO - I found that when I cut down on my sugar intake, the taste of high sugar products was somewhat yucky.

Hope this helps you!!!!
