Since I've been off of pill and solely diet and exercise control for a year now, I've got to watch it...which is difficult.

I also tend to buy either wheat or multigrain that is half; i.e, 7 g carb per slice; and try to have only one slice at a time (else, hard to have any other carb). Like everything else, though; depends on what you're taking...when you eat it...what else you are eating, just ate, or intend to eat....etc. etc. and so on.

I've had industrial-strength bread twice in the last year, I think. Because it wasn't the 7-g only kind, I made sure I had it sitting down; slowly ate it and savored it; and didn't have any other carb at that 'meal'. (Had some fish, I think). But you get the picture. Control is my main issue; i.e., when I CAN have long as it's only one....... making it just one is the whole focus. As long as I was on the oral med, I never really made it all the way to controlling things like that. Not that I'm there yet; but, my hemoglobins have been ok the past year, mainly because being off my 'safety net' has kept me just a tad paranoid. As a result, comparatively speaking, I'm 'healthier' than I have been in almost 15 years.

So far, anyway.
