My husband is currently at serious risk for getting diabetes. We, of course, want to prevent this. The doctor is recommending a low carb diet, until his sugar/insulin is under control, then a regular low-cal/fat diet, plus regular exercise. Since I need to lose weight as well, I'm joining him on his diet. Can't hurt, right?
He isn't supposed to have more than 30 carbs of any kind a day, probably for the next two months. He's scheduled to see a nutritionist soon. The problem we're having right now is, until we see the nutritionist, we're unsure of what to eat! Almost everything has carbs in it. Has anyone been on a low-carb diet, and have any recommendations/recipes?
I have an incredible sweet-tooth, and I thoroughly enjoy baking, so any low carb baking recipes would be appreciated. Do these even exist = ( ?
