I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes 9yrs ago. Thru the years I've been both strict and lax with my diet. 3yrs ago, I got tired of having to give myself insulin shots and lost 50 pounds. I didn't need insulin anymore, so that was a big plus in my life. Since then, I've, lost a total of 145 pounds. My boyfriend just recently found out he has type 2 and I've been discussing diet and things he needs to know with him. His nutritionist saw him yesterday and I found out something that kind of disturb me a bit. I've always been told to limit my meals to 40 carbs and snacks to 15 carbs. I've very strict with this and ,most of the time, eat less carbs then I've been told I can have. I don't eat any carbs unless the food has lots of fiber. My last A1C was 6.5 but has been as low as 5.7. My glucose goal after meals is no more than 130. The nutritionist told him he could have up to 60 carbs in a meal. It seems like a LOT of carbs in a day. Is this a normal thing? My boyfriend thinks I'm being too hard on myself and denying myself things I can actually eat. I'm kinda confused right now and need some clarification. Any help would be appreciated.
