    I don't actually count, just avoid the usual suspects, grains, spuds, pasta, rice, bread. Still have a splash ofmilk in my tea & sometimes coffee, If I'm at my parents for Sunday dinner I won't have any root veg, but will have 1 small yorkshire pud

    Try low fat cheese and low fat protein like the less oily fish. Can you eat low fat yogarts?
    Concentrate on protein heavily.
    Have you tried low fat milk shakes for the 600cal diet?
    I'd definitely use protein as your key to a better hba1c. I wish dns would take on board the hba1c is just one piece of the jigsaw!!!
