    Hello again,
    MG have I been busy...Canadian relatives really kept me moving! BUT I have a question of someone can help me with: I assume butter beans are on the starchy veg list? Am I right?

    I'm stuck at 176 lbs & hope to have a blood test, etc later this month. The Accu-chek monitor tell me my fasting gb is around 4.5 - 5.5............. I must get my visceral fat level checked soon.....fingers crossed!

    @TerryinDorset - a 4.5-5.5 FBG is wonderful! The BSD is really working for you!

    If, after 8 weeks, you can return to eating 250 gms of carbohydrate every day (average for us humans), then he'd be right.

    I think well controlled is a better word to use but 'reverse' will sell more but at the end of the day if it is helping some to achieve lower BS thats not too bad a trade off.

    Butter beans are fine for me, but your meter will inform you of your results with them.
