    It will need some juggling and experimenting. My advice, for what it's worth, is to plan well ahead and start a maintenance diet before you need to because it does take time to get it right. I am still struggling a bit and still losing the odd pound every now and again, so am glad I have a bit of leaway.

    I try and stick to low fat diet foods, as not only being type 2 diabetic my blood pressure is sky high as well and on meds to control that as well and if I have the full fat versions it increases my blood pressure, cheese seems to have a big affect not too sure why it spikes so much. Think you have to try and find what works for you.

    My nurse told me to go for full fat plain yoghurt then add fruit yourself so you know how much fruit is in it (or eat it plain). Tastes good with cinnamon in.

    I prefer full fat everything, but low carbs.

    Isn't it the case that when you eat foods with a higher fat content any carbs are released much more slowly. I've lower GI ?
