Hey to everyone, I'm 18 I got diagnosed as type 1 on thursday, and (I guess like with everyone) they gave me all these leaflets about how and what to eat. I have a question.. A lot of the advice seemed to revolve around your typical "eat healthily" advice that non-diabetic people are supposed to do, which is great because I did all that anyway. But are there specificthings i should avoid? I'm good with knowing what to eat, but a little list of definite "never eat this" foods would be good, maybe things I wouldn't have thought of? Like I understand icecream, chocolate and so forth aren't the best of ideas but how about say, pineapple? Also, a lot of the emphasis appeared to be on losing weight. Course, as a type 1 I've (scarily) losttwo and a bit stone over the past month or so. Since it was mostly muscle, and I'd like to put it back on that way, I'd like to know if it's as easy as "eat more protein, do more excercise" like before, or are there other considerations now I'm a lifelong gold member of the blood-sugar club? (It just helps if you think of it like that ) Apologies for the ridiculously long first post. I'd greatly appreciate all your help, thankyou!
