So far, so good on the low carb diet. Lost nearly a stone since diagnosis - about 3 weeks ago. Meter reading yesterday 5.4% (7.2% at diagnosis). However, am still getting to grips with supermarkets labels! My problem is my diet is boring but I've seen foods which I'd like but they have a high carb count. But then its broken down into two parts; Dietary carbs and Carbs that sugars. So my question is if its 50g carb but 45g is dietary carbs is that ok for a low carb diet?
