    Hi

    I take 2 x 850 metformin a day and also have hypoglycemia!

    The nurse at my practise doesn't seem to care what I eat!!

    Does anyone have any suggestions, I really need to loose a stone and it just wont come off I am getting desperate.

    I have no idea what I should/shouldn't be eating.

    Desperate from York

    Good luck Fliss, I can tell you that the advice given here certainly worked for me and I'm still losing weight ( although at a slightly slower rate ). The nice thing about watching your carbs is that you don't get so hungry and as long as you plan ahead there is a load of things you can eat. Lunchtimes out on the run are the worst for me as everyone else can grab a sandwich or jacket potato but I have to find somewhere that does great salads or a more'formal' kind of lunch. Never mind, it's not much of a cross to bear :D
