    Hi jeanette and welcome to the forum.
    Have a look on the Greetings and Introductions board at the topic, "Basic Information for Newly Diagnosed Diabetics" and see if the eating advice there is the same as your healthy eating plan. It might be that you need to tweak some of the portion sizes of the foods that you are eating.

    Hope this helps,

    Catherine.
