Low carb does not mean "no carb." I am type 2 diabetic and have to keep my carbs under control if I want my blood sugar under control. It's as simple as that. I could increase my meds, but why? So I can eat bread? I have known a few people who have cut back on carbs, exercised, lost weight and no longer have to take their meds. I want to be one of those people. Eating starchy carbs makes me feel bloated, tired, sleepy and all around miserable. Each person has to test their blood sugar regularly to know what foods spike their blood sugar and which ones they can eat in moderation. There is no hard and fast rules, as we are all different and our bodies handle food differently.
