I would also suggest seeing a dietician about the best diet for you. There is an abundance of good and bad advice and the advice will differ from person to person. How you manage your diet may also depend on if you have Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes and what you want your lifestyle to be like. Carbs are the only thing you count when you are trying to figure out the insulin your body needs, so a low carb diet means your body needs less insulin. That being said, you need carbs for energy, so if you are diabetic, it is VERY important you understand the relationship between carbs and insulin (it could mean the difference between life and death).
