Smile type I diabetic here. for over 21 years now, I'm 28

for me, a lot of these "fad" diets cause my blood sugars to be crazy even if i'm counting carbs. For the most part I try to eat clean, organic vegetables, organic raw nuts and seeds, organic quinoa for grain, I do eat organic eggs, and organic lactose free milk, or organic coconut milk with my coffee, I eat organic turkey burgers, or organic gluten free quinoa burgers. For the bread part of the sandwich, I do use the Julian Bakery Paleo bread, because it is such high fiber, and gluten free. ALso each slice is only 40 calories. Its not cheap, but it is worth it. I usually buy it at local Hy-Vee grocery stores.
I noticed if I don't eat white sugar and white flours, I'm good and my blood sugars are very stable. I do absolutely love to bake, so I use low glycemic organic sweetners like agave nectar, coconut nectar sugar, or honey.

Hope this helps, but don't hesitate if you have any more questions, i'm always willing to help if I can.
