Beverly *Admin of Facebook THM-Diabeticgroup I would recommend solid S meals right now. A bullet proof coffee is very calorie dense. I would limit it to 1 of those and add something to chew for breakfast instead. Try a pulled back E snack to give yourself some healthy carbs without overloading your system. I know it's a pain (literally) but I encourage you to keep checking pre meal and at 2 hours and tracking those results. The information can really help you find what carbs work best for you and at what time of day you tolerate them the best.

Eating to your meter - test before eating ant at 2 hours afterward - record it ,journal foods ,study yourself until you know YOU!!!

KT Tevlin Admin. fromFacebook THM-Diabetic group: Be sure to read page 88-89 in the "Trim Healthy Mama Plan" book regarding protein. The amount of protein in our meals will vary but "If you really want a protein number to shoot for at every meal, twenty to twenty-five grams should do it. We don’t want people using that as a hard- and- fast rule, though."

One cup of cottage cheese would have approximately 25g of protein. If you have a smaller serving of cottage cheese, consider adding collagen or whey protein powder.

I find better blood sugars with the E cookbook recipes than building my own because they have the right balance of carbs and protein. The Waldorf Cottage Salad recipe on page 190 in the "Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook" is a similar yummy E meal.

Started making notes on the new book Trim Healthy Table but today's notes go back to the earlier plan book - studying comments about Cholesterol and triglycerides --- pg 91 refers to eating more DEEP S meals and including the superfoods of eggs pg130, okra pg 134, flax pg137, apple cider vinegar pg139, Glucomannan pg147, cinnamon pg154, and high mineral salt pg158. Thought this might encourage someone.

Also two newer items from THM are baobob for added energy and CBD Oil improving sleep.

FLOUR and Breads Pg 45 - gleaned from a facebook group THM-Diabetic
"""We simply make sure that grain-based bread flours are sprouted or a sourdough variety. The reason for this is that any grain in flour form causes a more speedy rise in blood sugar. Sprouting or souring bread flours slows this down and helps create a more balanced blood-sugar level, which is always our goal." - From page 45 in the "Trim Healthy Mama Plan" book.

In general sprouted flours are more gentle on your blood sugars, so like with most foods in THM, it's not just about the amount of carbs that matters but the quality (lower glycemic index and glycemic load) of them. You see ladies say "Ingredients trump numbers", and it's true. I could have 20 carbs worth of a Snickers bar or 20 carbs worth of quinoa, which do you think my body would handle better?

The guidelines state, we can have up to 6 carbs worth of "low carb" type foods occasionally, like low carb tortillas which include un-sprouted flours, so it's always up to the individual what products they choose to use on THM. ""
