| Honestly, I find eating a diabetic- oriented diet to be balanced with good carbs and protein and very healthful. I recommend these two cookbooks by Robyn Webb, a registered dietician: Diabetic Meals in 30 Minutes - or Less! and Eat to Beat Diabetes. She also has 200 healthy Recipes in 30 Minutes - or Less! Mine were gifts,|
Hope this helps, and good luck!

| Thanks 8 pack!|
I see that refined sugars and flours (even the "healthy breads" out there) bloat me up and send me into craving more refined carbs.
I have been enjoying pumpkin seeds lately as a quick snack.
Also, the protein powder saves me!

| I'm a low carber. Eat nuts for snacks. Almonds, wallnuts, pecans etc. They're full of protein and fat and are very satisfying as a snack. I usually snack on nuts and veggies like carrots, cucumbers and tomatoes. I specifically follow the paleolithic nutritional regimen. You can read up on paleolithic diet anywhere online. The only mod I made was to eat way more veggies than fruit. Fruit as it is sold in most stores is bred for size, colour and high sugar content. Natural organic fruits are much smaller and more tart, but expensive.|
Consistency with exercise will come when you find a type of exercise you enjoy. Go outside the box, play a sport, join a league, start dance classes, whatever keeps you moving and enjoying it.
I hope you find your balance.
