I used to go into the grocery store and simply pick out what I liked to eat and which was cheapest. No more-now I spend hours reading the labels making absolutely sure that the carbohydrate count is within reasonable limits, the sugar count is low and mentally subtracting the fiber count from the total carbohydrate count. Then there is the serving size—what serving size makes up this carbohydrate count. I am getting much better then I was at this. I have also learned that low calorie does not necessarily equate with low carb!!
I thought about trying one of the low carbohydrate diets like Atkins. I am, however, a very picky eater. I am also not all that good at following a totally regimented routine-be it food or anything else. Health food stores do not help in the least. Everytime I pick something up it is high in carbohydrates. I have found substitutes for some items. I now use Almond Milk instead of whole or skim milk. I am also eating more vegetables. I am hoping to find more very soon.
