  1. In the last post to us about how to control what and how munch you should eat for Thanksgiving day dinner I would suggest that you start out with a 9 inch plate that will cut down on the amount you eat with one serving. I have been a Diabetic for 11 years and I learned that moderation is one of the best solutions for controlling Carbs.

  2. I seem to be able to maintain diabetic meal plan for 3 months and then I “go off the wagon” and make bad food choices. How do you stay on diabetic meal plan longer than 3 months.

  3. Judith, we all fall off the wagon from time to time. The trick is to get right back on. To help ward off cravings, Rhodes gives himself a “cheat” meal once a week . He tries not to go totally crazy, but will indulge in a favorite meal or dessert (or both) on his “pirate night.” Usually, he feels so bad the morning after, that it prevents more cheating the next day.

  4. Judith, a nutritionist recommended “intentional eating” or “mindful eating” to us. If at all possible, don’t eat in front of the TV or computer. Sit down at the table with all your food on one plate. Enjoy each bite, chew slowly, drink lots of water with your meal. Once the plate of food is gone, the meal is over. No more food. It is so easy to overeat when you are distracted by TV or the computer. Try making your computer or TV room a no-food zone. Enjoy sugar free drinks, hot or cold teas, sparking waters, and sugar free gum to keep your mouth busy. Good luck!
