Low-carb dieting has been something of a trend for some time– whether you have diabetes, or not. For many dieters out there, carbs are thought of as the food to avoid, and diets from Paleo to Atkins, are though of generally, as no-carb (really, low-carb) diets, even those there’s a lot more to them.
However, if you have diabetes, you know that keeping track of your carbohydrate is more than just a fad. It’s a necessary part of management.
But if you’re successfully keeping your numbers controlled and always have a good A1c, is it really all that necessary to follow an actual low-carb meal plan? How much will it really affect how you feel? Will you even notice a difference in your diabetes management? What is all the hype about?
