I was diagnosed with GD last week and my doctor put me on a very low carb diet, basically the Atkins diet. He said no cereal, bread, tortillas, etc., not even whole wheat. He said basically protein and veggies. From what I have been reading on the message boards, it seems like everyone else can still eat carbs, but just keep them under certain numbers.
Anyone else on this strict of a diet? I'm just wondering why he has me so limited. I also have gall stones (had an attack a couple months ago), borderline high blood pressure and I'm anemic.
