I don't have diabetes (a fact which constantly seems to astound my doctors) but my fiance was recently diagnosed with adult onset type 2 diabetes (and high cholesterol) so we've had to make some drastic changes to our diet to accommodate. He's been better sticking with it than I have. What can I say, I love me some carbs, especially a good alfredo pasta and I had some reaaally good alfredo over the past weekend.

I've done low carb before. I lost fifty pounds on South Beach and then gained it back a year later when I went back to a diet of heavy carbs. Now I don't have a choice in the matter (well, I do, but I hate cooking separate meals) so I've started shedding a little bit of weight again, much slower this time since I'm not the one going whole hog low carb. I still have my sugary granola bars every morning for breakfast because they're something I can keep in my desk at work.

The downside to low carb eating is that you end up cooking the vast majority of your meals, and if you forget to take something out of the freezer to dethaw, like I did this morning, you're kind of fucked for that day and then you have to go to the store even though there's all that perfectly good meat RIGHT THERE, it's just frozen blah blah blah.

I've been scouring the internet for new recipes since most of my staples are high carb, but if anyone has any good low carb recipes that they're fond of, feel free to share.
