*shrug* as for my "new" diet... i lived off of nothing but that stuff (meaning no sugar, no white flour, no sugar, no white rice, no pasta, no glazed foods, no bananas, pineapple, pears, or other sweet fruit, no potatos, corn, or carrots.)for a year and a half, so i'm fine with it. the only thing i'm not looking forward to again, is the following conversation:

"do you want a donut?"
"no thank you."
"aw cmon, are you on a diet?"
"no, i can't eat sugar."
"are you diabetic or something?"
"not exactly, i'm hypoglycemic."
"hypO or hypER?"
"hypo. i have low blood sugar."
"well, doesnt' that mean that you need more sugar?"
"*heavy sigh* no. if i eat anything with wheat or sugar in it or something too starchy, my system will kick out TOO much insulin, thusly dropping my blood sugar extremely low."

*sigh* in case you're not familiar with blood sugar levels, 'healthy' is considered a fasting blood sugar level of between about 80 and 130. my fasting blood sugar the day i had my glucose tolerance test was 59. after drinking their sugar water, it jumped to 110, then dropped to 49, where i almost passed out. when most diabetics get diagnosed, their blood sugar is at over 300 fasting.
