So when I was pregnant a year ago I had gestational diabetes. I went in today to re-check if I have type 2 diabetes. I had to drink the orange drink that had 75 gms of sugar in it. I was really upset that I had to drink it cuz it doesnt go well with the diet. I am on phase 2 and have been doing well. I decided not to have any grains or fruit today but do you think I should go back to phase 1 for a few days or go back to phase 2 tomorrow?

I think you'd be staying on Phase 2, unless you notice a lot of cravings. If that's the case, then a few days of Phase 1 will help get rid of them and get you back on track.

I hope your tests come back just fine, MzThang!

Until you know for sure, just carry on with Phase 2. It is one of the most recommended diets for Type II Diabetics. Please do NOT cut out good carbs.

Thanks Cottage, I hope it comes out negative as well. I will find out in a week. 95% of my family has type 2 diabetes so I have a high probability of having it. I am just hoping that the healthy eating has corrected it.

I havent had any cravings today so I will just continue on with phase 2 tomorrow.
