    What To Eat If You Don't Want To Lose Weight

    I am watching my carbs but have cravings for the usual.......potatoes, pasta, rice, bread and chocolate. Since I'm slim to begin with, always have been, it's harder to choose the right foods. I'm compensating for the calorie loss by eating lots of walnuts, peanut butter, cooking in olive oil and sugar free ice cream (made with Splenda).
    Is anyone else having this problem of not wanting to lose weight? What specific foods are you eating to maintain your weight?

    Hi, I also am trying to gain weight not lose it.Was on metformin and diamicron but the doc took me off as he thought that was contributing to weight loss.He put me on Lantus and novorapid.I have gained about two pounds in the last month which is better as I was losing two pounds a month before.I eat lots of nuts,yogurt strawberries and sugar free pudding.That is for snacks.Regular meals r usually meat and potatoes and lots of veggies.I cant believe how hard it is to put on weight.Oh well I will just keep munching.

    I hope you get your answers, I know my doctors don't have any for me. They just blame the insulin.
