RECI......your probably gonna smack me....but are these recipes for diabetics or people on low fat diets??????

Because i see all low fat ingredients....and nothing that a diabetic can't have....except that some ingredients are high in carbs...which turn to sugar...which are'nt the best for a diabetic......

I think these recipes are great for someone who's on a low fat diet......they look awesome.

I'm not trying to be a pain....sorry!

The ADA diabetic diet is actually one of the best all around diets...i convinced a couple of girls to try it after they had tried all of the fad diets...and they found that not only did they lose the weight they wanted but had more energy...peg
