Me too. Since being diagnosed 3 months ago, I've manage to reduce my Hb1ac from 10.2% to 5.2%.
Like wifilib, I have an almost zero tolerance approach to carbs, I aim for <30g a day, mainly by eating low or zero carb food for breakfast and lunch, so that I can eat as many vegetables as I like with my evening meal (and I never eat pasta, bread or rice).
I haven't missed the carbs at all. I feel 100 times better, and 20lbs lighter.
