After months of tests and bloodwork, I've finally been diagnosed. I'm borderline diabetic due to very high triglycerides - over 500. Due to my new job, I have literally no time to work out, and I'm still maintaining the 22 lbs I managed to pack on. My doc said that if I don't get this and the stress under control, that I'm high risk for cardiac problems; most notably, a heart attack. I'm 28. She also noted that one way to decrease the level of triglycerides is to decrease my carb and fatty food intake. However, I don't really eat fatty foods aside from the weekends. She cut that out as well. My question is, if you cut carb intake, what else do you eat? I obviously need to alter my diet, but I don't know where to start. I looked on the South Beach diet website, but I need more to work with. Spending 45 minutes in the morning making breakfast isn't a reality for me. What else can I do to approach this situation?
