I've never tried low carb.  Although i do try to not eat processed carbs like breads, pastas, etc and eat more produce instead

It just sort of happens with me. I'm not fond of pasta or bread, so I don't really eat it. I'll have extra salad if we're having spaghetti & meatballs, or I'll make roll-ups (wrap the meat in cheese ) if we're having sandwiches.

I do a lot of veggie meals. Tonight I made lasagna but instead of noodles I used sliced eggplant. I also added zucchini to the ricotta cheese mixture. My husband couldn't even tell that there was no noodles in it!

What a great sounding meal!

That sounds really good. I like eggplants and never would have thought to replace noodles with it.

Modulating insulin is the key to the sugar busters diet plan, which says that by controlling the intake of sugar, insulin secretion can be controlled. Carbohydrates in an unrefined form, such as fruits, green vegetables, dried beans and whole grains, require further digestive alteration before absorption, thus modulating insulin secretion, which results in lower average insulin levels and less fat synthesis, storage and weight gain.
