“As an athlete with Type 1 Diabetes, I have two good reasons why I should eat healthy. For me, less carbohydrates means less insulin injections, better health and longer life,” says Gary. “Every diabetes educator stresses the importance of diet and exercise. However, it’s difficult to make the right food choices all of the time. We’re told to reduce carbohydrates, to eliminate rice and pasta. With 1/3 the carbs, skinnypasta™ makes doing the right thing enjoyable.”
