See guys…the problem I have is this. I want to get my levels down to where they need to be to have a child, but my husband and I cannot afford low protein food. The only thing I have is noodles and snack food. Not much except for making spagetti 200 different ways :-) It’s really a struggle for me because I really want to get the levels down but I get frusterated feeling like I cannot do it without low protein food. Does anyone have any advice as how to go about this in a better way than I am?
