Cathy @HopeFloats2020 , the only truly “0 Carb” meal i know of, is a leaf of iceberg lettuce served with a celery stalk and a glass of distilled water. But be careful not to eat too much.
It is okay to eat carbohydrates, even in significant amounts, as long as you understand what you are eating, how the foods you are eating release carbohydrate and if you offset the expected rise in glucose level with activity and insulin. Yes, this disease IS a lot of work, but I expect by this time next year you will be such a pro that the “lot of work” portion will be an almost automatic reflex. Don’t starve your brain; the only food a brain can eat is carbohydrate.
In addition, you will be learning how the “glycemic value” of various foods affects YOU. Some foods, like candy and sweet drinks, will cause BG to rise very quickly - things you will use to pus yourself out of “a low”. After eating these and seeing your BG rise significantly, you miost probably will see a BG drop to lower than before eating unless you couple the fast acting glucose with a more complex carb-food.
Some meals, although having a “high” total-carb count - such as pasta, you may expect to see a more gradual rise in your BG followed by youyr BG remaining slightly elevated for a while - possibly needing a carefully calculated “correction bolus” 4 hours after the meal. You can still enjoy life - I’m waiting for this pandemic to finish up [maybe in 2022] so my wife and I can eat out again, split a medium size pizza, she with a couple of glasses of wine and me with a couple of pints of a local brew.
