As luvmybhm pointed out earlier, it's not so much a low-carb diet as a low-refined-carb diet.And for me, the problem has always been bread. Your average, grocery-store whole wheat bread has to have some white flour in it to distinguish it from a hockey puck, and the German health bread you get at the health food store makes me even more fervently glad that we won World War II. Now there is an edible alternative: Dave's Killer Bread. Yes, it is whole wheat bread, without white flour. The lightness comes from extra gluten. Yes, it contains (far down the list of ingredients) both cane syrup and molasses. Dave's genius was to provide extra fiber to offset these refined carbohydrates with a mixture of just about every kind of seed I am aware of. While eating it regularly I was able to lower my A1C from 6.5 to somewhere in the low 5's (I don't remember where exactly). You might consider trying it if it's available in your area.
