Ok, I took a couple days off from tracking everything, which was apparently all I needed, because now it’s fun again. I’ve again started my High Carb Low Fat Diabetes Experiment. I tried this before and was interrupted by a stomach bug which destabilized my system and added a confounding variable for about a week. I stopped the experiment and now I’m ready to pick it up again.
After eating pretty much whatever I wanted for a week or so my fasting blood sugar was back up to 140 yesterday morning. Yesterday I limited fat to 69.2g (28% of total calories) and today’s fasting blood sugar was 121. Tomorrow I’m sure it’ll be below 120 again. Will update with results.
On a side note: You know what’s really delicious? 1/2 cup of Nonfat Greek yogurt (I use Dannon Oikos brand because it doesn’t have a bunch of additives), 2T fructose powder (or sugar), and 1T cocoa powder. It’s my new favorite thing.
Oh and HOLY SMOKES I feel so much better being off starches again. It took about 3 days for my mood to completely recover back to where I’m smiling for no reason. That stuff has a terrible effect on me. More on that later.
