Yesterday and the day before I was at a conference. I found myself eating a slightly low-carb diet over that period, mostly because I couldn’t control when I would be eating next and I knew eating fewer carbs would control my blood sugar during the day. Today my fasting blood sugar was down to 136 – the lowest I’ve seen in a long time.
In the past low-carb diets have failed me, perhaps because I did them to the extreme. No carbs at all, or very very few – like, under 20g per day. In this case I ate probably 100g throughout the day and didn’t stress about it too much. Maybe this is a direction. Or maybe my glucose meter is malfunctioning because my house is freezing.
I know exercise is a key part of getting well. I’m working 12+ hour days right now – sometimes over 15 hrs/day without much of a break as I’m learning new skills and covering for people who are out. This too shall pass, but when I say I’m busy, I mean I’m really busy.
