Have done so. Now what is the difference between Likes received and Likes given? I just did Likes. Also is this to be done every time I receive an email to you? Or is it just set up for liking a particular email you have replied to. Sam

It is not for emails. The "Like" is there for you respond to what is said in a particular post.

The forum system keeps track of the total number of times you have hit the "like" button, or given a Like. It also keeps track of the number of likes your posts have received and gives the total.

I have just pressed the Like button on your post just above this one of mine. There is now a bar below the text showing that you have received a like and from whom.

I don't remember reading any of this. I believe I need to spend more time understanding how to do such things. There are members I did not hit that like button that have answered me. Is there a place that has all of the posting with replies that I can go back and take care of that situation? I don't understand why one would give me a like when all I do is ask questions. ha!

Yes on avocados, although they are mostly monounsaturated instead of saturated. I prefer the latter. I also avoid polyunsaturated as much as possible which rules out pork, chicken for the most part and all commercial "vegetable" (seed) oils. The PUFA I do get is from nuts so I try not to be excessive with those - though I LOVE them.

No, it won't help you put on weight. Tweak protein up a little (gently) for that.
Sam, I just received an email yesterday that VeeJay had told me that saturated fat is good for you. I don't like to email my niece, but she has a doctorate in nutrition/diatetion and is a assistant professor at Brown University. She told me the same as VeeJay did that saturated fat is fine to eat as long as you don't eat grains or sugar with it. My dad right in front of me when I was 19. The doctors told my mother that he had a clot in his aorta the size of a golf ball. It's in our family. So I don't eat much red meat. I am 73 and for me it is difficult to believe when i have been told all my life not to eat red meat. My cardiologist even told me one steak a week. This site Blood Sugar 101 is telling me a lot. It is the grains and sugar that makes the difference. Sam

VeeJay,
Did you just receive a message I sent titled, "Just Like Yesterday" It is not showing up as one I sent. I sent it private. Sam

Sam,
I press the 'like' on your posts sometimes as you do ask good questions and your are analytical, that I like!

I have the book Blood Sugar 101, the white one. I got it back in 2015. I think I found a used one on Amazon.com...I much prefer the book as I can grab it and verify things and Mark pages and favorite quotes...

I am 66, my Dad had major Aorta Blockage when he was 47, but survived having that fixed. He then had a major heart attack at 65, he survived but was never the same. He died when the Aortic graph he had replaced at 47 broke...he was 69! Also my Fathers Dad died of a heart attack at 65. None of them were ever diagnosed as diabetic. They both smoked, I do not.

I have been following LCHF since 2015. Like you it was really scary and hard to get myself to start eating lots of fatty meats, Heavy Whipping Cream, etc. etc. Here I am over a year later, down 50lbs, blood pressure 120/75, Cholesterol on target now, etc. etc. I turned 65 last year and I had a heart scan and stress test for my heart last summer.....just in case! My heart and aorta, and arteries in my neck all got a grade A, passed with flying colors.....man was I relieved! Since I started LCHF life style (not a diet to me, as I eat better than before) my A1c has been between 5.5 and 6.2! Before LCHF it had creped up to 7.9 Yikes!

So come on in and enjoy the fun, the water and steaks are really good!
By the way, I can have a Scotch and Soda and/or a glass of red wine if it suits me.....My doc says it is good for the blood....not sure that is scientific?!

I can't drink because it kicks me into AFIB. Ask me if I miss it? Ha! I have a light beer, because they are low in carbs. I can't get into see my doctor so I see one of his PA.s. I used to love scotch. I would get heart burn and drink scotch and milk. Life is not for sissies. Thanks for the reply Sam

A word of caution about going low-carb since you are taking glymipride which could make your BG go low unexpectedly. I really think you need some real guidance from your medical team on how to manage your meals and glim doses - something better than telling you to keep your BG near 200 to compensate for the BG lowering effects of the glim.

I agree VeeJay, I went to at 11pm with a 156 reading. At least I slept through the night. My niece in an email stated if I go on insulin she wants me seeing a dietitian. I can't afford to take my glucose reading every hour. I have been urinating this afternoon. I will walk for 15 minutes around 4pm and eat at 6:15-30. I have to eat more carbs with the glymipride. I honestly did not know that med could put you into hypoglycemia. I don't feel hypoglycemia anymore. I remember checking my bs one time and it was 45. This as a few years ago. I am a mess aren't I.
