One of my sons is a long distance runner (marathon) and he competes in a high level in Europe. He eats between 120 and 150 carbs each day, a bit more those days he competes and also when he has intervall exercise. Protein is used to maintain and build muscles so he eats about 130 gram of protein each day (he is 66 kilo).
He exercises twice a day each day and takes intervall exercise on a treadmill twice a week. He also has a physical hard job, but still he manage just fine with better result from one season to the next even if he pr. definition lives LCHF (LCHF is everything below 150 carbs each day).
There are many people competing in worldclass that have discovered that LCHF is a good way to live.
Also, when living LCHF we dont eat grains fue to all the carbs in grain, and that gives many of us a better digestive and it also makes problem we were used to have to disappear.
The absolutely best way to deal with hypoglycemica and PCOS is LCHF, because it is the only way to make the BG steady.
My believe is that you could get much better control if you reduced the carbs.

By the way, carbs is the only nutrition we dont need at all, it is just the fastfood for our bodies.

Default gastritis

it seem to be a acidic problem with the food, as in if you drink dietcoke(which i do), and don't eat food past 7 ph you will get acidic, but yeah wheat is one of the problems, which is why i'm avoiding it, yet trying to find some food that makes me wanna eat. thus this is why i'm avoiding fat and not too much proteins either, you get plenty of proteins anyway. it's about preferance, and allergies also. the problem right now is that all food i can buy here is like filled with wheat, and you can't really escape unless you make the food yourself, avoiding canned, freezed all kinda stuff, so bread is completely out of the picture, thus you need to make new recipes and find way out of the issue. but what food is out there, that doesn't need preservance? potatoes for one, but to eat that as a diabetic you have to make something out of it that drops the blood sugar level increase, at the same time GI and GL. we have things like potatocakes, oatpancakes, waffles, icecream from yoghurt, that makes the GI drop to a decent level, and I guess this was developed on this intent, but i can't be certain, but mainly i try to figure a way to avoid the sugar wheat and whatever causes your blood sugar to raise, but still get carbs.

Carbs cause blood sugar to rise. The more carbs you have in your diet, the higher your BG will be. The best bet is to lower your carb intake and up your protein and fat intake.

In addition to what silvertiger siad, ...when you eat low carb/high fat you are also naturally eliminating most wheat.

i'm sorry, my sources is something called glycemic index and glycemic load, which means that i'm calculating what effect a specific food and different types of carb are effecting the blood sugar, so feks you got sugar, which is a 100 GI, wheat which is 80, then you got other types of food like oats, which is about 55, the higher GI the bigger uptake of sugar in a short amount of time, thus, if you eat pure sugar it takes a few min, if you eat wheat together with milk you will have better benefits than eating wheat only, as milk is lower GI, but all together if you eat lower GI bread from whole wheat, it will be better than if you eat wheat, etc.. now my dilemma is. if I eat some kind of sugar like in a chocolatecoffee at night, or a chocolate, my blood sugar raises to 15, then i go to bed, and next morning it can get down to 2, which is too low, thus if i have eaten 1 piece of chocolate and forgot eaten bread before bed, the insulin effect is making me sick enough until the insulin has effected, as well as drop low enough to have a hard time get out of the bed, now what i need to do is to have a calculation of how much GI and how much food i need to eat before bed time to have a normal blood sugar level, cause in the morning i ccan't do anything until the food has gone through the stomach, which take about 2 hours, same if you forget eating your blood sugar drop down, you're suddenly just laying in bed cause your blood sugar drop. if anyone got a way to calculate this i would really appreciate it, since i need a diet to avoid getting sicker.

I found out that i have been eating sugar every day since i was 13 year old and that it might cause me to get diabetes on top of the sensitivity, and thats what i'm trying to stop the process off.

oh yeah it makes sense what you say about it being carbs effects, but the reason you don't eat sugar, potatoes and wheat, is that the blood sugar effect is higher than what you can take within 3-4 hours, and you ain't sustaining the blood sugar effectively, but in my case my blood sugar will be too low if i'm not eating carbs, and i need to balance exactly carb intake to have a normal blood sugar, as well as it has to last until next meal, or else im' depressed, hungry and stressed.

therefore i think that i need high amounts of carbs which last for 4-6 hours so i never get sick before i eat again, but same time doesn't make the blood sugar too high.

Avuna? We're only too familiar with the glycemic index and the concept of glycemic load. And we know it doesn't work. You can spend the next 20 years trying to figure out some calculation that will make it work, or you can accept right now that carbs raise your blood sugar, which causes a reactive low in the night and you wake up miserable. There is no need to 'balance' carb intake . . . carbs are not essential nutrients, so you could live a hundred years without ever eating another gram of carbs.

And you can explain the glycemic index until you're blue in the face, but it's hogwash, and it won't help you control your diabetes. Who is telling all this GI stuff anyhow? Your doctor?

All you have to do to stabilize your blood sugar is try the low-carb/high-fat way-of-eating for two months. Then come back and tell us how it worked.

the reason i'm struggling with this type of diet is that fat makes me feel bad in stomach, a year ago i tried it and ended up eating meats and sour cream, not sure what more you need to make it work. the other reason is the availability of the foods. but yes it does work to lose weight. i'm having issues eating this type of food tho, and i felt depressed last time i was on it. changing your diet to the opposite of what you are used to eating is also a problem. since i'm struggling making foods, i can't really get fibers and vitamins needed either.

There are plenty of vegetarian sources of fat, so you don't have to eat meat and/or sour cream. You can eat olives, avocados, nuts of all kinds - macadamias are especially high in fat - and of course coconut milk and oil. Either someone is fooling you, or you are fooling yourself into thinking you must eat carbs to control your blood sugar, but any way you look at it, you are being deceived and your poor health proves that.
