Default trying to find a diet

i'm very used to using sugar to get my bloodsugar up and such especially i been eating sugar now at christmas, and now it's not very good for me, cause if i eat sugar at night i can sleep for hours and when i wake up the blood sugar has dropped very low.

i thought that my blood sugar went very high lately cause i been having a really bad diet for years and i think this is very bad and that it causes me to get diabetes?

is prediabetes such that you can't take sugar without dropping in bed and such, or does it mean i have diabetes already if i can't eat it?
can i get free of the diabetes 2 without taking meds?

i'm also trying to cure this with eating high carb next to no fat and not so much proteins as i'm trying to lose weight, and i'm used to high carb, what i'm figuring is that strawberries and culture milk would provide me with the extensial low GI food but high in carbs andi can still eat a lot of of it a lot more than things like rice, but i'm also adding mungbeansnoodles to get high carb but low GI , in such a way that i can eta high GI cause if i added this i dont' get as high blood sugar.

Let your meter tell you what you can and can not eat. You may find your path turns from high carbs low fat to just the opposite, low carb / high fat.

I found the opposite, high fat/low carb to be way more effective for me to both lose weight and control my blood glucose levels.

The most effective food plan for me has been high-fat/low-carb. The Glycemic Index is useless for me, because I'm not trying to spread out the spike, I want to avoid it altogether. Since carbs are the foods that raise blood sugar, I avoid eating carbs as much as possible. As MCS says, you must test after your meals, and let your meter be your guide. If any foods raise your blood sugar over 140mg/dl in the hour after your first bite, then that food needs to be avoided, regardless if it's on the GI, or any other suggested list.

what i'm trying to achieve is a 300g carb diet, cause that's what i want especially with workouts.
so basically, if i want 300g carbs and 80g proteins with diabetes, and high fat is bad for me due to gastritis, i want as low GI as possible with as low GL as possible to avoid it inflecting my blood sugar, i want to add milk and sour milk to mostly all food to avoid getting a high blood sugar. so things like yoghurt ice with chocolate is actually eatable, due to this. since im dependant on sugar, but can't eat it without milk, i assume that this is the way to go. i'm trying to make tags from sour milk to be able to eat more of it, without getting high blood sugar, but same time i'm gonna lose weight, so things like noodles i can eat 70g of without it raising my blood sugar to higher levels same time the gi is quite low so it's not riasing my blood sugar to higher levels than it should. it's like with strawberries and some vegetables, you can eat loads of it without a lot of calorie increase, and not a lot of blood sugar increase. i just wish i found something better than beans.

do anyone know where i can find info on food like this? and what is actually healthy and what is not. I'm trying to replace high raise in blood sugar with carb food, that doesn't increase it.

there is 2 diets on it i believe, the one is low carb high fat, and the other one is high carb but with no increase in blood sugar, thus also reducing your weight, but not sure where i can find info on recipes. i don't think i can ever get used to low carb and eat vegetables and proteins all the time, especially since it's far more work and there is nothing in the store that gives me these foods.

You are kidding, right. What are your blood sugar numbers before and after you eat? Where did you get the advice for your diet?

Do you have a life insurance policy? It will be paying your beneficiary soon.

If your working out 6-8 hrs a day I could see where you may need that many carbs, but a normal 60 minutes a day your body doesn't need that many carbs. The excess will be converted to lots of un used glucose leading to fat deposits and trigs.

i used to workout like 3-4 hours 4 days a week and with muscle workouts, the diet 300g is solely based on what i have been eating before to keep up(this is with sugar, but then again i was 90 lbs before i started gaining pounds, with a diet consisting of half a sandwich at year of 12 raised up to 8 sandwiches at 15(130 lbs next year), 20 years later i've been 200 lbs for quite some time with this workout, but right now i don't need this, since i'm not currently working out, but i plan to go back to it. the reason i say this is that i need 1500 calorie diet, and that i'm currently not able to eat a lot of fat(about 200 calories possibly), and that i don't eat more than 50g proteins a day. thus 200 calories there, is 1100 calories in carb(280g), 200 calories in proteins and 200 calories in fat. i doubt i can go much below 200 with current weight especially when i start workout again which i currently don't hvae energy for with a current carb intake of 100-150.

had to say that i also need to take into account hypoglycemia(my doctor has not yet figured i'm far above what i should be when eating sugar, since the fasting blood sugar is ok), i also have gastritis, which causes a problem to the diet(acidic stuff), and i'm in fairly bad shape which causes me high blood pressure, pcos and issues with sitting in a chair and laying down, thus my pulse rate is constantly high from smoking every 30 min and just movement is a struggle.

Just a comment on my experience. I used to have bouts of gastritis and then I started eating low carb/high fat with little or no wheat products and I no longer have any bouts of gastritis.
