i dont know if you are actually looking at my individual posts that im posting. it seems as though your trying to reem down my throat for eating carbs. 2 days ago i started a diet of eating low carb. im not STILL eating it geez. i come to a forum for help and i feel as though not once but TWICE people are treating me like crap. thanks for all of those who are actually helping and not reaming down peoples throats. and my sincere apologies for this post if your not trying to do so. it just feels that way to me with cap sizing your words and such.

If you are referring to me, you can rest assured that I read every single post on every single thread on every single day.

I quoted the part of your message that I was addressing, the part that said you seem to think that if you eat fats, your weight loss will slow down. That is so not true.

You have come here describing a great many obstacles in your path to managing your blood sugar and losing a lot of weight. Many of us have been down that path ourselves and we would like to guide you around the pitfalls. If you would rather not be guided so emphatically, then I will retreat and leave you on your own. I hope two days on LCHF is enough to have given you the firm resolve you're going to need in the years to come.

krobinson,

I take offense at your attitude. When it comes to people criticizing Shanny I have a very small window of tolerance. I owe her more than I could ever repay.

When I came to this forum 6 months ago I was a newly diagnosed Type 2 diabetic with a FBG of 300, an A1C of 8.8, and no knowledge of diabetes or the terrible damage it can cause. Shanny was one of the first to set me straight and get me on the road to getting healthy. Today I have a FBG of 100, an A1C of 5.4, I've lost 40 pounds, and I feel better than I have in YEARS!!! How could I ever repay Shanny and the many others here that have helped me for that?

Yes, I too received a few verbal kicks to the rump when I needed them, but I didn't whine or run away. Instead I listened to the many knowledgeable people here and learned how to control this disease.

Shanny is very direct and rarely sugar coats anything. The longer I hang around here the more I realize that a little tough love is exactly what many diabetics need. Many are in denial and don't comprehend just how sick they are because they don't feel all that sick. The truth is diabetes CAN maim you. Diabetes CAN cause you more pain then you can imagine. Diabetes CAN kill you.

In most cases none of that is necessary if you take action. Action based on facts!!!!

I hope you decide to stay here and learn, as I did, how to help yourself. I understand if you don't. Some people just aren't ready to stop making excuses and start fighting this disease.

Either way, the best of luck to you

There's no attitude. I apologized for sounding bad. It was not intended. I am gonna stay and learn but I felt offended myself . I'm sorry it blew out of proportion.

You were given a lot of information in a short period of time. It's enough to make ones head spin. I'm glad you have a positive attitude toward making the necessary changes. I'm sorry for the misunderstandings. Hopefully we can all just put that in the past and move on.

You say you have completed two days on LCHF. Good for you. It is perfectly normal for one to feel not so good the first few days or even a week or two as the body adjusts from feeding on carbs to feeding on fats. The salty broth is a good remedy, and so is drinking lots of water. (Actually, I just poured some salt into my hand and licked it up, followed by a large glass of water).

I didn't know about the LCHF diet at diagnosis, but did know about Atkins. And even though I didn't eat as much fat then as I do now, it certainly did help my BG to come down fast and I lost weight immediately and quickly. What I liked about it was the food lists - didn't have to figure anything out or look up carbs - it was all there for me. But the LCHF for Beginners is an excellent way of eating and is probably closer to the high-fat part than the basic Atkins.

Use whatever diet you choose as a starting point. If you test all your foods, you will over time compile a list of "safe" and "unsafe" foods for yourself.
