LC/HF In 7 weeks since dx my fbg has dropped from 243 to low 80's with occasional 70's. Only reading over 100 (109) was on Feb 22! Coming from a LF low calorie mindset, this really amazes me! Also have lost 11 pounds!!

Congratulations, by the way!

I checked "other" because I'm only low-ish carb and high-ish fat. I eat about 90-150g of carbs a day right now, but I may drop that soon since I'm trying to decrease my meds.

I checked "other" also, because while I'm on LC/HF, I'm taking it up a notch to ketogenic.

Hmm - I checked LCHF because I thought being ketogenic and limiting protein automatically put me in that category ... now I don't know what the heck I am (what's new?)

It seems many of you are on lc/hf. May I ask if you could post what a typical day of eating may look like for you? I'm awaiting my blood test results from the doc and am pretty sure I will hear the dreaded diagnosis in the next day or two. Trying to research and prepare myself. My diet has always been so high carb and I just cannot imagine life without all my little carb friends.....well I guess they probably weren't really friends, now were they? Anyway.....a glimpse into your food day would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

The weird thing? I actually have lowered my needs for insulin, lost weight without exercising, and I feel decent.

I also learned about portion control. I was eating like a pig when I was eating LCHF - and the primal way.

Calories really do matter.

I thought the dietician would be wrong - turns out that I was.

One thing I will add though - I REFUSE to eat processed crap. I think that may have made the difference.

For example, I won't eat margarine, fat-free stuff, etc. It has to be as natural as possible, That means butter, olive oil, etc.
Jason, not necessarily sacralege...you are a Type 1, and as there has been many discussions on this forum regarding CDA/ADA diet, it is not a wise choice for Type 2's. Type 1's are very different because of the fact they do not make insulin, and therefore must use insulin regardless of diet choice. For those Type 1's who become insulin resistant, then it may be a different story because the carbs may affect them the way they do a Type 2. So, a HF/LC diet is not necessarily the way to go for Type 1. Many, if not most Type 2's have great success with LC/HF WOE. You eat according to what works for you and that is wonderful. Type 2's eat to what works for them. The goal for all of us is to lead a long healthy life as close to normal as possible.
