Default What a difference 4 months makes

We come here to Bali for extended periods frequently but last time in June/July was my first time since starting both insulin and LCHF and I was so apprehensive about coping while here, however I did OK.

Now this time I am so calm about the whole thing and everything is going so well BGwise that I don't even feel like cheating and it is looking as though I may well be able to drop my insulin from 12 units to 11.

Have some family members here also for a week and last night they chose a Mexican restaurant which can be tricky can't it but I did it and I am so happy cos I love the flavours of Mexican food. Just left the bread on the plate after I ate the very yummy topping.

Also have found that if my BGLs are low and I don't eat any other carbs I can have 2 Bintang beers with no bad results which makes me very happy and quite makes up for the desserts others are eating!

I do tend to waffle on a bit but getting to the point. This site has saved my bacon (literally and figuratively) and I thank you all so much. My toes thank you too and my kidneys and eyes certainly will be thankful too in the future.

PS. The fact that it is Avocado season makes up for the fact that it is also Mango season...

Congratulations! I have not eaten out or taken a business trip, but I have some planned, I hope to have a similar experience. About the Mexican restaurant: I could scrape the inside of the taco (burrito etc) out and eat it, but what about the rice and beans? I guess we should just skip those -- in my case, the rice would definitely be a bad idea.

You could order Fajitas and not eat the taco shells that come alongside them. Thats what I do
