I purchased and read the book BloodSugar 101. I don't know where the problem lies. It seemed to work for awhile, but then suddenly stopped. I am seeing my doctors PA tomorrow to have him look at my reading. I weigh less than 149 in the buff and possibly this is the problem. I want to thank VeeJay and mbuster for all of their help advice.

Hmm. 55g of fat and 40g of carbs. That's 660 calories. How much protein are you eating? If you're eating a reasonable amount, you're barely clearing 1000 calories. That would be insufficient energy (starvation). That can cause various undesired effect. If you're eating reasonable calories, say at least 1800-2000, then you'd be eating WAY too much protein. In any case, what you're doing is NOT LC/HF.

I am eating more protein than anything else, but the protein has fat in it. Example, I eat 6 chicken wings a three times a week, an 8oz filet mignon, salmon, I eat a lot of sardine at lunch everyday. I am not starving myself, but is this to much protein? If so what does this mean.
My dad died in front of me when I was 19. He had a large blood clot in his aorta. I just can't force myself to eat saturated fat or at least a huge amount of it. I also have arthiosclerosis (sp). They make these studies and then find out later they were wrong. I have a niece that is an assistant professor at Boston University in nutrition/dietician. I asked her about coconut oil and she told me the latest study is not totally conclusive and she would not use it as yet. I see the doctor's PA today. I hope he isn't going to want me to take another pill or go on insulin. It seem at night when my blood sugar gets around 125 I have attacks of neuropathy. None during the daytime. I am not able to sleep when this happens. What is your consensus. Sam
