Calcium is normal, sodium slightly low. Rest have not been tested. I dislike salt. Probably reason my thyroid was removed

I remember discovering the impact of cereals on my BG levels back a few years ago. It was quite shocking as I had been eating cereal often and once I cut it out of my diet my insulin consumption radically dropped.

It's amazing how years of marketing can make you think eating breakfast cereals is a healthy thing to do. I always ate non sugar added cereals which really made no difference.

Hi friend, thanks for reply. I agree with all you share. Yeah, I was shocked ! 3 hours my levels drop to 86. First time I ate cereal in a few years, I had a tiny bowl, not the huge bowls I used to eat, with ice cream and banana. No more cereal for me I need to stop trying to change my diet, but I get so tired of eating the same meals.

Infinite, are you responsible for cooking your own food? Are you in a situation that lets you cook batches of stuff you can then freeze to space out servings of a dish? Do you like to eat full meals or do you prefer to graze?

I'm the cook in a family of two adults so I have more latitiude than most in what (and how) it's served.

Hi Steve, I prepare majority of my meals, I eat what my mom prepares 2 to 3 times per week. We cook and freeze a lot of meals. I like to eat full meals, which has worked well thus far.

Whatcha like to cook ?

Thanks friend, reading through material slowly. I'm beginning to learn, what works for others may not work for me, vice versa.

tbh right after I hit my all-time high a1c (again) and I decided to go low-carb/high fat, I really wanted nothing to do with preparing food. A cabinet full of recipes and a pantry full of foods I no longer wanted to eat and I was just done.

For a while. Then the cooking bug bit again.

I tried that cauliflower-crust pizza that's the rage in LCHF and paleo circles. My first try was, well, better than not eating pizza, but I've worked on the recipe to the point that I can pick up a slice and my non-diabetic wife prefers it to the pizzas we can buy.

I have tried substitute ingredients for other recipes, like using cauliflower "rice" for stir-fries and dishes like stuffed cabbage, and shirataki noodles ("miracle noodles") or thinly-sliced cabbage or green beans in dishes that call for noodles (like pho and stroganoff).

And I've discovered some good sites with recipes for people on ketogenic eating plans (keto is like the top end of LCHF). I found recipes for keto chili and some cream-based soups that are quite tasty.

Most breakfasts are an egg or two and a breakfast meat (bacon, sausage, etc.) or an omelet filled with some good vegetables and cheese. I'll admit I'm a little burned out on that but not yet enough to search for alternatives. I'm not tied to eating "breakfast foods" for breakfast, though, so leftovers break the monotony some.

Lunch is almost always a green salad with some meat or chicken or fish; between changing the salad components and the protein and the dressing I haven't managed to get bored with it even though it's essentially the same meal 5-6 days out of 7 each week.

I'm lucky that 1) I never had the sweet tooth some folks have; and 2) my wife joins me in eating what I'm eating. I'm also lucky that I know how to cook. That has helped a lot.
