Kickinit,

I wish I could eat like that. I really do. The day before yesterday, I had 4 oz of cottage cheese and 3 more of high fat Farmer's cheese for breakfast. My blood sugar went from 114, immediately before eating to 162 1-hour post prandial. I was back down to 128 at 2 hours. (Supposedly about 8 grams of carbs.)

Yesterday morning, the Farmer's cheese alone took me from 110 to 122. I now have to give up cottage cheese.

One bite of bread, it doesn't matter whether it is white, whole wheat, rye, or sourdough gives me a 50 to 60 point increase in blood sugar at one hour and a 20 point increase at 2 hours. I've tested carefully, though not as sufficiently as I really need to do.

Jeff

Jeff,

When you do that "testing" ... is that the only thing you eat and then test or is it in combination with other foods and that is the cumulative reading.

Thanks

Linda

Cottage cheese is one of my biggest regrets! 1/4 c max.

Linda,

Yesterday and the day before, those were the only foods I ate. The day before that, I had a Sam's Club Brautwurst, some Jalzburg cheese, some bouillon, and the cottage cheese and Farmer's cheese. BG went from 107 to 148.

I was trying to isolate the problem. Immediately after the 2-hour test, I ate double the bratwurst and measured at the 3-hour mark. I was back down to 114. 4-hour mark, 111.

Had a Lettuce wrapped Big Carl Combo, upgraded to salad w/ Ranch dressing (no croutons). I tested the ranch with a urine glucose test strip. The maltodextrin just barely turned the color of the strip, so I put the Ranch on my salad. The sauce on the burger turned the test strip to the second level color, so I wiped that sauce off as best I could and put a bit of the ranch on the burger. At the 5- 6- and 7-hour marks, my meter read 116, 114, and 108 respectively. I didn't test again after dinner and I didn't test as thoroughly yesterday. Nor will I today.

Jeff

Rather than choose the LCHF diet option, which I felt was too restrictive and not something I could do for very long, I chose the low simple carb/eliminate sugar, drop a couple pounds, and get some exercise route. I feel I can do that for decades.

I eat whole grains instead of white versions, limit sugar to almost none, and eat basically anything I want as long as maintain or lose weight. I exercise daily, and use testosterone gel for low testosterone, which my research says can be related to low insulin production. I use no other medication.

Results: My fasting blood sugar is in the 90's or lower. My numbers are never in the diabetic range any more (usually in the 80's to 120' at 1 hour after a meal), and today after a rare test meal of a Whopper, fries, and a Coke (with sugar), I had a one hour reading of 99.

Although consensus on this board seems to favor the thought that when it comes to Diabetes, "You either have it or you don't," so you better eat LCHF, my experience so far says that eating a balanced diet, and exercising can do the job just as well - at least for me, and at least so far.

I would be interested in seeing long term studies of what happens to people who choose my chosen method of balanced diet and exercise, as opposed to people who jump right in to LCHF.

I know there are some people here with strong opinions. I'm not trying to start a war. I'm just stating my experience for those who care. Opinions on both sides are welcome. I'm here to learn.
I'm happy for your success however your story is very familiar to newly diagnosed T2 because you guys are in the honeymoon period with diabetes. I've heard and read many, many of such success stories like these over the years.
